Your day trip starts as you board your coach or minibus in central Rome for the 3.5-hour drive to Pompeii, one of the world’s most fascinating archaeological sites—a city frozen in a time capsule. An onboard host is available to answer any questions during the journey. You will be learning about Pompeii, which was destroyed by heavy volcanic ash in 79 AD when Mt Vesuvius erupted, killing the residents of the city.

When you arrive, you are free to explore own your own until it’s time to return to Rome. Stroll down the ancient lanes, imagining what life was like here 2,000 years ago. Pass the limestone columns still standing along Via degli Augustali, and check out artifacts and ruins from the forum, thermal baths, temple, theater and homes. All walking paths are marked with frescoes that depict scenes from daily life in Pompeii, which give context to what you’re seeing and help you find your way around.

Head back to your tour vehicle in the mid-afternoon for the drive back to Rome, where your day trip ends.

Optional excavations and tour upgrade:
When booking, you have the option to include access to the excavations of Pompeii and a 2-hour tour with an informative guide. This tour is limited to 25 people.

A budget-friendly excursion from Rome to Pompeii. To get the best out of the experience, I would definitely recommend the optional English-language guided tour -- important to know what you're looking at and any additional information. A good day trip.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and our tour guide.

We loved Pompeii but found the guided tour slow and lacking in information. The tour seemed unorganised and was unprofessional.

Claudia our guide on the bus was brilliant and had more interesting things to say than our location guide Vincent who was pretty basic unfortunately. After packing so much in to our travels it was so nice to hop on this bus to and from Pompeii without having to negotiate other methods of transport. Our 4 year old companion Alessio had a wonderful time too yes there was ice cream involved.

There is so much to see.

, Oct 2017

The bus itself was comfortable and air conditioned but there were no info books on the bus as advertised. Return time was changed so we got an hour less at Pompeii and the tour guide had no idea what Mount Vesuvius was and therefore couldn't advise us on how to get up the mountain.
