What You Can Expect

Naples and Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Admire views of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius

Start your day with a pickup from your central Rome hotel or alternatively, start your tour at a meeting point in town, near Rome Termini Station. Hit the road and travel south to Italy’s Campania region, and as you gaze out at the pretty landscape of Castelli Romani look out for Abbey of Montecassino -- a spectacular Benedictine monastery perched atop of a hill.

After a journey of roughly three hours, arrive in the southern Italian region of Campania and head straight to its capital Naples to discover its delights from the comfort of your coach. Entering the city via the coastal road from Mergellina Port, pass through Naples’ fishing quarter, Santa Lucia, and then stop for photos in front of Castel dell’Ovo – the medieval castle on the seafront.

Continue to the city’s historical center to see Piazza del Plebiscito, the impressive square that’s home to Naples Royal Palace (Palacio Real), three other Bourbon palaces, and an eye-catching colonnaded church – Basilica of San Francesco di Paola. Hear the history of Naples in its 19th-century heyday when the Bourbon kings ruled the land, and then take in more of the center’s A-list sites. See San Carlo Opera House, the Gallery of Umberto I and, finally, the imposing Castel Nuovo.

Leave the city, and travel south toward Mount Vesuvius, passing the towns of Ercolano (Herculaneum), Torre del Greco and Torre Annunziata before arriving in the town of Pompeii. Stop for a well-earned lunch in one of the town’s traditional restaurants, and then head out to visit Pompeii’s UNESCO-listed ruins on a 2-hour walking tour. Learn how the ancient city lay buried under Mount Vesuvius’ volcanic ash for centuries and see incredible excavations of old monuments, like Teatro Grande -- a theater that once seated 5,000 people.

After your tour, head back to your coach and then travel north back to Rome. Your tour finishes back at the start point near Termini Station. Alternatively, you can make use of a drop-off at Via Veneto, Piazza Barberini, Piazza Venezia or Piazza della Repubblica; simply let your guide know on the day.

Our tour to Naples and especially Pompeii was unforgettable. We were picked up at our hotel at 07:00 in the morning and we were back at our hotel at 21:00. We got to see Naples through the bus windows so to speak with one breef stop at the marina harbour, where we could see over the bay over to Capri and Vesuvio, a beautiful view. Our main aim by taking this tour was to see Pompeii, and what an experience. To think that over two thousand years ago man had allready planned cities with streets, main streets, multi storey high buildings, snack bars and last but not least with drainage- and plumbing systems. The only difference between Pompeii anno AD 78 and the modern city is the invention and use of electricity. Nothing else. It's amazing. Next trip to Rome will defenatelly include a revisit to Pompeii, there is so much unseen.

Our guide was very informative and made certain that all participants were able to hear her and be comfortable. The visit to the Cameo factory was not needed and seemed planned to extract a few more euros commission for the operators.

Our family really enjoy the tour in Pompeii. The two hour walk in Pompeii is too short. We do not have enough time to cover the whole site.
