Tour Description

Discover two of the most fascinating places in Italy with our Pompeii and Positano Tour.

If you’re spending some time in the area of Sorrento, Naples or Amalfi, you can’t miss Pompeii and Positano.

Our professional tour guides will help you explore these two world-famous sights in the most comfortable, informative, and entertaining way.

1. Pompeii

Our driver will pick you up at your hotel, and you’ll start your Pompeii and Positano tour with a visit to Pompeii.

Here, you’ll meet your local expert – a professional guide who will accompany you through this vast archaeological site.

Pompeii is a truly unique place. It’s an ancient Roman town that was buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79 AD, and then forgotten until 1748.

The archaeologists who dug it up could not believe their eyes – the ashes of the volcano had preserved the city for almost 1,700 years. 

And it wasn’t just the buildings that were almost intact – many of the decorations had also survived, and were amazingly well preserved.

In Pompeii, you can admire the stuccoes, wall paintings, and even some pieces of furniture from the Roman age. 

It’s like an art history book, written on the walls and columns of the city.

As you walk through the streets of Pompeii, you’ll feel as if you’ve stepped back in time to the 1st century AD.

You’ll wander through the public baths where the Romans bathed every day, and walk in the footsteps of the ancient Pompeiians, along the same cobbled roads. You’ll also see the evocative temples where the gods were worshiped.

During your visit, your guide will help you to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of Roman art. As well as finding out what these intriguing artworks represent, you’ll also learn about the different techniques and styles.

Your Pompeii and Positano tour will last about two hours. Afterwards, it will be time for a lunch break; your guide will happily recommend a traditional local pizzeria or restaurant.

2. Positano

Next, you’ll continue your day in Positano, the “pearl” of the Amalfi Coast. This will be the second stop of your Pompeii and Positano tour.

Positano is one of the most picturesque places in Italy. From the top of the hill, you’ll wander through the small alleys that lead to the dazzling blue Mediterranean sea.

Positano is also called the “vertical” city, since it’s almost entirely built into the slope of the Lattari mountain. The main parts of the city are connected by charming alleys and flights of steps.

The town is full of pretty little houses painted in pastel colors, overlooking the gorgeous Li Galli islands. It offers an unforgettable view of the Amalfi Coast, Capri and the Gulf. 

Take your time and stop for pictures, or enjoy a drink and a pastry in one of the many local bars and cafeterias. 

After your guide has shown you the highlights of the town, you’ll have some free time for shopping. Positano is also famous worldwide for its linen products and colorful clothes – “Positano style”!

Enjoy the smell of the fresh lemons, and feel the Mediterranean sun on your skin. Breathe in all the beauty you can during your day trip.

At the end of your Pompeii and Positano tour, your driver will take you back to your hotel.

But after a day in paradise, you may not want to go back…

    Italian ArtVentures' Feedbacks

    Above & Beyond

    We were amazed by the service we received in Rome and even in Benevento. Giovanni went above and beyond to organize tours and transportation for our family of 15 traveling. Massimo was an incredible and knowledgeable tour guide in Rome. He made it fun for the kids and knew when to take a break. Provided water and an amazing lunch spot for us all. We still are talking about some of the stories he told us. Stefano met us at the train in Benevento and was only supposed to drive us through San Bartolomeo, my father's hometown. But he pulled up my father's and grandfather's genealogy and found some interesting facts that were amazing to find out. He printed and laminated it for us to take. It was an emotional day but such a wonderful part of the trip. The minibus was perfect for everyone to fit comfortably and head over to Almafi. Thank you Giovanni and your amazing staff for making this trip one of the most memorable trips ever!!!

    Giovanni was so exceptional at his job that you left the trip feeling torn between wanting to tell the World and also keeping him a best kept secret. Everything that he had orchestrated happened, seamlessly for us as if he had choreographed the entire country of Italy to show up, act, behave on queue. I put together a lot of trips, all over the world, for a group of around 20 friends each adventure. As the chief coordinator, you are always a little concerned about third party tours and tour guides: will everyone show up, is this a scam, can they speak English? Giovanni had infinite patience answering my questions and provided so much detail about our adventure, that everyone knew what to expect ahead of time. He took into consideration everyone’s interest, abilities and aptitudes. We saw a side of Italy that felt intimate and entertaining. There are not enough stars in the galaxy to award him.
    Great Experience!

    What a great experience for me and my family to have these private tours planned by Giovanni. We wanted a curated set of events during our time in Rome and Florence and Gio delivered such a wonderful set of activities to suit my husband and I and our two teenagers. Each of the four days was a memorable experience. Alex was so fantastic and I would recommend him highly- we had one our best meals with him just learning from him and having great conversation. Andres in Florence was a blast and incredibly connected to the history of the area, just a wealth of information so much so that we are definitely coming back to Florence to spend more time. Caterina walked us through the Roman ruins and the Colosseum which was awe inspiring. And, one of the best things we did which I highly recommend is a pasta making class with Romina. We learned to make two dishes with her and then ate the food we had prepared. Such a great way to spend our time connecting to Roma. Thank you Gio and to all our guides! We will cherish our memories made together.
    Thank you!

    Highly recommended!

    I highly recommend Italian ArtVentures. We decided to use a private tour company, rather than the cruise ship excursions, and we were not disappointed. Giovanni was excellent at planning. We booked a tour in Rome and Pompeii. Giovanni was able to customize a tour that was special to us, so we could visit the LDS temple. Maria was our guide at the Vatican. She was fun, smart, and thoughtful. She translated for us as needed and was able to answer all of our questions. One major bonus of having a tour guide is skipping the line for St. Peter's Basilica. Our driver was awesome, traveling quickly and safely. The van was new, clean, and comfortable. We asked for a restaurant recommendation, and Giovanni made us reservations for Amalfi. It was incredible. The next day, we went to Pompeii with Stefano. He was fantastic. He made sure we saw the highlights and we avoided the crowds because of his expertise in the area. Booking was simple, communication was excellent, the cost was well worth what you get. This company is very professional. Totally awesome experience!
    Perfect Tour

    Truly outstanding experience visiting the Vatican with Maria! She was the perfect guide - knowledgable, smart, funny, passionate about the subject matter. She had a deep knowledge of the art, architecture, history, and the religious significance of the whole area, and gave us thoughtful, interesting commentary throughout our tour. Although she seemed to have a bottomless knowledge of everything, she also knew how to present the information in a way that was considered, insightful, and crucially, not too overwhelming for us. As we walked, she called attention to many things, some big, others details that could easily be missed. She was well prepared, but also brilliant at answering questions and flexible about following our interests. Several times she pointed out a small detail, then drew a connection back to it later in the tour. She knew the Vatican, Sistine Chapel, courtyard and Basilica like the back of her hand, steering us to less crowded routes and perfect viewing vantages. One of us is Catholic, and one of us loves art, and Maria brilliantly held both our interests throughout the tour. Highly Recommend!
