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.

Great tour, the climb up to Mt. Vesuvius is quite a challenge but worth the effort. The guide was very informative. Worth the cost

We opted for the pickup from hotel option and the operator was flexible and organized about the pickup location. The bus goes up to the parking spot halfway up Vesuvius and then one has to hike up the rest of the way for 20 minutes, which is moderately strenuous but quite fine. The lunch provided was pretty good, with the option of pizza or a pasta. Our only grouse was that Miguela our guide on the bus was a bit sloppy with the head count and went ahead to the restaurant without some of the group. We had to find the place ourselves. The Pompeii tour was very informative and we enjoyed it thoroughly. A very good tour overall.

To start with our guide for Pompeii was 40 forty! minutes late. Also during 2 hours tour we were mainly standing and did not walk around very much and therefore did not see a lot. The lunch was awful - huge restaurant where after 30-40 minutes waiting they through at your table either cheapest possible pizza or Bolognese no other choices. Our guides from Project Napoli Service were more interested in themselves and flirting with a driver than in us.
Mt Vesuvius crater was very interesting to see and definitely worth a little climb.
If you are luckier than we were with the tour guides and they change a restaurant for lunch the tour would be brilliant.

It was a great tour. We received the information about the exact time and place of the pick-up the day before in the evening as it was agreed upon booking. Our tour leader was lovely, and the expert guides on Mt. Vesuvius and in Pompeii were amazing. Lunch was also good, we all could choose between 3 different lunch options when we got to the restaurant. At Mt. Vesuvius we had 1 hour and 15 minutes of time to walk up this took about 15-20 min, listen to the guide and go back. We had bad weather so we didn't see the view of the Bay of Naples but it was still an amazing experience. Maybe half an hour more at the volcano would be better, just to have more time to take photos, but still, it was a great excursion. I would recommend it to everyone.

Pompeii was amazing and our guide Marie fantastic! We where passed off to Martina and Manuela for the second half of the tour. Lunch was awesome!!! Wish we had more time at Mt. Versuvius it's a rush to get to the top and back down in time for the bus, and I'm 30 lol.
