Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This tour explores Pompeii and Vesuvius and gives visitors to Naples what they crave—pizza for lunch.
Your guide will collect you from your hotel or train station to kick off this Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii day trip from Naples. Venture into the ancient Roman city of Pompeii on a half-hour coach ride and learn the history behind the area that was infamously covered by ash nearly 2000 years ago. 

Follow your guide on a walking tour of this UNESCO World Heritage-listed site and learn about Europe’s largest archeological grounds. Stop at the Forum, Thermal Baths, Vetti’s House and the Lupanare brothel. Your guide will offer historical context and insight into local life here back in 79 AD. Once you’ve explored the grounds, savor an Italian pizza lunch with your group before enjoying time to wander the shops.

Afterward, travel by air-conditioned coach to Mt Vesuvius and journey on a moderate hike to the top of the active volcano with your guide. At the summit, some 3,900 feet (1,200 meters) above sea level, take in panoramic views of the Bay of Naples. Roam around the volcano's mammoth crater and keep an eye out for plumes of escaping steam. If you prefer to skip the hike, you'll enjoy free time while waiting for the group, but the trip to the top is definitely worth the effort.

After successfully climbing the top of Mt Vesuvius, relax with a ride back to your Naples hotel or back to the port in your comfortable coach.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Pompeii Archaeological Park
After pickup from your hotel or the Naples train station, take a 30-minute drive to Pompeii, an ancient Roman city that was entirely destroyed by the sudden eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD. The largest archaeological site in Europe, today Pompeii is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. When you arrive, your guide will pick up your group’s pre-ordered tickets and lead you on a 2-hour walking tour of the fascinating grounds. Witness the destruction first-hand as you visit Pompeii’s most famous sites, including the Forum, the Thermal Baths, Vetti's House and the Lupanare brothel, giving you a glimpse into daily life during the Pax Romana. Today you can see shapes of objects — even bodies — that were buried beneath the volcanic ash and pumice.
Duration: 2 hours 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Vesuvius National Park
After your tour, enjoy a pizza lunch with your group followed by some free time to browse the shops. Then board the coach and drive 40 minutes to legendary Mt Vesuvius. Embark on a moderate hike up the volcano with your guide. When you reach the summit at 3,900 feet (1,200 meters), you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the picturesque Bay of Naples from east to west. Peer down into the crater and see plumes of steam issuing from the sleeping, but still active, volcano! 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, but the hike is worth the effort. After your Mt Vesuvius hike, relax on the drive back to Naples in the early evening.
Duration: 1 hour

Brilliant day exploring Pompeii and Vesuvius
Dave

Visiting these were top if our list to do in when visiting Naples. Checking on line, this trip was as by far the best for the price and with great reviews. The trip exceeded our expectations. From the communication about our pickup from hotel to when we were dropped back at the end of the day, it was all very professional, informative and fun. The knowledge of our guide in Pompeii really helped us imagine the ancient city in all its prior grandeur. Lunch was a tasty and fresh local pizza after which we headed to Vesuvius. The climb from the carpark certainly worked off lunch and once at the top the views are absolutely amazing. Would highly recommend this trip.

It was a very wet day and when we were picked up we were warned that the Vesuvius trip might not happen due to this. Therefore we weren't surprised when that happened. We were told to email to get that part refunded. The Pompei part was very good. Our guide had good knowledge of the site and the history surrounding it and was able to conjure up what we would have seen in the days before the eruption.

They made this tour so easy and stress free. From being picked up near your hotel to dedicated vans and buses- you didn't need to worry about anything. I had no idea that Pompeii was so huge- don't expect to see the whole thing. Mt Vesuvius had great views - but be warned that the climb is challenging!

My partner and I were picked up from our hotel 2 days ago on time. Our driver was Marco and we were greeted by the delightfully cheery Francesca. Unfortunately, the weather was awful - long periods of rain. That didn't stop the tour nor everyone have an insighgtful and fun time. The ear pieces given out into which the commentary can be heard as we walked the famous site of Pompei was great. It enabled us to take it all in at our own pace. Francesca's commentary was wonderful and funny. Unfortunately, the Mount Vesuivius tour didn't happen owing to the weather so instead, we were given the opporutnity to tour Sorrento with our guide Alex. A great substitiute trip. All in all, I'd wholly recommmend the tour. Have fun!

The guide was very informative, explained a lot of life in Pompeii before the eruption. It was a steep hike to the top to see Vesuvius, but it was incredibly impressive and an amazing view from up there.

Do not miss going to Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius

Very convenient pick up from historic Naples. The trip to the top of Mt Vesuvius was spectacular. We could have used a little extra time since we had to rush to get back to the bus. Lunch was a bit chaotic since the restaurant was incredibly loud and busy but the food was good even though everyone was rushed. The Pompeii site is fabulous. Our guide was good in general . She seemed knowledgeable but I think a bit cutesy in her comments. Too much time spent on the boudoir life of the romans and not enough about the historic facts. But in general a memorable trip.

The tour was a lot of fun, we went to the ruins and got some good inside information, the summit was socked in with cloud cover so I opted not to go up. But it was a great overall experience.

Great dat out . Company organised excursion well. Fun tour guide for Pompei. Transition to restayrant ok but new guide not as iformative so we were not told how long we has at lunch. That could be easily remedied. Not good for those who are unsteady on their feet as lots of walking.. Vesuvius was great and we consider ouselves fit and we made it in the timeframe stopping to take picures on route. However could have done with another 30 minutes to ease the pressure as some were struggling. Excellent driver who did an amaing job. Great day.

The guides were wonderful, the only thing i didn't like was lunch! For the price we paid, the drinks could be better and so could the food.
