Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your guide will collect you from your hotel or train station to kick off this Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii day trip from Naples. Venture into the ancient Roman city of Pompeii on a half-hour coach ride and learn the history behind the area that was infamously covered by ash nearly 2000 years ago. 

Follow your guide on a walking tour of this UNESCO World Heritage-listed site and learn about Europe’s largest archeological grounds. Stop at the Forum, Thermal Baths, Vetti’s House and the Lupanare brothel. Your guide will offer historical context and insight into local life here back in 79 AD. Once you’ve explored the grounds, savor an Italian pizza lunch with your group before enjoying time to wander the shops.

Afterward, travel by air-conditioned coach to Mt Vesuvius and journey on a moderate hike to the top of the active volcano with your guide. At the summit, some 3,900 feet (1,200 meters) above sea level, take in panoramic views of the Bay of Naples. Roam around the volcano's mammoth crater and keep an eye out for plumes of escaping steam. If you prefer to skip the hike, you'll enjoy free time while waiting for the group, but the trip to the top is definitely worth the effort.

After successfully climbing the top of Mt Vesuvius, relax with a ride back to your Naples hotel or back to the port in your comfortable coach.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Pompeii Archaeological Park
After pickup from your hotel or the Naples train station, take a 30-minute drive to Pompeii, an ancient Roman city that was entirely destroyed by the sudden eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD. The largest archaeological site in Europe, today Pompeii is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. When you arrive, your guide will pick up your group’s pre-ordered tickets and lead you on a 2-hour walking tour of the fascinating grounds. Witness the destruction first-hand as you visit Pompeii’s most famous sites, including the Forum, the Thermal Baths, Vetti's House and the Lupanare brothel, giving you a glimpse into daily life during the Pax Romana. Today you can see shapes of objects — even bodies — that were buried beneath the volcanic ash and pumice.
Duration: 2 hours 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Vesuvius National Park
After your tour, enjoy a pizza lunch with your group followed by some free time to browse the shops. Then board the coach and drive 40 minutes to legendary Mt Vesuvius. Embark on a moderate hike up the volcano with your guide. When you reach the summit at 3,900 feet (1,200 meters), you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the picturesque Bay of Naples from east to west. Peer down into the crater and see plumes of steam issuing from the sleeping, but still active, volcano! There is a rest point where you can choose to wait for your group if you do not wish to climb all the way to the top, but the hike is worth the effort. After your Mt Vesuvius hike, relax on the drive back to Naples in the early evening.

Tour Company Okay, But Location Not
marccullen

The tour itself was okay, and the tour guides were decent and helpful. But Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius have become tourist traps and overly commercialized. Most significant, when the ATM at the hotel there where we had free time tried to withdraw from my bank account without giving me money, and I reported it to the hotel manager, he refused to do anything about it, lied to me about the ATM at the hotel not being the hotel's responsibility and there being a number to call on the side of the machine (which there wasn't), and when I called him out on his lie, he issued a death threat to my wife and me. Needless to say, while not the fault of this tour company, I am not returning to Naples or Pompeii ever again, and I wouldn't recommend going there to anyone else, either.

Informative and interesting

We loved our day and having a tour guide made Pompeii much more fun and informative. You do not have time to see all main parts of Pompeii but it was enough. Vesuvius was a climb but worth it for views and seeing the steam rise from the crater! Unlike in other reviews there was no hanging around and a good pizza lunch.

My Day at Pompeii

This was a great excursion; well organized, informative and a terrific way to spend the day! The only glitch seemed to be at the end of our climb when we had to reorganize for drop-offs but it all worked out. The pizza or pasta options for lunch were abundant portions and very tasty. I’d highly recommend these tours.

I dont think the guide was particularly good. There was too much "free time" where we all stood around . Pompei is fascinating and the volcano was too.
