Overview

Discover the wonder of Europe’s only active volcano on this Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii day trip from Naples. Follow your local guide through the ancient ruins of this UNESCO World Heritage-listed city.

  • Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius day trip from Naples
  • Explore the fascinating ancient ruins of Pompeii with a guide
  • See the destruction of Mt Vesuvius' massive eruption thousands of years ago
  • Enjoy a pizza lunch with your fellow travelers
  • Hike to the summit of Mt Vesuvius and peer into the crater
  • Soak up views of the Bay of Naples from the volcano’s summit
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.

A good trip with an impressive guide around Pompeii.However; I would personally prefer to organise both trips myself, once based in Naples, as the weather conditions are paramount when visiting Mt. Vesuvius

Picked up promptly at the cruise dock by bus. Great visit in Pompeii with knowledgeable guide. Trip to Mt. Vesuvius was not possible because of a landslide blocking paths. Option was given to return with a refund for that portion or continue on to Sorrento after lunch. We chose this option and spent a great time there visiting shops and the coast.

This was a two part trip, first a visit to the ruins of Pompeii and then a close look at Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano which ruined Pompeii. The tour group size was around 40, but the large comfy coach ensured that the ride was smooth. After reaching Pompeii, an English speaking guide took over for a two hour walking tour and she did her best to bring history to life. During the walk the interesting points of the ruined city was touched upon and it was really informative. Then after lunch we proceeded to Mt. Vesuvius. The 30 minute trek to the top was tough walk but offered great views of the Bay of Naples. A peek into the crater shows fumes still coming out at places. Overall the day was long and tiring but informative and interesting as well.

The group size was too large that the audio sets kept cutting in and out depending on how far away from the group leader you are. Our tour guide was also very hard to understand as his English wasn’t as clear. Combining his hard to understand English and the audio sets cutting in and out due to the large group size, it was impossible to understan The group size was too large that the audio sets kept cutting in and out depending on how far away from the group leader you are.

Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius were a definite must see, but I would recommend going with a different tour company.

Our ship was late getting into the port. the tour company did not leave without us, they waited which was a big plus for all of us. the tour guide for Pomeii was excellent. the lunch was just ok. the bus ride to Vesuvius was interesting as there was some confusion__not sure what it was but we made it there and back in time for the ships departure.

Fascinating visit to this important sight. A lot of walking on irregular surfaces, but well worth it. Can be warm as little shade available.

The pick up and drop off from hotel were the best we had our whole vacation. Made the experience easy! Mt. Vesuvius was a little overrated and not worth the hike up. Pompeii was great and I wish I could have seen more. Retrospectively, I would have booked a longer Pompeii tour and skipped Vesuvius.
