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.

Great tour! Got picked up from our hotel and the trip was convenient and comfortable. The tour guide in Pompeii was also very helpful. The place is massive but we got to see the important parts of Pompeii without wasting time looking for them. Lunch was so so but at least it was taken cared of.

Pompeii is an absolute must-see in Italy. The Naples component is more of a drive-through of the city before lunch, not much to see. This leaves plenty of time in Pompeii, thoroughly guided and very informative.

Great way to spend the day. Was able to see both Naples via bus and Pompei

Pompei was spectacular. After studying this in world history and be able to walk the acient streets was amazing.

Loved the Naples/Pompeii day trip. So nice to relax and enjoy the sites without having to worry about driving, traffic etc. Touring around Naples was good, but the real treasure was exploring Pompeii. The guides were very knowledgeable and gave us a clear picture of life in Pompeii many years ago. Lunch was excellent and filling! Would highly recommend.
