What You Can Expect

Naples City and Pompeii Half Day Sightseeing Tour

Explore the ancient ruins of Pompeii

Your guide will pick you up from your chosen Naples location in the morning. Your day starts with a 2-hour coach tour of Naples’ highlights.

Admire Castel Nuovo (New Castle), a symbolic royal structure dating back to 1279, and see San Francesco di Paola church in Piazza del Plebiscito, the city's main square.

Hop off the coach to explore the area around the Royal Palace of Naples, one of the four residences used by the Bourbon Kings during their rule of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies from 1730 to 1860. Enter the dome of Naples Cathedral to learn about the significance of this grand church.

Your last stop in Naples is the hill-top Posillipo quarter, where you'll pause to enjoy panoramic views of the city and the Bay of Naples.

Drive 30 minutes down the coast to the legendary city of Pompeii. Arriving in the late morning, you'll have time for lunch if you wish (own expense) before taking a guided walk around Pompeii's haunting ruins.

Hear how this ancient city was destroyed by the infamous Mt Vesuvius eruption in 79 AD as you visit the Forum, the Thermal Baths, Vetti's House and the Lupanare brothel, which were all buried by volcanic ash after the sudden and devastating eruption.

You’ll spend two hours exploring this fascinating archaeological site with your guide. Then hop in the coach for the drive back to Naples.

Promptly picked up at our hotel in a clean, air conditioned bus and met by Andre, our guide for complete tour. Andre is fluent in many languages, but English was our language and we were very pleased. His passion is history, therefore, we had an informative tour with a tremendous amount of humor thrown in. The city tour was quick but saw much more than if we were on our own. About 40 minute ride to Pompeii. The site was so interestingly presented by Andre. While there were headsets for the Pompeii portion of the trip - it was always easy to hear and understand what Andre was saying. Back at the entrance, a gift of Lemoncello was a welcome treat. At this time, we opted to go on to the afternoon Mt. Vesuvius tour which included lunch. Lunch was a typical Italian lunch. Another short ride and we were at the base of Mt Vesuvius. We were given time to climb and return Its a hike, but well worth it. Again spectacular sites from the view at the top you will think was worth the hike. This was the last of the 5 tours we took with Viator in Italy. All upcoming tour needs, I will definitely choose Viator as a booking site as promised, prompt and professional. P.S. If you can get Andre for your guide you are in for a treat!

We had Andre as our guide for both portions of the tour. We enjoyed both potions of our tour. Not only was Andre informative - he has a tremendous sense of humour. While there were headsets for the Pompeii portion of the trip - at times it was difficult to make out what Andre was saying. Driver nice

My husband and I were really happy that we booked this tour of Naples and Pompeii. I don't think that we would have been able to make our way around Naples by ourselves like we did in Rome. You definitely want someone to guide you around this city. Our favorite part of the tour was, of course, Pompeii. Our tour guide really knew her way around these ruins, and she was well-versed on the history of the city. I definitely recommend this tour!

The tour was great. Tour guide was excellent. On other hand there is difference between actual and web price. I ended up to pay more than supposed to be.

Well worth booking the city trip as the guide was very knowledgeable and was able to show us parts of the city of Naples we otherwise would have missed.Pompeii is a must unfortunately we had very bad weather the day we went so advisable to carry an umbrella with you as there is no shelter and the place is vast but well worth the experience.
