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.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, departing promptly from the port at Naples and meeting our guide at Pompeii. Andrea was very knowledgeable and his commentary of the site was both informative and amusing. After a pizza lunch we travelled to Mt Vesuvius, a journey of 45 minutes,during which the weather took a turn for the worse and on arrival at Mt Vesuvius a storm was imminent and therefore for safety reasons access to the mountain was closed, disappointing but unavoidable. Good value for money excursion.
Just the right amount of time spent in Pompeii. Andrea, our tour guide made the tour a lot of fun and kept all ages engaged. Highly recommend the Vesuvius climb. I was a little worried about the climb from reading other reviews about how difficult it was. My husband, myself, our three teenage daughters, and our 9 year old daughter all did it with no problem on a hot day. Yes, it's steep, but certainly walkable and you have plenty of time if you'd like to take it slow. The views into the crater and out to Naples are beautiful from up there. Lunch was provided at a tourist stop pizza place. The pizza was excellent and the service was friendly and accommodating. BRING A WATER BOTTLE!! You'll even have an opportunity to refill it inside Pompeii from a spring fed fountain.
