The Road to Pompeii is Smoother than Ever
We’ll set off from Termini Station, where your representative will take care of your high-speed train ticketing and seating arrangements. All you need to do is arrive on time, kick back in the air-conditioning and enjoy as the Italian countryside whisks by on your one-hour trip to Naples. Once you arrive, your dedicated guide will meet you (a benefit not included with many other tour providers) and escort the group via short private coach transfer to the world-famous ruins of Pompeii, and introduce you to your official expert English-speaking tour guide.
Marvels, Mosaics and the Macabre
A one-of-a-kind archeological marvel, Pompeii is a UNESCO World Heritage Site like no other. When Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, the once bustling city became buried in ash and pumice. The event was tragic but is now magic for tourists who want to see a perfectly preserved fossil record of ancient Roman life. You’ll walk the footsteps of aristocrats and commoners alike, learning how the classes lived and ultimately died, captured for eternity. Your expert local guide will provide an interactive and totally immersive educational experience. They’ll point out beautiful mosaics, fossilized remains, and hidden details of the famous ruins you would miss by going on your own.
Domus Among the Rocks – A New Experience
If you’ve traveled to Pompeii before, be prepared for a new experience not previously available. The homes of the ancient city’s most influential people, called Domus, have been newly opened to the public. This is your chance to see now the elite truly lived as you marvel at the colorful frescoes of animals, gods and landscapes, still adorning their once-expensive abodes.
Sip, Savor, Shop, then Set Off
Enjoy a short coffee break after your two-hour Pompeii experience or do some souvenir shopping as you browse the local shops. Then meet your driver who will take you back to Naples via private coach and on to your train back to Rome. Your tickets and seating will be arranged, ensuring a comfortable, easy and relaxing return trip with enough golden hours left to explore more of the Eternal City.
