What You Can Expect
After a break for an hour to enjoy a delicious pizza lunch, you will then board your coach to transfer to Mt. Vesuvius, to view first-hand the source of the devastation that destroyed the city of Pompeii almost two thousand years ago.
You can choose to climb Mt, Vesuvius (approximately 45 minutes), accompanied by your guide, and walk around the crater at 3,900 feet (1,200 meters). From the summit you will have panoramic views of the picturesque Bay of Naples from east to west. Peering down into the depths of the crater, you may see plumes of steam issuing from the sleeping, but still active, volcano.
A medium to high level of fitness is required to complete the climb. Remember to wear comfortable walking shoes! There is a rest point where you can choose to wait for your group if you do not wish to climb all the way to the top.

Our first tour booked with Viator was great! Our guide in Pompeii was very knowledgable and enjoyable. We got a great education on Pompeii. We were served lunch at a very nice restaurant with choice of pizza or spaghetti-plenty of food! We were given plenty of time to walk up Mt. Vesuvius and well worth the walk. It was a great combination of riding on a bus and walking! It is a great tour for those that want some exercise
Great trip. Excellent guide who was helpfull, funny, very knowlegable and friendly.
Excellent tour. The view from the top of Mt. Vesuvius was great. We got to see the major highlights of Pompeii and our guide was very knowledgeable.
Awesome tour. A must do. Beautiful views on top of Mt. Vesuvius. Also, Margarita was a terrific tour guide and the pizza was awesome.
Pompeii was very interesting. Lunch was better than exected. We actually went to a restaurant. The hike up mountain was harder than expected. My wife did not make it up. The best is that it was half the price of the ncl excursion and was basically the same and included lunch.
We were on a NCL cruise and used a combination of Viator and NCL tours. Viator had superior tours with excellent guides. This particular tour had a great combination of history, walking and hiking for those inclined to have some exercise-besides it offered a nice lunch.
Great Tour just wish we had more time to explore Pompeii and to enjoy our hike up Mt. Vesuvius. The tour guide we had was fast, hard to keep up with her. Absolutely loved Pompeii, always been my favorite history lesson in school.
Wonderful experience and tour guide was marvelous.
Really enjoyed this tour, guide was excellent and informative.
We were very impressed with this tour and our tour guides. Everything ran very smoothly from start to finish. I would recommend this tour to others.
