What You Can Expect

Pompeii Day Trip from Rome

Walk up Mount Vesuvius on your day trip from Rome!

Hop aboard your coach at Piazza del Popolo in Rome, and travel south in air-conditioned comfort to Italy’s Campania region. As you travel, listen to tales about the colorful southern Italian area and Mt Vesuvius.

After the volcano’s infamous AD 79 eruption, lava and volcanic ash destroyed the cities of Herculaneum and Pompeii. Evidence of those ancient streams of lava is still evident in the area, and your guide will show them as you travel.

Step out of your coach for a steady-paced, 20-minute walk to Mt Vesuvius’ summit, from where the most breathtaking views await. Make your way over trails covered in pumice rock and ash, before some free time to gaze down into the caldera and across the Bay of Naples.

Walk back down with your guide, and then head into Naples for a lunch of traditional pizza. From Naples, journey further south to complete your day trip from Rome to Pompeii. Once a thriving Roman city; today the town is best known for its UNESCO-listed archaeological digs, which are home to a wealth of relics. See incredibly preserved fossils and other ruins, plus plaster imprints of the town’s victims who were buried for years.

See the remains of the Forum and Teatro Grande, were some 5,000 people could once be seated. From your Pompeii tour guide, hear about day-to-day life for the Pompeii locals as you wander streets where ancient shops, cafes and even brothels could be found.

Finally, head back to Rome by coach and finish with a drop-off at the start point.

Please note: Mt Vesuvius is inaccessible from November 16 – March 31. During this time, the hike is replaced with a walking tour of the National Archaeological Museum of Pompeii. The site is home to an array of relics, excavations and art from Pompeii.

Amazing tour of both Vesuvirus and Pompeii. Even though we were held up by traffic on the motorway, our wonderful guides were able to make up the time so that we got to see all of Pompeii. We also had time to climb to the top of Vesuvius to see the smoke coming out of the vents and the lovely Bay of Capri. Pompeii was astounding in revealing life so many years ago. It shouldn't be missed. All 3 of our guides were fantastic. They even stopped to talk to all of us on the ride back to Rome.

Melanie was a fantastic tour guide, and this was a fantastic tour! She was completely attentive to our needs, knew our names, provided a very personal experience. She was vastly knowledgeable and told great stories on a multitude of subjects. ONe of the best tour guides I've ever had, and I do A LOT of tours. Pompeii is simply amazing and a total must-see in Italy. Naples pizza is a favorite- get the magherita- and try the limoncello. Take this tour. You will not regret it.
