What You Can Expect

Naples City and Pompeii Half Day Sightseeing Tour

Explore the ancient ruins of Pompeii

Begin your trip at your selected departure point, either at your Naples hotel or the Naples train station. Then, hit the streets for a 2-hour coach tour of the vibrant southern city. Pass through the main square of Piazza del Plebiscito to see San Francesco di Paola church and admire the medieval Castel Nuovo, one of the city's major architectural landmarks.

Explore the Royal Palace of Naples on foot, home to the Bourbon Kings in the 18th and 19th centuries. Then step inside the Naples Cathedral and hear the fascinating story behind the miracle of the blood, where a vial from the city's patron saint is brought out twice a year. Top off your city tour with a visit to the Posillipo quarter, gazing out at the Bay of Naples.

Hop back aboard your coach and relax on the brief ride along the coast toward Pompeii. Enjoy a break to purchase lunch before beginning your guided tour around the largest archaeological site in Europe.

See Vetti's House, the Thermal Baths, the Forum and the Lupanare brothel, all buried by volcanic ash, and learn more about how this ancient city was destroyed by the infamous Mt Vesuvius eruption in 79 AD.

After two hours wandering the ruins with your guide, your tour will conclude with transportation back to Naples.

For us this Pompeii tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy, and we highly recommend it. It was fascinating to glimpse the life of this once-thriving city now in ruins with views of Mt. Vesuvius in the background, and our tour guide was excellent.

Our tour guide was fantastic. She was an expert and one of the best. Unfortunately I can not remember her name, i think it was Elisa or Eloisa and she was multilingual and very intelligent.

We had a woderful day. Our guide Elisa was excellent.
After a Naples city tour including stops at the Duomo and a high view point which was amazing, we went to Pompei.
Our walking tour in Pompei was very informative and we saw this important ancient site of the Roman period.
Thanks a lot...

We loved our tour guide, I think her name was Leeza or Eliza sorry that I forgot. She was fabulous and spoke at least 5 languages on our tour. We had a small tour of just 8 people. We toured Naples first and since she was a local, she was so knowledgeable. Then we went to Pompeii. I was glad we did not go in the hot summer busy season. She looked after us so well we loved it.
