What You'll do in this tour

So you don't want to worrying about luggage, taxis or booking train tickets?  No problem. Instead of taking the train or even a non stop transfer transfer with a simple driver, consider taking advantage of our TRANSFER TO YOUR NEXT DESTINATION WITH DAY TRIP - “Door to Door” services!  This service is for those who wish to go from one city to another and prefer to explore the surrounding regions and turn their private transfer into an adventure! After all, it is not just the destination that is important but the also the journey!

With our driver guides, all of whom speak excellent English available to you throughout the day, you will enjoy the panoramas throughout the countryside and about mid way through your travel you will stop in a destination and you can choose how you will spend your time with the assistance of the driver guide whom will give you general information about the area.  Options vary depending on your route but usually you can choose from simple free time for site seeing or shopping, taking a short local tours on some routes, and of course time enough for lunch where you prefer. Your driver guide will be happy to give you the best suggestions for lunch depending on your personal tastes and budget.   

This journey is arranged with about half of the time for travel and half for stopping. In case arriving without stops is more for you then be sure to look for our TRANSFERS DIRECT - NONSTOP and ONE-WAY for the fastest journey from one accommodation to another.  If you don`t see the cities you need to transfer between, just let us know and we can tailor a transfer that suites your needs.

Tour Description:

We will start out towards Rome early from the lobby of your hotel but will be sure to stop for a cappuccino and cornetto on the drive to Pompeii which will be our first stop.  You will arrive at the Scavi to start your 2hr private walking tour at about 10:30am.
 
Pompei...The Forgotten City 

Pompeii used to be a resort town in the South of Naples, located  on the western coast of Italy.  Many wealthy Romans had "country homes" there.  On a fateful summer`s day in 79 AD, Mt Vesuvius erupted, spewing volcanic ash and lapilli (a small, lightweight pebbly material) over the village of Pompeii.  At it`s largest,  Pompeii had a population of approximately 20,000 people.  Most people fled the eruption but an estimated 2000 people did not and died from toxic gasses or were buried in the eruption along with the city.  Lasting for almost a full day, Pompeii was buried under some 25 feet of volcanic material

While Pompeii remained in the local`s  memories, as time passed it`s location was lost.  Rediscovered in the 1700`s. Excavation was started, but not until the mid 1800`s was there meticulous recording of the discoveries. Amazingly preserved by the lapilli and ash,  much information from Pompeii has been regained.  Almost 2,000 years later, you have the opportunity to explore the preserved ruins of this famous disaster.

After your tour in Pompeii and depending on your departure time, we usually have time to stop in a small family restaurant for some authentic Italian food or authentic Neopolitan pizza right at the scavi before continuing on to  

You will be in the center of Rome about 2.5-3 hours after leaving Pompeii depending on traffic.  

We will need to know your traveling cell phone number, hotel address and phone number, as well as how many are in your party and if you will have excessive amounts of luggage.  This will help us accurately quote your service and send the correct size vehicle. 

*If you are binging more than one medium to large bag and one small carry on per person please notify us so that we can assess what size of vehicle we will need to send you and this may affect the pricing.
