For those who want to venture out from their base in Rome and get a taste of some of the highlights of Italy outside Rome, a private tour is one very good option to consider.
For the ultimate in convenience and flexibility, a private car and friendly English speaking driver from your hotel in Rome offers a custom itinerary where you can go where you want to go at and a pace you want.
We offer a few very popular pre-planned itineraries or you can opt for something totally different and unique that you specify.
If you opt for one of the popular pre-planned itineraries you still have the freedom to adapt the day as you go along, making your own personal discoveries and perhaps dwell a little longer or skip time here and there.
One of our English-speaking drivers will pick you up from the lobby of your hotel in Rome and will be at your disposal throughout the day.
You can choose a start time that is convenient for you, between 7 and 9am.
First destination is Pompeii, a long drive down the motorway/freeway from Rome.
Your driver will make sure you pass through the most interesting places, so you don't miss any highlights along the way.
At Pompeii you have the freedom to explore independently, hire an audio guide or we can arrange a private guided tour.
And of course you can stay at Pompeii as long as you require and continue onwards immediately after you exit the Pompeii site.
In the afternoon you head to the nearby dramatic Amalfi coast line.
The road along the south coast is beautiful, one of the finest drives in the world. Positano is one of the favourite places to stay and explore for a while.
Sorrento at the end of the peninsula is the largest town for visitors at the centre of an orange growing district.
Private round-trip transportation between your accommodation in Rome and Pompeii plus the Amalfi Coast
Departure between 7 and 9 am, tour lasts around 11 hours
Up to 8 passengers per car
Price per car, not person with various vehicle sizes
An English speaking driver always at your disposal
Optional private tour guide for Pompeii
Clear, simple pricing, no unexpected extras
Just pay a small deposit to make the reservation, pay the driver on the day
Private car tour of Pompeii, Sorrento & Positano from Rome
• 11-hr duration • You choose start time • Hotel pick-up • You choose pace and level of guiding • Private tour guides optional extra • See famous Amalfi coast
The same format and flexibility as the Pompeii, Positano and Sorrento tour above, but instead of going south we go north to Florence.
Florence, the historic Renaissance city is home to the Uffizi Gallery and the Accademia Gallery, where so many wonderful pieces of art are on display, and some well known attractions of Florence include the cathedral and Palazzo Vecchio.
Your day in Florence is fully under your control.
You can include a scenic orientation drive through the city so you can appreciate the beautiful architecture and attractions in full.
If you prefer to spend time experiencing la dolce vita alone you could explore the winding streets and alleyways, take a peek at the ancient city walls and sip coffee at one of the pretty pavement cafés within the ancient squares of Florence.
Your driver will drop you off at a convenient location and arrange to collect you from a pre-arranged point at a later time.
You may prefer to book a private tour guide in advance as part of the tour to ensure you visit the most popular and historic city sights with tickets for the Uffizi Gallery and Accademia Gallery, saving you wasting any time in long queues.
Drive from Rome to Florence for a day tour through Tuscany
• 11-hr duration • You choose start time • Hotel pick-up • You choose pace and level of guiding • Choose between Uffizi gallery & Accademia, squares & churches
The same format and flexibility as the two tours to Pompeii and Florence but with a travel time of under an hour between Tivoli and Rome, therefore a shorter time travelling before sightseeing.
This is a delightful excursion to the hillside town of Tivoli with the breathtaking water gardens at Villa d'Este and the amazing Villa Adriana.
The first stop can be Villa Adriana, it was a complex of over thirty buildings constructed during the second and third decades of the II A.D. by the Emperor Hadrian. He enjoyed the villa very much and for many years he governed the empire from this retreat.
The other famous villa Villa d’Este was built in 1550 as a summer residence by Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este and contains hundreds of gurgling fountains driven only by the natural pressure of the water. Set among a stunning backdrop of box hedge gardens and mazes, they are the major attraction.
As ever on private tours, the time and pace is yours to customise. Just tell the driver how you want to spend the day.
Drive to the hillside town of Tivoli, Villa Adriana & Villa d'Este
• 4,5 or 6-hr duration • You choose start time • Hotel pick-up • You choose pace and level of guiding • See Villa Adriana & Villa d'Este
