What You Can Expect

Naples and Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Admire views of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius

Begin your Rome to Naples day trip with a pickup from your hotel. Or, simply meet your guide near Rome Termini station. Once aboard your coach, relax on the journey south to the Campania region and look out for sights such as the Abbey of Montecassino. The Benedictine monastery is a dramatic sight, perched on top of a hill in the rocky Castelli Romani area.

After three hours on the road, arrive in the Campania capital of Naples, and see its sights from the comfort of your coach. Take in views of the coast as you pass along the road from Mergellina Port to the fishing district of Santa Lucia. Then, stretch your legs with a photo stop by the medieval seaside fort of Castel dell’Ovo.

Work your way into Naples’ historic center for a look at Piazza del Plebiscito and its fine collection of monuments. Hear snippets of history about Naples Royal Palace (aka Palacio Real), the three Bourbon palaces and the Basilica of San Francesco di Paola — a church with attention-grabbing colonnades. Other Naples attractions seen include Castel Nuovo, Galleria Umberto I and Teatro di San Carlo.

Leave the city by coach and travel further south toward Mt Vesuvius. Pass towns such as Ercolano — home to the ancient site of Herculaneum — as well as Torre del Greco and Torre Annunziata. Stop in Pompeii for lunch at a local restaurant, and then visit Pompeii’s UNESCO-listed ruins on a 2-hour tour.

Hear how the city lay buried under a sea of volcanic ash from Mt Vesuvius as you admire the excavations of monuments such as the 5,000-seater Teatro Grande.

Finally, return to your coach and relax on your journey back to Rome. Your tour finishes with a drop-off in Rome.

Visiting the ruins of Pompeii was a fantastic experience - it was so interesting to walk down those streets, having learned about what happened there in school. It was really something to actually experience being there.

The Naples portion of the tour was largely driving the bus through various parts of the city and listening to commentary, but that was fine by me - it did not really look like much to see if I am being honest. Just a little something extra on the way to Pompeii.

We highly recommend this tour for a once in a lifetime experience! History comes to life on this tour.

Sylvia was awesome. The trip is a must for first timers with limited days. Great relaxing bus and driver was very professional. My parents 70s had a great time it was a perfect pace for them as well. Lunch stop was also delicious.

GLT delivers on it and #39;s promise. Drove us back and forth from Rome to Naples and Pompeii safely and comfortably. English speaking tour guide in the Pompeii ruins was excellent. Customer service was excellent too.

The tour itself was awesome. Our onsite tour guide at Pompeii was very knowledgeable. However, Greenline Tour company fulfilled the tour and did not provide heat on the bus. I reported this to Viator and they handled it appropriately. Try and do a tour with Viator that doesn't involve Greenline and NEVER book a tour with Greenline directly.

Great tour, lovely food and a very knowledgeable host. Beware of the bendy rounds in the hills, I felt quite sick. Worth it for the views. Shame you can and #39;t pick your tour mates, experience was somewhat dampened by an incredibly rude American lady. Be polite to your fellows people.
