Why Travelers Choose This Tour

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.

A Great Day tour to Pompeii Definitely a must see! The only thing i would say is that i wish we had more time to explore Pompeii we had a whole day trip from Rome , so we had a couple stops , one being in Naples, but we only had a few hours at the ruins of Pompeii and didn't get to see everything.

The green line tour guide that handled everything except Pompeii was good . Pompeii was an exceptional historic site and was very interesting. The tour guide thru Pompeii was awful. It was suppose to be an English tour but he spoke very poor English and then it was combined with Spanish which is what he used most of the time. not worth the cost it was a self tour so we were over charged

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.

Pompeii was amazing the tour experience was not. It is a bus tour through Napoli. The guide manager was difficult to understand in both english and spanish. During the bus tour they local guide would point out features, however, if you are not in the front of the bus you can not see what she is referring too. We were not given time to walk around Napoli. The lunch was a horrible experience. The guides even warned people not to order the fish. Service was slow. Once I received my food they were busing all the tables. The pizza was burnt and the dish was horrible. Majority of people left their plates. I had gone on several tours during this trip and I have never had a horrible experience like this.....Pompeii is amazing. The local guide did a good job showing us the site. I recommend seeing the archeological site. however, this tour combo...I would find another.

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.

The tour was not good , we went to Naples never left the bus, just drove around and then picked up another guide who was so anoying, we were taken to a Cameo Carving store , wasted one hour here. The restaurant for lunch was not good, a lot of people left the plates full since it was not good, when we finally got to Pompeii the guide wouldnt shut up, as soon as we went in the side I left the tour, I had been here before so I took my Grandson with me and walked were ever we wanted. This was the most terrible tour I have ever taken and at this vacation I did at least eight.

Great, knowledgeable guide, good lunch and amazing Pompeii. The only reason I have taken 2 stars off is the added tour of Naples. They just drove the bus through Naples without stopping anywhere which was a shame. Instead, they stopped at an useless factory where expensive ornaments are made out of seashells. Also it is better to sit on the right hand side of the bus to enjoy better views of Naples. Previously, we have taken a viator trip in UK to Stonehenge and Bath and liked it a lot.

Alternatively, one can take a direct train from Rome to Naples and another train from Naples to Pompeii. We did not want to do that because it would have been more hectic and would have required more planning. The ruined city of Pompeii is breathtaking and I think one should visit it at least once.

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.
