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.

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.

What an exhausting but amazing day. The guide was very knowledgeable of Pompeii and it would have just looked like ruins without her directing us. Lunch was good and a welcome break from the walking.
Mt Versuvius was stunning and worth the hike to the top for the views.
A wonderful trip, good guide. Pity about the time taken for hotel drop offs before we could get back to the ship.

The Pompeii tour guide, Lisa, was the most informative, knowledgeable, humorous and sensitive guide I have experienced. Her explanations were outstanding and relevant and greatly added to the overall experience of being at Pompeii for our first time
Maria was also very helpful in her duties and greatly added to our overall, positive and enjoyable experience.

We were able to see and learn a great deal about Pompeii on this tour. We were picked up right outside the cruise ship and were on our way. It's a much smaller tour than those operated by the cruise line, so it felt more personal and informative. Hiking Vesuvius was a blast. Beautiful scenery all around.
