What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Pompeii Half-Day Trip from Naples

Explore the ruins of Pompeii on this private tour!

Your driver will pick you up from your Naples hotel, the Naples railway station or the Naples cruise terminal at your selected departure time and take you to Pompeii, located about 30 minutes away. Here, you’ll be greeted by your private guide and given an introduction to Pompeii.

On your 2-hour visit of this famous archaeological site, you’ll learn about what happened here one fateful summer’s day in 79 AD, when Mt Vesuvius erupted and volcanic ash spewed over the entire city. 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.

Nearly 2,000 years later, you can explore the site of this infamous disaster and see first-hand the houses, streets and public buildings miraculously preserved by the volcanic ash. Your private guide, an expert archaeologist, will take you on a private tour of the excavated city, which offers a snapshot of 1st-century Roman life frozen at the moment Pompeii was buried. Explore fascinating sites such as the forum, the thermal baths, several houses and villas, the Lupanare brothel and the House of Vetti with its beautiful frescoes.

After your visit to Pompeii, you’ll have some free time to explore more on your own before hopping in the car and heading back to Naples.

Transport-Only Option
If you prefer to explore the Pompeii ruins independently, the transport-only option offers private round-trip transportation from Naples and lets you spend time in Pompeii on your own. Your driver will wait for you while you wander around Pompeii for a couple of hours, and then take you back to Naples. There is also an audio guide available (additional cost).
