Staying on the Amalfi coast is like living in a dream but it could be difficult to move around to visit other places in Campania. For this reason, we offer our Pompei-Vesuvius tour with private driver also departing from Positano. In this way, you can easily visit the fascinating ruins of Pompeii and after a pleasant stop at a winery at the foot of Mount Vesuvius with Wine tasting, you will have the opportunity to climb to the crater of Vesuvius, one of the most famous volcanoes in the world.
Our driver will be waiting for you at the entrance of your hotel in Positano to accompany you with a last generation mercedes vehicle towards the first stop of the tour: the archaeological excavations of Pompeii, quite rightly one of the most visited sites in Italy, where you can dive in the past and retrace the life of the ancient Pompeians: artisans, innkeepers, peasants, fishermen, servants and aristocrats who crowded the streets, public buildings and churches, lived in modest buildings or majestic villas that can still be visited, made eternal by the eruption of Vesuvius of 79 d. C. and brought to light by the archaeological excavations begun in the mid-700s, which still continue with new and important discoveries. You will have at your disposal about two hours to visit the archaeological area in freedom. In order not to miss any of the places to be seen absolutely, we advise you to ask for a guide that will allow you to discover the most famous places and also those less known in the area …
Once back from Pompeii, stop to visit one of the wineries that rise on the slopes of Vesuvius, where the altitude and the volcanic soil allow to produce absolutely exceptional wines, which you can taste in combination with some of the most typical local products tasty like the “Piennolo tomato”. Do not miss the opportunity to bring home one of the most popular souvenirs: a good bottle of wine to give to friends or to uncork when you will miss the nostalgia of your holiday on the Amalfi coast!
In the afternoon, for the visit to the Vesuvius our private driver will lead you by car up to an altitude of about 1000 meters, from here you will have to continue on foot to the crater of Vesuvius, along a dirt road and uphill but not particularly difficult. Don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes, because the ground could be slippery! Along the way you can admire the fauna and flora that make Vesuvius a place rich in biodiversity to be preserved and respected. From above, a spectacular view will leave you breathless, enjoy the view, take some pictures and then once you are ready, face the descent to the parking lot where Salvatore is waiting for you to take you back to your hotel in Positano.
Along the way back, a small stop on the Sorrento Coast will be possible for the last souvenir photos before returning to Positano. Our driver will be at your disposal to provide information on the additional tours that we offer departing from Positano.
