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.

Super tour of both Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius. The tour of Pompeii was comprehensive and the tour guide knew her information. I was pleased with the number of sites within Pompeii we were able to see/visit. The lunch was OK. The 2nd part of the tour to Mt. Vesuvius was breathtaking after you reached the top of the path to the volcano crater. The tough part was climbing the path to the top. My wife could not climb it and my heart was racing during the climb, but once I made it to the top, it was well worth it. Of course getting to the staging site for the climb was rather scary, as there were too many buses when we went and the buses trying to leave were often interfering with the buses going up. I would still recommend this particular tour. I checked off one of my bucket list wants on this one.

Extremely well informed guide Maria was attentive to us all and made sure we were all accounted for in the hoards of people at Pompeii and Vesuvius. The walking trip up the mountain was stressful for out of shapes but plenty of older, in shape folks were climbing. Suggest getting one or two walking sticks free with a tip at the end at the bottom to help with the loose footing.

Our Pompeii guide was very knowledgeable and thorough, and spoke excellent English. The trip up to the Mt. Vesuvius crater is a must-do if you're in the area. However, the lunch was very rushed and some people who received their lunch late wasn't able to finish.

Great tour, got too see alot of Pompeii, the tour went for over 2 hours and included a great sit down lunch. We then got to climb Mt Vesuvius which was a great experience, it was a cloudy and rainy day at the top of the Mt so we did not get to see much, however the experience was well worth it.
