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 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.
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.

  • Unfortunately we didn't get to do the Vesuvius part of our tour due to fires on the volcano but were given the opportunity to visit Sorrento instead which was thoroughly enjoyed. Pompeii is a must see and having a tour guide to explain it all helped a lot. Very enjoyable tour!

  • Pompeii was great. Tour guide was good and informative. Sadly second part was not as paid for. We were informed that Mt Vesivius was under fire and that tours were not occurring. They offered a refund for the afternoon or a trip to Sorrento. We accepted the Sorrento trip which was decent they only gave us an hour, more free time would have been appreciated. However I found out 8 people from our group were allowed to go to Mt. Vesivius. When I inquired how those 8 people were allowed to go they lied and said they were on the same tour as everyone else. They were not and as I can speak Italian, I heard them speak about being able to take 8 people to Mt Vesuvius. They asked that group to keep quite about where they were going. I did not appreciate the lies and falseness of this organization and the scam they were pulling. I do not recommend this tour as they were a scam towards the tourists.

  • Wet cultural and interesting. A Naples must!

  • We've booked this tour willing to do both activities. Unfortunately, Mt Vesuvius was closed for visiting and we have done only the half day trip to Pompeii.
    The guide had told us that Mt Vesuvius was closed because of the fires at the beginning of the tour and had given the option to go to Sorrento instead of Mount Vesuvius, or, to change to the half day tour and return to Naples after visiting Pompeii and get the full reimbursement of the difference between the prices.
    My wife and I have chosen to change to the half day tour. Visiting Pompeii was great, we've got an excellent guide, Pompeii is beautiful, very interesting, and the sight of the Vesuvius from there is something unforgettable.
    There were just two disappointments:
    1 Not visiting Mt Vesuvius. Honestly, I don't know why Viator was selling this Day trip tour since the guide told us that it had been closed for already two weeks.
    2 Until now, we haven't seen any amount of the reimbursement promised by the guide from Project Napoli Service. So, I kindly ask Viator to check about this issue with the service supplier.

    Sincerely,

    Marcelo

  • We were picked up without any problem and brought to Pompeii where we met a bunch of other people who had come from Sorrento, and then split into groups based on languages. Our group was roughly 20 people, we were given headsets, our tour guide was good and quite knowledgable. Unfortunately a cruise ship was in town with like 600 people so it was incredibly busy. Also unfortunately there were surface fires on Mt Vesuvius so we were unable to do that part of the tour. We were given an option of either spending the rest of the day in Sorrento, then coming back to Naples, or of just coming back to Naples and being refunded part of the cost. As we were going to Sorrento the next day, we chose to head back to Naples. Not the tour's fault, but Mt Vesuvius was a big part of why we booked this tour.

  • The only thing I would change would be to have more time in Pompeii, seeing a few more things. When you look in the guide book and see what's in there, we only saw a fraction. Our guide was very knowledgeable, very enthusiastic and quite informative. The lunch was so-so, but likely to be expected. It filled our tummies in any case! The climb to Mt Vesuvius was great.Yes, it's slippery/a little dangerous for some and it was HOT in July, but well worth the effort.

  • Excellent tour of Pompeii. Mt Vesuvius was closed because of forest fires so instead we were taken to Sorrento. Lovely trip and the guides were great. The lunch provided wasn't amazing but it was nice to have something to eat.

  • Excellent tour! I highly recommend this tour! The tour guides were so helpful and approachable. Our trip to Mt Vesuvius got cancelled due to fires and the tour guides were able to change the tour to Sorrento which was amazing! They did such a great job adjusting on the fly! The pizza in Naples was delicious!

  • Sadly vesuvius was closed due to forest fires, but the trip to Pompeii was good but far to many people there, all on excursions, it was a bit manic. Our guide was very good.
    As we could not go to vesuvius they arranged for us to go to Sorrento which was great, although a bit quick!.
    Very efficient pick up and easy to find. Coach was on time. Overall a good day out

  • This tour was amazing!
