You’ll then travel out of the city to the ancient ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. s you travel, you’ll listen to stories about each of the sites from your driver guide. Spend 2 hours at Pompeii and 1.5 hours at Herculaneum to learn about life in the towns before the infamous Mt. Vesuvius eruption of AD79. If you want to discover even more, upgrade to include walking tours, guided by a local archaeologist at each site.
After exploring the ruins, enjoy some free time for lunch at your own expense. Then, travel onward to Mt. Vesuvius. After a drive up the steep slopes of the volcano, you’ll hop out of your vehicle for the 25-minute hike up the steps to the crater’s lip.

Use some free time to wander around the crater and peer into the ground, then return to your transport for the journey back to Naples. Your day trip ends around 5pm with a drop-off at the start point.
