Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Discover the Ancient Ruins of 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.

Short but excellent time in Pompeii. Enough shade that even in 90 degree summer heat it was doable. The bay of Naples is beautiful. At the end of the day, a group spending the night in Sorrento departed on a separate van and we went back to the city. Wish I could have gone with them, haha. I wish the tour would stop for photo op with all of the sunflower fields you end up driving by. They offered drop offs on the way back which saved us metro fare. I appreciated it! We bought a much needed coffee at the early morning meeting spot. A long day but well worth it.

This tour was a great experience. The short tour through Napoli leaves us with the desire for more of it but the Pompei tour compensates all of it. We made several friends in the bus (recommended). Our Pompei guide was Nandio and though old he managed us very well and was fun and entertaining.

This was a great tour and the lunch was also great. I didn't like having to stop at the place to sell us alchohol and trinkets.

The trip to Naples and Pompeii was awesome. Our guide Teresa in Pompeii had a natural love and knowledge of Pompeii. We learned so many special things from her. Our stop at a Cameo making shop was wonderful too.
Definitely worth the time , the countryside going south from Rome was beautiful too.

Our guide Kristina, and driver John Franco were excellent as was local guide Guido. Pompeii is a must see if you are in the area. Imagine that 48 FEET of ash fell on the city in 150 SECONDS. Incredible. They have excavated over over 3,000 rooms over the last 300 years and are still digging. Absolutely incredible.

The Naples and Pompeii day trip was an excellent way to spend the day. The bus ride was comfortable and stopped for a breaks at right times. The guides were informative, enthusiastic and helpful. There were around 35 people on the tour. After a quick ride around the center of Naples, we headed for Pompeii for lunch which I enjoyed and sight-seeing. The guided tour around Pompeii lasted for a little over two hours. I realized after the tour that we had missed some interesting sights but then its a massive place. I think everybody dozed off on the bus on the way back to Rome. We were dropped off at the nearest stops from our hotels right on time for dinner.
