It's a journey loaded with arresting sights, including the enchanting medieval villages of Castelli Romani and the distinctive outline of Mt Vesuvius. Your guide gives you a thorough overview of ancient Pompeii.
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.

Fabulous! Guide was interesting and informative. Only downside was that we needed more time there.
Awesome tour!!! Great introduction to Pompeii. We really enjoyed the ancient Pompeii history and ruins. The guide did a great job narrating the sights around us. We were able to visualize the people back during those times how they lived and what they must have went through when the volcano erupted!!! We took some great photos.
This was a wonderful tour, it is a long trip to Naples 3 hours but the bus does stop halfway to break up the journey. Our visit to Naples was cut short because of the coach breaking down, but we had the added excitement of a train journey instead. Pompeii was wonderful and the two guides Sylvia and Guido were approachable, knowledgeable and fun, a lunch was included
It could've not been better then this. I reached Rome by night and tour was early morning. My first ever with family and my two sons are just 3 years and 1.5 years old. I had many confusions regarding language and routine issues as with everyone having kids. BUT what a fantastic trip it was. I was surprised by friendly gesture of our guide and the way she took care of every aspect. So much so my elder son kept her hand in hand and roamed around Pompeii. The other guide who took us through Pompeii ruins was a PERSONALITY! to me he seemed more like a director of some movie. The way he talked, the way he briefed and they way he conducted it was like as if I was with some director of movie who was explaining every minor detail. Hats Off to both guides and hats off to the management. For a single second I did not feel that I was new there or if I had a problem. I enjoyed every moment of the trip. I recommend it to anyone who is visiting Rome to take this tour and If someone really needs to know what Pompeii is then one must go for it.
We enjoyed this tour tremendously. Our guide was knowledgable. Highly recommend
Great tour and guides were excellent!!
Visit to a cameo factory was also included.
Trip was fantastic and the guides were friendly and knowledgable, but the office staff for green line tours were rude and unhelpful. Arrived at the closes train station and called the office for direction and the office staff said I don't know exactly where you are
Awesome experience. Great tour guide. Lunch was delicious.
a long day but thoroughly enjoyable. The guides were friendly, smiling and very knowledgeable about their subject enthusiastic too. I would recommend this trip to anyone wanting a worthwhile trip.
