Naples Shore Excursion: Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii Day Trip from Naples

Naples Shore Excursion: Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii Day Trip from Naples

Begin your day trip with pickup from your cruise port in Naples, where you'll meet your guide and travel to the UNESCO-listed ruins of Pompeii.

Upon arriving, embark on a 2-hour guided tour through the impressive archaeological site, with stops at Vetti’s House, the Thermal Baths, the Lupanare brothel and the Forum, each buried by volcanic ash during Mt Vesuvius’ eruption in 79 AD. As you go, hear the history of each site, as well as the full story behind the fateful day almost two thousand years ago when the prosperous city was destroyed.

Afterward, relax with a complimentary pizza lunch, accompanied by a drink. Refueled, hop aboard your coach to Mt. Vesuvius for a 45-minute climb to the summit with your guide. Soak up panoramic views of the Bay of Naples from the top, and walk around the crater at 3,900 feet (1,200 meters). Don’t be surprised if you see plumes of steam issuing from the sleeping volcano as you peer down into its depths.

Your day trip will conclude with transportation back to your original departure point.

Great and efficient tour. We had two different tour guides one for Pompeii and one for Mt Vesuvius both were very friendly and knowledgeable. The pizza was tasty and the tours were pleasant.

Amazing tour. The guide for Pompeii was excellent and knowledgeable. Lunch was very good. the walk up Mt Vesuvius was difficult if not in shape. The path was rocky with loose gravel and there is a temperature change. The view is worth the hike.

We had a great tour and would highly recommend it to anyone who wanted a quick into to Pompeii and Vesuvius. The guide was great and we were really lucky with weather. We had a very limited timeframe as we weer only in Naples for a day so this was perfect.

Miguel was one of a kind!

Viator you guys simply nailed it. Listening to Miguel while we were walking on the roads of Pompeii was like being part of a movie. Gee, it was like he was living there 2000 years ago. He was so precise when telling us every single detail about the walls, people, culture, sculptures and paintings, that we got that weird feeling of being transported on time machine.

Thanks Viator and Miguel for such lovely experience.
