Visiting Rome doesn’t mean that you have to spend all your time within the city. Thanks to its location in central Italy, the Eternal City also makes a great base for day trips to other Italian destinations. And Amalfi Coast private day tours are among the absolute best one-day trips from Rome.
A section of the southwestern coast of the “boot of Italy”, the Amalfi Coast is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that draws in many thousands of visitors each year. Extending from the Gulf of Naples to the Gulf of Salerno, the region is comprised of rugged coastal cliffs and scenic beaches, gorgeous towns and rural, agricultural lands. There are thirteen communities along the Amalfi Coast, all thriving from tourism, the most famous of which is Positano.
A day trip to the Amalfi Coast from Rome also includes a stop at Pompeii, another one of those numerous world-famous places in Italy.
5 Reasons to Go on Amalfi Coast and Pompeii Day Tours from Rome
1. You Get to Visit Gorgeous Positano
Positano is so beautiful it’s been featured in several movies. It’s the star attraction on the Amalfi Coast. The town consists of wonderfully colorful buildings stacked on terraces in the hillsides behind the small beach.
On our Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Tour, visitors get to spend about 2 hours exploring this beauty of a coastal town. From the nice beach to winding alleyways, historic boutiques and artisanal workshops, highlights are plentiful here.
2. Pompeii Is One of Italy’s Top Historic Attractions
Pompeii tours from Rome are feasible one-day excursions to one of Italy’s most iconic ancient sites. The buried Roman city of Pompeii is truly a sight to see.
