Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Rome, Italy

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I picked this tour only because I wanted to visit Mt. Vesuvius. Unfortunately, by the time we got to the top, it started raining so we had to go to the museum in Naples. I would have rather have just gone back to Rome honestly. Our guide on the bus was friendly and the guide we had in Pompeii, Stefano was poignantly funny. I’m glad I was able to see Pompeii, but I would have picked a different tour that included the city if I knew for sure the weather was going to be bad.

My Review

Our bus guide Dario was great, no complaints, but the local guide we had in Florence, Mila, was horrible. She held the microphone to her mouth instead of pinning it lower so all you heard was popping and crackling. When someone told her we couldn't understand, she tried for all of two seconds and then returned. I couldn't tell you a word she said. She would walk well ahead of us and no one in the group would be around her. It didn't even occur to her to turn around to see if the group was with her. You don't get a whole lot of time on your own, an hour, so if you see a store you wanted to go to, best to mark it and run back to it because you'll be meeting your group before you're ready to leave. Lunch was decent, great chance to talk to the people that are in your group. You'll definitely need to go back to Florence because this is literally just a quick in and pop flavor tour.

My Review

Susana is a great guide. Friendly and knowledgeable, you'll do well with her. Make sure you bring patience because the lines and crowds are ridiculous (and you do skip the lines along with the other tour groups trying to sell you their packages).

My Review

It's an area of Rome that you wouldn't know to go to and where everyone will tell you to eat at; definitely worth the experience because you'd walk by buildings without thinking twice. Watch where you step to find the silver plates memorializing where Holocaust victims used to live. Return for fried artichoke and the chili pepper store.
