"Our family spent an entire day
with Fabrizio. He picked us up at our apartment in Rome and drove us south
to Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano. Fabrizio was very informative and enjoyable
as our driver. We would highly recommend him for all your tours. It was
really a wonderful, enjoyable day. Thank you so much for arranging with
Joe to return the camera bag. I don't know if you have done that yet or
not. Joe will be returning to Chicago next week so I hope the bag has
been returned. Thanks so much"

This is an 11-hour excursion to discover the most
interesting archeological site in the world and the natural
beauty of Europe's most magnificent seascape, the Amalfi Coast.
The car will pick you up at your hotel in Rome
and drive you to Pompeii, the most important
archeological site in the world. Pompeii is located
on the southwest side of Mt. Vesuvius and close
to the Gulf of Naples. It is known throughout the world
because of the violent eruption of the
mighty volcano in 79 AD. As a result, the city was destroyed
by this tragic event that
literally sucked the life out of its citizens in a very
short period of time.
The entire site was entombed by 30 feet of ash and wasn't
discovered until the end of the 18th
century. Once excavation began, it was as if the city
miraculously came to life again. Your glimpse
into the magic and mystery of every day life can be
witnessed while walking through the site.
There is a bakery, theater, gymnasium and public bath,
to name but a few areas. They all stand as a
sentinel to a time and lifestyle long gone. There, you
will learn about daily life, religious
beliefs and government organization.
Your trip will continue along the most stunning of Europe's
seascapes. As the road twists and
turns, each view is a new and unique sight to behold
as you gaze down to the beautiful sea. The
Amalfi Drive is, in fact, a truly amazing construction.
You will then arrive at the picturesque and peaceful
Amalfi Home. The trip will continue to
follow the picturesque Drive along the the Sorrentina
and Amalfi Coasts. You will enjoy your lunch
in the marvelous fishing village of Positano, famed
as Europe's most beautiful seascape. During your
fine walk down to the beach along a pedestrian-only
area, you'll notice that it's virtually a
vertical town filled with terraced and colorful houses.
Many shops are filled with items designed
and fabricated by local artisans, including clothing
We'll then be returning to home base, Rome.
