What You Can Expect

Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii Day Trip from Naples

Pompeii, Italy

Your guide will collect you from your hotel or train station to kick off this Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii day trip from Naples. Venture into the ancient Roman city of Pompeii on a half-hour coach ride and learn the history behind the area that was infamously covered by ash nearly 2000 years ago. 

Follow your guide on a 2-hour walking tour of this UNESCO World Heritage-listed site and learn about Europe’s largest archeological grounds. Stop at the Forum, Thermal Baths, Vetti’s House and the Lupanare brothel. Your guide will offer historical context and insight into local life here back in 79 AD. Once you’ve explored the grounds, savor an Italian pizza lunch with your group before enjoying time to wander the shops.

Afterward, travel by air-conditioned coach to Mt Vesuvius and journey on a moderate hike to the top of the active volcano with your guide. At the summit, some 3,900 feet (1,200 meters) above sea level, take in panoramic views of the Bay of Naples. Roam around the volcano's mammoth crater and keep an eye out for plumes of escaping steam. If you prefer to skip the hike, you'll enjoy free time while waiting for the group, but the trip to the top is definitely worth the effort.

After successfully climbing the top of Mt Vesuvius, relax with a ride back to your Naples hotel in your comfortable coach.

The tour to Pompeii and Hike were well worth the trip. The tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable about the site. This was our 8th English speaking tour that we booked using Viator while we were in Italy for almost 3 weeks.

Incredible! Probably my favorite thing I did out of 10 tours from Viator. A very long day but worth it. Food was good. Our guide Francesca was great, just wish we had a little more time on the mountain. The hike is no joke, be prepared, views at the top are worth it.

The tour was great. We were picked up at our Hotel and went to Pompeii then Vesuvius. The bus was comfortable and the guide was very professional, funny and showed us things that normal visitors would probably never know.

Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius were wonderful. We were met at the hotel, driven to Pompeii and then handed off to other tour guides who spoke our respective languages. Lunch was fine. The bus guide told us when we arrived at the drop off point at Vesuvius it usually takes 30 minutes to hike up and 20 minutes to return to the rally point. It took every bit of that time. I was glad I wore tennis shoes and had wished that I wore shorts vice jeans. I recommend the tour. Enjoy your trip.
