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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

The tour was amazing! Pompeii was so beautiful and it was great seeing the coast of Naples. My only complaint was that the pasta at lunch wasn't too great and the dessert was only some melons, which I don't eat. However, the main dish and the pizza was pretty good, so overall the lunch wasn't bad. However, the tour guides were extremely informative and taught us so much about the places we visited. Guido had some hilarious jokes as well! Seeing Mt. Vesuvius was also unreal! Highly recommend the tour.

One of the most interesting tours with viator. It is quite long but enriching! And the place is impressive. We were only annoyed by the heat in July. We thought the place would be cooler.

The guide who took us on the walking tours thru Pompeii was excellent! This was a fun trip for the kids as well, despite the heat.

This was an excellent and well organized tour. We had two excellent guides, Cristina on the bus and a local guide Giovanni for Naples and Pompei. Both of them did their best. It would've been be good to have some time to buy a few souvenirs. We didn't like the places where the bus stopped on the way to Naples and back. But still, it was a great trip.
