  • 3.5-hour express tour of Pompeii from Naples

  • Explore the 2,000-year-old houses and streets, and see highlights like the Forum and baths

Meet your guide at Naples train station, and travel to Pompeii by climate-controlled coach. Your guide will accompany you throughout your visit and transfers.

On route, hear about life in the Roman town before the fateful day in 79 AD when Mt. Vesuvius erupted, smothering it in ash and rubble. On arrival, join up with an official Pompeii guide, put on your audio headsets to hear your guide clearly, and bypass the main admission lines, enjoying fast-track access to the archaeological site.

Then, take a 2-hour walking tour of the UNESCO-listed ruins, seeing the semi-intact houses and streets, and highlights like the Forum, baths, and gymnasium. Absorb the haunting sense of time standing still for nearly 2,000 years, and hear fascinating tales about how Pompeii’s citizens lived and died from your guide.

In addition, explore the recently restored ‘domus’  to appreciate the relative luxury enjoyed by Pompeii's wealthy elites, seeing their thermal baths, floor mosaics, and frescoes.

After exploring, enjoy free time for coffee (own expense) or souvenir shopping (own expense), before returning to Naples.

Your trip concludes with an early afternoon drop-off at the station, leaving you with the rest of the day to enjoy as you wish.

Easily found the group. Great tour guides that were funny and knowledgable.

This tour through CityWonders was organized and efficient, two attributes I highly value. A large group was escorted from Rome to meet us in Naples, then we were all divided into small groups of 10 -12 when we got to Pompeii. Our guide was native to Pompeii, an archaeologist, and she walked as she explained the layout and some history to us not much standing around. We saw everything that a longer tour would see, except the amphitheater. This express tour was great for us first-timers now we have a sense of what to see if we ever make it back there.

Lovely compact tour of Pompeii - the guide was knowledgeable and we saw quite a lot in the time. 2 hours is really not enough to do Pompeii justice - I would have loved to also see the arena and the new villa, but there's only so much one can fit into 2 hours.
