Day tours from Rome

I would like to take a one day tour of Pompei and the Amalfi coast from Rome or one tour to tuscany. Any recommendations on tour companies/guides? Any cheap tour companies would be appreciated as this is the last days of my travel and running light on cash. Thanks in advance. Nicky

Keeping it cheap and in your own time.

To visit Pompeii, train to Naples then the www.vesuviana.it train to Pompeii Scavi. Tourist guides are available if you wish.

Train to Florence and enjoy the capitol of the Italian Renaissance

You can easily get to Pompeii on your own and then hire a guide at the site. This will be much less expensive than taking a tour from Rome. You simply take the train from Rome to Naples. Once in Naples, go downstairs to the commuter train. Buy your ticket along the way. Take the train heading to Sorrento. The Pompeii Scavi stop is about a half hour trip.

The train from Rome to Naples is 44 euros and the ticket to Pompeii is less than 10.

If by then you may have more time than cash, the train to Naples can cost as little as €10.50 each way....

Make sure that when you are on the regional train from Naples to Pompei (the Circumvesuviana) that you get off on the Pompei Scavi stop, not the stop that is just labeled Pompei. This is a mistake that a lot of people make the first time, if they don't know in advance.

Enjoy!
