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.

Well organised, very interesting and educational. Our guides and drivers were excellent and very knowledgeable. Pompeii is fascinating and a hugely popular visitor attraction so was very busy but we still saw and learned a great deal. Lunch was at a family run restaurant recommended by the guides - the food was freshly cooked and tasty. Our guide told us many interesting facts on the minibus journey to Mount Vesuvius and the walk up to the summit was well worth the effort although it was steep - the views from the top across the whole of the bay of Naples were amazing. Really enjoyable day.

Maria was an awesome host, the Vezuvio is much colder than what we expected it to be really, even when the weather was 15 degrees in the city, it was below freezing up there, and the Pompeii tour was simply breathtaking!

This is magnificent. You do need to be fairly fit though to walk to the top, so take that in mind - its pretty steep and loose rocks make it a bit tricky if your not steady on your feet. I loved it and the view from the top is breathtaking. Highly recommend this tour option.

The tour was very well organized. The bus was on time and we were welcomed by very friendly tour guides. The bus drove us very safely to Pompeii and there we received a headset so we could hear the tour guide even if we were not directly in visible range or her. The guide was very informative and learned us a lot about the history in around two hours.
Afterwards, we had lunch at a restaurant which was quite okay, but nothing special. Next, we got back on the bus and drove up the Vesuvius. There we had about one hour and fifteen minutes to hike up approx 20mins is you have a good physical condition. At the top, there are gorgeous views of Napoli, Pompeii and of course the crater of the volcano. There are some shops to get souvenirs or a glass of local wine.
After the hike down the bus was waiting for us and drove us back to Napoli. All in all a very good day and totally worth the money, because everything fits together. It would be nearly impossible to see both sites in one day with public transport.
