Pass By: City Wonders, Imlil Imlil, 00100 Rome Italy

Location

Stop At: Pompeii Archaeological Park, Porta Marina (via Villa dei Misteri), 80045 Pompeii Italy

The eruption in AD 79 spelled a fiery end for Pompeii, but the catastrophe also almost perfectly preserved the port city under layers of Volcanic ash. Thousands of years later, you can still explore the eerie streets and step inside homes, bathhouses and fast food places, as the licensed guide paints a vivid picture of life in the city’s final days.

You’ll travel from Rome to Pompeii in an air-conditioned private coach, accompanied and entertained all the way by your expert tour co-ordinator. Skip the line at Pompeii as one of the site’s own officially licensed guides will show you around the city, painting a vivid picture of life in final days before the eruption. Throughout the ruins, you’ll come across harrowing death casts: plaster recreations of unfortunate citizens preserved by the superheated volcanic ash.

In addition to the guided portion of your tour, you’ll have time for wandering and picture-taking in Pompeii – followed by an authentic Neapolitan pizza lunch.


Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Vesuvius National Park, Via Palazzo del Principe, 80044 Ottaviano Italy

It’s a short coach ride from Pompeii to the foot of the volcano that still looms above it. A half-mile hike from the parking lot takes you right to the sometimes still-steaming crater of Mt. Vesuvius – still perhaps the most dangerous volcano in the world. Stand at the epicentre of that ancient disaster and feel awe at the utter devastation it must have caused, to blast an entire city off the map for millennia. Then turn and enjoy the contrast: the crater offers the most stunning view of the sun-drenched Bay of Naples.

In the winter months, when Vesuvius is closed for hiking, the tour travels from Pompeii to Naples, with panoramic views of the volcano and historical commentary from your tour co-ordinator along the way. You’ll have ample free time to explore Naples – a city as vibrant and alive as Pompeii is quiet and affecting – before the comfortable coach returns you to Rome.

Duration: 2 hours

Simply amazing!! Angela was very knowledgeable, and served as the perfect travel guide from Rome to Pompeii. My young daughters enjoyed the interactions with her, and they were engage most of the day. I have to say this tour was absolutely amazing, my girls were disappointed to realize that we didn’t have a tour booked the next day. There were short stops, and it was a perfect first trip to Naples, and Pompeii. Certainly made us want to spend more time in the south, and hopeful figure out how to travel again with Angela who is full of cultural information, and some amazing historical insights, and some funny Italian insights.

Our guide, Angela, was absolutely amazing. Super friendly and knew about literally everything. She was really enthousiastic and you could really notice that. We had a great day in Napels and it was fantastic! We saw lots of places and then drove to Pompeii. Our guide there was also amazing. You could ask him whatever question and he knew the answer. The day of this tour must have been out best day ever during the vacation. I definitely recommend you taking this trip if you visit Rome. This place HAS to be on your bucketlist!

A perfect day. Giacomo was our tour guide for most of the trip and he was utterly delightful -- so charming, funny and informative. We had a great time on the bus trip and the pizza was great! Then in Pompeii itself, our guide, Enrico, was really great, showing us the amazing archeological site. Pompeii does not disappoint. On the way back to Rome, Giacomo regaled us with stories and gave some really good advice about great stuff to see and do in Rome. If you can, you must go on this trip. It's a great augmentation to a visit in Rome because you get a sense of the Neopolitan and -- of course -- Pompeii.

The visit to the Pompeii ruins was one for the books. Our visit to Naples was short but equally memorable. We thank our tour guide, Matteo, who was very good and accommodating. We likewise express our gratitude to our local tour guide in Pompeii, Enrico, who was funny and very good.

We recommend this tour.
