What You Can Expect

Naples Shore Excursion: Pompeii Half-day Trip from Naples

Naples Shore Excursion: Pompeii Half-day Trip from Naples

On a fateful summer's day in 79 A.D., Mt. Vesuvius erupted, spewing volcanic ash over the prosperous city of Pompeii. Unaware of the imminent danger, most people continued on with their daily lives and as a result the entire town and around 20,000 of its inhabitants were buried under tons of ash and pumice.

Almost 2,000 years later, you have the opportunity to explore the site of this famous disaster and see first-hand the houses, streets and public buildings miraculously preserved by the volcanic ash.

Accompanied by your guide, you'll see such fascinating places such as the Forum, Thermal Baths, Lupanare brothel and Vetti's House with its beautiful frescoes.

Well worth going to. Unfortunately the day we went the weather was extremely hot and made the experience less enjoyable. Be preparded with plenty of water and even an umbrella for shade, as there is none on the tour. Guide was informative and explained things well for us to understand.

Our tour guide met us with no problem at the pier. We took a large bus for the 40 minute ride to Pompeii from Naples, which thankfully was air conditioned as it was extremely hot that day, 97 F. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided a really good background and explanation for the site. It was easy to hear him using the audio devices provided. He was also very considerate given the extreme heat and made sure everyone had plenty of time to refill water bottles at all of the Pompeii fountains. This was a 4 hour tour which got us back to Naples in the early afternoon so we could enjoy a lunch of the pizza for which Naples is famous.
