Overview

Get the most from a day in Naples with a tour that covers off Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius, with wine tastings and lunch in between. Enjoy a skip-the-line guided tour of Pompeii, exploring highlights including the Forum, houses, and baths. Then, visit a winery on Mt. Vesuvius for six wine tastings and a Neapolitan lunch before driving higher to gaze into the crater. Air-conditioned coach transport, entrance fees, lunch, and wine tastings included.
  • Full-day trip to Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius from Naples
  • Bypass the main lines on a tour of UNESCO-listed Pompeii, with skip-the-line access
  • View the highlights, including the Forum, houses and plaster death casts with a guide
  • Visit a winery on Mt. Vesuvius for six wine tastings and a 3-course lunch
  • Drive up Vesuvius and hike to the summit to gaze at the crater and bird’s-eye views
  • Round-trip transport by air-conditioned coach from central Naples
  • Lunch, wine tastings, and all entrance fees included
Leave central Naples by air-conditioned coach, and travel south to the archaeological site of Pompeii. Enjoy views over the Bay of Naples on route, and hear fascinating facts about the fateful day in 79 AD when Mt. Vesuvius erupted and covered the Roman port of Pompeii in ash and rubble.
On arrival, use your pre-booked ticket to bypass the main admission lines, and join up with a local guide to explore the UNESCO-listed ruins, frozen in time by the ash.
Set off on a walking tour of Pompeii’s highlights, seeing the still-intact houses with porticoes, mosaics, and frescoes; and the remains of the Forum, baths and gymnasium, and streets, still worn with grooves from chariot wheels. Stop, too, to see the plaster death casts that capture their victims’ last moments as the ash rained down.
After your visit, continue to Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano whose eruption destroyed the town. Drive up through the pine-forested and vine-coated slopes, and visit the volcano’s best-known winery. Meet your wine host, and take a tour of the vineyards and cellar to learn about the grapes grown here, and the winemaking process.
Take a seat to taste six delicious varieties of the wines, and then enjoy a mouth-watering 3-course lunch of Neapolitan favorites, including cured meats, pasta with local Piennolo heirloom tomatoes, cheeses, and a scrumptious pastiera napoletana (pastry tart made with ricotta cheese and fruit) for dessert.
Duly refreshed, ascend further and hop outside to take a 20-minute hike to Vesuvius’ summit. At the top, gaze down into the massive crater and marvel at the bird’s-eye views down over Naples, the Bay of Naples, and island of Capri.
Afterward, relax on your coach ride back to Naples where your tour ends at the original starting point.

Pompeii was amazing. The guides were great. The only thing that was disappointing, was we were unable to go to Mt. Vesuvius and as a filler, you added the archaeological museum and just dropped us off at 2 p.m. when we weren't supposed to return until 5:30!I feel we were shorted, plus no guide for what was suppose to be guided. We should have been given an option or compensated and returned to original pickup place. instead, we had to take the Metro!

Chez (spelling ?) was very pleasant and helpful. Going to Mount Vesuvius first in the morning was brilliant because the weather was a little cooler. The walk was challenging but he told us that before we started. Lunch was really nice at a local winery. The wine pairing with each course was a nice touch. That afternoon we went to Pompei and was educated by a wonderful, interesting guide named Bernadette (I think). She was a wealth of information. We loved it.

The Pompeii tour was amazing and very informative. It involves a bit of walking but very much worth it. Mt. Vesuvius tour was a little disappointing, but not due to the tour company. An unforseen natural event took place and was not able to fully view the volcano. Lunch and wine tasting, however, was simple splendid. We especially enjoyed the wine tasting.

The main reason I chose this tour was for the winery on Mt Vesuvius and it did not disappoint. The winery was beautiful with the mountain rising in the background and the wine tasted really interesting no surprises that it's from a volcano area. The lunch was also superb - a three course meal with wine served throughout.

The tour guides were also a lot of fun, particularly our guide on the coach and our guide in Pompeii. Both were very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour. They made the tour a lot of fun and very interesting.

It was a nice touch to have a glass of wine from the winery at the top of Mt Vesuvius! It was well deserved after a tough climb in the heat/direct sun.

Left from the Naples train station, easy to find meeting point. Pompeii was just amazing and we had such a great guide. I don't have his name but he was the cutest ,older gentleman, highly educated and informed on Pompeii, and had jokes for us all! I believe he was born and raised in Pompeii which gave him a difference perspective I believe. The winery was nice with lunch. Not much wine given for the tastings but wasn't a big deal. Mt. Vesuvius was interesting and I recommend walking to the top to see not only what the crater looks like but the views. We had a great day and came away feeling way more educated on this area!

This tour was an incredible experience! Our group consisted of only 3 people and our guide, Cesare. Starting at the Starhotels Terminus, our driver, Pasquale, safely brought us in a private car to Pompeii 15-20 minutes and heard some interesting facts about Naples, Pompeii, and Vesuvius. When we arrived in Pompeii, we met our personal guide, Giorgio, who showed us through a section of Pompeii you would need several days to see everything. Giorgio was amazing and set himself apart from other tour guides as we went to areas where larger groups could not go as he shared interesting facts about Pompeii and the innovative Romans. At the end of the tour, Cesare picked us up and showed us a cammeo shop where we got to see an artist making cammeos by hand. After a brief period of free time where you can taste limoncello and browse surrounding stalls be careful of the aggressive sales tactics of the merchants on the street, Cesare/Pasquale took us to Cantina del Vesuvio where we got a short tour of the winery followed by wine tasting and lunch. The food, wine, and view of Mt. Vesuvius alone was worth the price of the entire tour! Following lunch, Cesare/Pasquale took us to the highest point on Mt. Vesuvius where vehicles can go before allowing us plenty of time to hike to the summit for a breathtaking view of the Bay of Naples!

Césare was awesome. Very knowledgeable about the entire region, from ancient times through to the present. The tours themselves were really cool as well. Food/wine at lunch were stellar. Vincenzo, the local guide at Pompeii was great. Overall, totally worth it if you've got a free day in Naples

My husband and loved this day trip the best. We enjoyed it so much! Great tour guides, very informative, funny and they made everything easy to understand. Pompeii was beautiful, we had the best tour guide who really knew his stuff. The lunch and wine was AMAZING By far our favorite Italian meal of our entire trip. Climbing Mt. Vesuvius was truly amazing, a bit of hard work can really pay off! Wonderful day overall, I highly recommend!
