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.

Great tour! Excellent value for money. Hotel pick up and guided tour through the highlights if Pompeii. Enjoyable pizza lunch fills you up for a reasonable hike up the mountain. Go on a clear day so you can see the view.

Maria was amazing for the Pompeii part of the tour, her knowledge was wonderful and she made the past come alive for us even though there was a torrential downpour of rain but at least we saw how the drainage worked. Unfortunately the Vesuvius tour was cancelled due to low cloud cover

This was a great tour! Francesca was a great guide and made the tour fun and memorable. My boyfriend and I liked how it was split up into three parts: Pompeii, the lunch, and the hike. A great way to spend the day and an easy way to see the sights. Would definitely recommend!

This was an excellent tour. Maria was a brilliant guide around pompeii and really made it a memorable experience. The lunch was very average but to be expected from an all inclusive trip such as this.

Francesca our guide for Pompei was amazing, her English was spot on and she made the tour really interesting and informative but funny at the same time! Not just reeling off facts which kept me and my partner engaged. Lunch was excellent, one of the best pizzas we had whilst on our trip and free drink selection was good. Mount Vesuvius was a trek in the heat and I wished we had brought proper walking shoes as our trainers were not cutting it on the gravel. Overall well worth the money and would recommend to anyone

Pickup and drop off was smooth and in an air conditioned car. The pompeii tour was great, francesca was our tour guide and was really informative, making you imagine how it had been. Our tour had a about 14 people on it. We could go into some of the smaller spaces e.g. The theatre due to coronavirus restrictions. The pizza for lunch was huge so we were all full. There was no tour for Mount vesuvius, you walk up yourself while the bus waits. This was fine as it was nice to take it at your own pace (it is quite a climb!) good views at the top. Would recommend!

Great English speaking tour of Pompeii by Francesca. During the two hour tour we saw the highlights. Very interesting and super photo opportunities. Long line for entry but Francesca got us through fine. Very nice lunch of margarita pizza and choice of drink at a local restaurant. In the afternoon we had time to walk up to and around Vesuvius. It was spectacular!

Brilliant day exploring Pompeii and Vesuvius

Visiting these were top if our list to do in when visiting Naples. Checking on line, this trip was as by far the best for the price and with great reviews. The trip exceeded our expectations. From the communication about our pickup from hotel to when we were dropped back at the end of the day, it was all very professional, informative and fun. The knowledge of our guide in Pompeii really helped us imagine the ancient city in all its prior grandeur. Lunch was a tasty and fresh local pizza after which we headed to Vesuvius. The climb from the carpark certainly worked off lunch and once at the top the views are absolutely amazing. Would highly recommend this trip.

It was a very wet day and when we were picked up we were warned that the Vesuvius trip might not happen due to this. Therefore we weren't surprised when that happened. We were told to email to get that part refunded. The Pompei part was very good. Our guide had good knowledge of the site and the history surrounding it and was able to conjure up what we would have seen in the days before the eruption.
