Rome and Pompeii Walking Tour

Rome and Pompeii Walking Tour

A week of awe in the glorious Eternal City and down the coast at extraordinary Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast and other historical sites of great interest.

In a departure from my other weeks, this Rome and Pompeii Walking Tour is spent in the wonderful urban destinations of Rome and the coastal city of Salerno. The food is great, the wine is great and the company, as always, is great too.

Next Dates : October or November 2025, exact dates tbc.

Location : Rome and Salerno, Italy.

Level : Moderate, with just one slightly tougher day, but it’s spectacular. The grading is ‘moderate’ because walking in cities, while more or less flat, can be tiring.

Distance Walked per Day : No more than 10 – 12km.

(When walking around cities and visitor sites, you should always count at least 10km per day, even if you don’t realise it at the time!)

Duration : 9 days, 8 nights, 7 days of walking, Oct / Nov 2025.

Description :

One of the world’s great cities, a few days in Rome is never enough. However, we do make a good stab at it.

We will stroll the beautiful city centre, visiting some of the essentials, like the Forum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Vatican City and more. We will discover some of the city’s over 800 churches, including one that houses 3 Caravaggios and another where some famous Irish people are buried.

Leaving Rome, we descend by train southwards to the port city of Salerno, base for our discovery of the remarkable Pompeii archaeological park, the Amalfi Coast and the wonderful Greek temples at Paestum.

Both single and shared rooms will be available on my Rome and Pompeii Walking Tour.
