What You Can Expect

Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii Day Trip from Naples

Pompeii, Italy

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 2-hour 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 in your comfortable coach.

Ausflug hat sich sehr gelohnt! Pompeii mit gutem Guide, der vieles zu erzählen hatte. Auch der Aufstieg auf den Vesuv war klasse, auch wenn es schon anstregend war. Das inkludierte Mittagessen war zwar geschmacklich gut, aber man wurde schon sehr arg in kurzer Zeit durchgeschleust. Der einzige kleine Minuspunkt.

Excellent, well organised tour with easy door to door pick up/drop off transport from our central Naples hotel. Knowledgeable and friendly guides who made the tour fun and interesting.

Pompeii tour quite fast-paced for the heat of the day and how busy it was. DO NOT drink the water in Pompeii from the water taps within even though it states it is drinkable. Lunch is good with 3 choices, pizza, pasta or salad. Make sure you know what you want as the main lady serving was incredible aggressive if you ask any questions. An hour to get up Vesuvius 900m was enough time considering it was 35degrees but if you want to enjoy the view up the top, don't hang about half way. If you miss the bus, it will go without you

Great tour. The tour guides were very knowledgable and had a great sense of humour. The walk up Vesuvius is not too hard most able bodied people should have no issues. There are shops at the top to allow you to get water.

We had a great tour, thank you. Mt Vesuvius was a bit of a grind because of the heat, but you can't control that! Thank you.

Pompeii was much more meaningful with our very well informed guide Elisa. The tour was prompt and organized. The only hitch was our bus broke down on the way back from Mt. Vesuvius but they responded quickly with back up transportation.

Very good day trip, I and #39;d definitely recommend. The pompeii tour guide was fantastic - very informative whilst making it interesting and funny.
Vesuvius was good also although my boyfriend spent most of it trying to claim the Vesuvius pokemon gym.
