Squeeze a trip to Pompeii into your Rome vacation, and discover its world-famous archaeological digs on an express half-day trip. After leaving the capital via a fast train to Naples, jump on a coach to Pompeii. Once there, spend two hours at the UNESCO-listed site, and learn about the volcanic eruption that buried — and preserved — Pompeii for centuries.

You wouldn't think that this would be a worthwhile length of time for a tour to Pompeii. But it is. You meet your guide outside the Rome Termini station and the trip is explained and you are guided onto the train. The very high speed train, which only takes 70 minutes to take you to Naples, where you are met by another guide and taken to a bus to Pompeii, then introduced to an onsite guide who takes you round Pompeii for two hours. Then you get time to eat and buy souvenirs and then you are taken back to the bus and back to Naples where you are put on the train back to Rome. Unless you are a student particularly studying Pompeii in which case you would be staying there this is a fine tour. Take water and sunscreen and a hat.

The instructions on where to meet were a bit confusing for us and our Uber Driver did not drop us off at the proper meeting place. After several phone calls, we finally met the group....but it was extremely stressful. Other than that, the tour was great. The train ride and bus ride were so worth it getting from Rome to Pompeii. And the tour was perfect. I wish we could have spent more time there but I believe we saw the highlights. It was summer time so the crowds were crazy. And it was extremely hot. If you go in August, I suggest you bring a hat and lots of water. At the end of the tour, we were given free time. My family enjoyed lunch at the restaurant at the enterance. Perfect amount of time.

Really enjoyed this tour. The train ride was smooth and comfortable. The Pompeii tour was outstanding. The tour guide had us all wear headsets so we could all hear him perfectly. He was very knowledgeable and really made Pompeii come alive. We returned to Rome in time to get on the hop on hop off bus right at the train station and tour around the city.

In spite of the heat, perhaps one of the best days we had in Italy. Having no preconceived notions, we found the experience fascinating. There was so much to learn and the material was presented in such a way that everyone in the small group was interested.

This tour was very exciting, informative, and personal. We had an AMAZING time with our guide and truly learned a lot from our experience. I would recommend this tour and this guide to anyone who plans to travel to this area of Europe. The tour was well-worth the money, and I will definitely book this tour or a similar tour the next time I travel!

We were met at Termini Station and given our tickets for the high speed train to Naples. Once in Naples, we were met and driven to Pompeii. The guide there was extremely good. She knew her stuff very well and answered all questions asked. The route we went on was different than I had done before so there was new stuff to see. It included a nice mix of residential, commercial and public buildings so we got a good idea of the town and how it functioned. The guide gave us a lot of insight into how the people lived.
Following the tour, we were driven back to Naples for our return trip to Rome. Overall, it was a great tour and I would highly recommend it.
