Don’t miss out on this experience if:

✅ Your stay on the Amalfi Coast lasts longer than 3 – 5 days and you have the chance to get away from the typical Amalfi Coast destinations, to discover more out-of-the-way areas.
✅ You are looking for an experience to do with the whole family.
✅ You are travelling in seasons that are not marked by scorching heat: if you travel in April/May or between September and October, this experience will be even more enjoyable.

Get ready for an exciting experience off the usual routes of the Amalfi Coast!

In fact, this experience will take you a few kilometres further from Amalfi and Positano, travelling back in time: an 8-9 hour tour of Pompeii and Vesuvius, with the Amalfi Coast as a backdrop.

An incredible journey between history and nature

Your journey will begin with a comfortable tourist bus service that will take you from Minori, Amalfi, or Atrani through all the villages of the Amalfi Coast. 

Once you arrive in Pompeii, you will be immersed in the unique atmosphere of this ancient Roman city, buried under the lava of Vesuvius in 79 AD. 

Here, an expert guide will take you on a tour of the archaeological excavations, telling you about the history and daily life of the ancient inhabitants, while you admire the cobbled streets, the still intact houses, the mosaics and frescoes that testify to the grandeur of an era 

Next destination? Vesuvius, one of Europe’s most feared active volcanoes. 

You will ascend by mini-bus and, accompanied by an expert guide, reach the summit of the crater. 

It will be a unique experience to admire a breathtaking panorama of the Bay of Naples, the islands and the surrounding coastline. Weather permitting, you will even be able to observe the fumaroles that still bear witness to the volcano’s activity.

Your tour will end with a visit to one of the most renowned cameo and coral factories in the region, where you can discover the secrets of this ancient craft and admire the artisans’ mastery in transforming these precious materials into unique works of art.

📍 How to reach the starting points of this experience

This tour departs from Maiori, Minori, Amalfi, Atrani or Praiano by one-way pick-up.
You can reach Minori and Amalfi by travelling on board Travelmar ferries, which depart every day from Salerno, Amalfi and Positano with a good frequency until 6pm.
Travelmar high-speed ferries stop at Vietri sul Mare, Cetara, Minori and Maiori.

Atrani is not covered by the sea service, but you can easily reach the town if you travel on the SITA SUD buses, which leave from all the towns along the Coast, stopping at all the towns along the way.

In short, you can easily reach the three starting points by travelling on public transport: the three destinations are all central and easily reachable.
