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.

Can and #39;t fault this. Arrangements worked perfectly. Tour guide we had at Pompei was fab. Despite having done it for 25 years she was obviously extremely knowledgeable, but still enthusiastic.
Actual tour guide was very sensitive to the fact that 16 of us were on cruise ships so had to be back on time.

Pompeii and Vesuvius well worth it, would recommend and have to all.
Pompeii guided tour a must Lucianna our tour guide all the history and story makes what you see come to life.
Mt Vesuvius a bit of a hike to the top, easy enough just pace your self.
There are places to stop on the way and enjoy the views whilst having a rest.
I grabbed a hiking stick from the vendor whom only asks for a donation on your return.
Have a glass of red at the top with your friends as a reward for your effort.
You wont be disappointed!

Well, I can't talk enough about tour. It was very well arranged. The tour guide for Pompeii could have been better with language English

A great trip taking in both Pompeii and Vesuvius in one day. The pick up arrangements were very well organised with good communications from the outset.
Our guide for Pompeii was friendly and informative showing us the highlights of this huge site in the two hours that we had there. A really good lunch was included at a restaurant near to Pompeii from where we were driven by coach to Vesuvius. We were dropped at the parking area about a mile from the crater and from there we continued on foot. Some of our group waited at the cafe as the climb is rather steep. We were very lucky to have clear skies and fantastic views across the Bay of Naples.... well worth the effort.
I would highly recommend this tour.
