Know More about this tour

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 groups pre-ordered tickets and lead you on a 2-hour walking tour of the fascinating grounds. Witness the destruction first-hand as you visit Pompeiis 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.
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), youll 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.

  • Excellent tour.

  • Pompeii and Vesuvius are well worth it, but we were rushed in both places. We ended up going back to Pompeii the next day on our own to see more. All of the guides were very friendly.

  • Excellent day definitely worth the money!

  • I thoroughly enjoyed the Pompeii tour, we were picked up on time from our hotel with no issue and taken to the site. We were warned when we got there that to see the entire city it would take roughly 10 days, but they made sure to include plenty of information and our tour guide had a great sense of humour and was full of knowledge.

    Our only let down was the walk up Mt Vesuvius, once we got off the bus we were told to meet back at the bus a couple of hours later and then that was it. Unfortunately we were not given any information about the volcano and once we got to the top it was time to quickly rush back down before everyone left.
    All in all, the tour was great value for money I only wish that the hike was part of a group tour and wasn't so rushed.

  • I highly recommend this tour!!!!! It was awesome!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Absolutely amazing! Pompeii is a must! And mount vesuvius has breathtaking views. I highly recommend this trip.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • I enjoyed both Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius. I didn't like having to rush: a little more time could have been given both after the visit to the ruins, to buy some souvenirs, and for the climbing, as one hour and a half to ascend the volcano and go down requires being quite well trained and there isn't almost any time to take some photos.
    All things considered, I wouldn't say it was very good value for money.

  • Well organised, very interesting and educational. Our guides and drivers were excellent and very knowledgeable. Pompeii is fascinating and a hugely popular visitor attraction so was very busy but we still saw and learned a great deal. Lunch was at a family run restaurant recommended by the guides - the food was freshly cooked and tasty. Our guide told us many interesting facts on the minibus journey to Mount Vesuvius and the walk up to the summit was well worth the effort although it was steep - the views from the top across the whole of the bay of Naples were amazing. Really enjoyable day.
