POMPEII Covered in lapillus and magma by a drastic eruption of the Vesuvius of the year 79, Pompeii was completely forgotten for over 1700 years. Dug out only recently it keeps the wonderful layout and shape of the original city! In here you will spend around 2 hours!

DRIVE ON THE AMALFI COAST Done with Pompeii, over to the Amalfi Coast. You will drive along it stopping here and there for wonderful pictures. You will see Sorrento from a higher point of view and then over to a mountain that overlooks Positano. For what? Well, check below.

LUNCH AT LUIGI’S there are few words that can describe this spot! Uncle Luigi will be waiting for us right in the doorway saluting us with the famous “Buongiorno”! From here onwards it is a SPECTACLE. Just a quantity and quality of food that is out of this world: family style, nicely served 3 different kinds of appetizer, 3 different kinds of pasta, desserts, Limoncello and mostly all you can drink! To top it the most amazing view of Positano you will ever get! Is this a dream? No this is LUIGI’S!!

POSITANO After lunch to walk it all off, just downhill to this postcard town for a wonderful little walk through its narrow streets and picturesque stores! Around 3:30 pm we will make our way back to ROME.
