"Fabrizio provided our family of five with an excellent day trip to Pompeii and Positano. He provided a lot of historical facts about the area, and his english was excellent! He was very professional, and very punctual. It was well worth the price to go first class with Fab!! I would highly recommend his services to anyone visiting Italy.

This is a 7-hour excursion to visit one of the most interesting archeological sites in Italy, that of the temples of the Greek civilization. Another stop will be at the tiny village of
Vietri, home of remarkable ceramic artisans.



The car will pick you up at your hotel
in the areas of Rome, Naples and the Amalfi Coast. You will be driven to Paestum to see the
remarkable Greek temples. They were made of rough and solemn stones that embody all of the willpower
and true genius of the Greek civilization. These glorious buildings represented challenges in this
countryside dominated by the flatness of the sea and the horizon. The monumental temples have
survived throughout centuries and remain in a fine state for all to see. They rise beyond the intact
circle of the city walls, and are the most conspicuous examples
of fortifications in western Greek cities.
Directly in front of the temple dedicated to Neptune are areas of flowering roses. They
illustrate the tradition of 'biferia rosaria' here in Paestum. They were celebrated by Virgil and
other Roman poets. These particularly beautiful roses were also known to and admired by many foreign
visitors. When they were traveling on their Grand Tours, they were certainly captivated by them
while being exposed to the Greek and Roman civilizations.
On the return to your hotel, we'll travel along the coast and stop in Vietri sul Mare. It is
here in this small Campanian town, that you will discover many artisans and ceramic masters. There
are many interesting, unique and wonderfully colorful ceramic masterpieces that will
fire your imagination.

The excursion is for a party of up to 6 people,
