Tour Description

Discover Pompeii and the still-active volcano, Mt. Vesuvius, that wiped out this once-bustling city on this exclusive day trip from Rome.

The Best of Pompeii for You

You'll explore the city of Pompeii with an expert, English-speaking guide who will perfect your time here. In an hour and a half, you’ll see the most fascinating sites in the city, from the immortalized bodies to the 2,000-year-old homes and buildings of Pompeii. It’s impossible to walk all of Pompeii in one day, but our carefully-planned route means you’ll see the best parts with the most representative and well-preserved buildings it has to offer.

With 25 people or less in each group and headsets for every visitor, your expert guide will be easy to hear and interact with. Like all tour operators, we use official, licensed Pompeii guides for this section of our tour. These guides are carefully chosen and evaluated by us to ensure the most perfect tour for our customers.

Scale Mt. Vesuvius

Another high point of our tour comes when we climb to the ridge of the crater of Mt. Vesuvius, one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world.* Lava flows have scarred the sides of the volcano and are visible on the winding road up to the top – where you will take in incredible views over the Bay of Naples and its islands below.

During the winter season (November 20th - March 31st) and on days when Mt. Vesuvius is closed due to weather conditions, your tour of the past will take you to the National Archaeological Museum of Naples instead. Here, you’ll see a fantastic array of artifacts, mosaics, statues, and artwork excavated from Pompeii and Herculaneum for the perfect way to complement a visit to the ruins.

Then Scale an Authentic Neapolitan Pizza

With transport to and from Rome on a comfortable, air-conditioned coach, an expert, English-speaking tour leader to accompany you for the day and traditional Neapolitan pizza lunch, we've taken everything into account so that you can relax for the day. A must-see, Pompeii is one of Italy’s most fascinating sights – a city that was buried for thousands of years, before being rediscovered 'frozen' in time.
