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.

Wow, so much history and information! The trip up Mt Vesuvius is just a little too short. Just 1 hour and 15 minutes to climb up, take photos and get back. Quite a feat!!

We took our kids under the age of 12 and had a fantastic day. They loved peering into the volcano which I’m sure will be a memory for many years to come.

Excellent trip! FYI this trip requires a lot of walking! Pompeii tour guide was excellent! Mt. Vesuvius was self serve. Pompeii was amazing to see! Tour guide was great and very explanatory and took care of us well. Lunch was good, a simple restaurant with drinks and choice of lunch pizza, spaghetti or macaroni. My husband had the pizza, compared to the other pizza we've had on the trip it wasn't the best but it was good. I had the spaghetti which i enjoyed more. Then we headed in a bus to Vesuvius, where we were let free to climb the mountain. Truth to be told, it was a hard and long hike! But something that I can say I did and saw. Definitely not suitable for the elderly, walking/breathing problems or kids, but never the less we still saw all of the above hiking it. I unfortunately got a little sick from the heat and got a little nauseous on the way up the mountain which is very curvy!! But glad we did it. Very good trips, average lunch, lots of walking.

Excellent tour! We were picked up near where we were staying, and took a ride to Pompeii in a large, comfortable van. The tour of Pompeii was very good. Enza was a great tour guide. After that, we had to split into different groups. They took us to a nice restaurant for lunch, then took us on our way to Mt. Vesuvius. Loradena was very informative and the driver navigated the very twisty, narrow roads excellently. The hike to the top was well worth it, too. Overall a great experience.

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.
