Know More about this tour

Uncover the marvelously preserved ruins of the ancient city Pompeii on the only tour that combines an in-depth guided visit to this renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site, a trip up the volcano responsible for its very existence, and a delicious lunch of the region’s most cherished recipes paired with 6 superb locally produced wines. Your imagination and palate will delight on this thrilling day spent in the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius with expert local guides, great food and wine, as well as an itinerary that will take you to these acclaimed sights directly from the heart of Naples!         

Meet up with your expert local guide and hop aboard a comfortable private coach for the archaeological area of Pompeii. Your guide will share captivating stories and history behind the fateful day in 79 AD when Mt. Vesuvius exploded in one of the most catastrophic eruptions ever, covering the area in a thick layer of ash and rubble.

Once we get to Pompeii you’ll benefit from skip-the-line, pre-booked entry and the expertise of an official local guide, as you walk this former port resort’s main streets just as the ancient Romans did. The stones are still worn with tracks from the chariots that tread them nearly 2,000 years ago! We’ll visit the forum, the center of Pompeii’s political and social life, the startling plaster death casts of the victims of the violent eruption that destroyed the city, as well as take a look inside intact dwellings complete with their porticoes, mosaics and frescoes. The city’s baths and gymnasiums will also impress as you look across the millennia at a moment frozen in time forever.

After Pompeii, we’ll take you up the lush slopes of Mt. Vesuvius itself to meet its most famous wine producer for a tasting of 6 fantastic native varieties produced from the volcanic soil right beneath your feet! Enjoy an inviting 3-course lunch of some of the region’s most delectable culinary delights, including cheeses, cured meats, pasta with local ‘piennolo’ heirloom tomatoes and a mouthwatering ‘pastiera napoletana’ pastry dessert with ricotta cheese and fruit. Admire sweeping views from the terrace over the surrounding countryside, and visit the vineyards and cellar with a careful explanation of the grape varietals and each step in the winemaking process from the family that owns them.

From here we’ll finish our ascent to the edge of Mt. Vesuvius’s crater. Take the chance to look an active volcano in the face on the 20-minute hike where you’ll get to look inside the caldera and take in the most breathtaking panoramas of the day. You’ll see Naples, the bay and the island of Capri from a height of over 4,200 feet, as well as bask in the pristine nature that surrounds you.

Jump on your private coach again and enjoy the drive back to Naples as your guide winds down the day satisfying your every curiosity. This is Pompeii and Vesuvius as it is rarely experienced!

  • it was a fabulous experience

  • Césare was awesome. Very knowledgeable about the entire region, from ancient times through to the present. The tours themselves were really cool as well. Food/wine at lunch were stellar. Vincenzo, the local guide at Pompeii was great. Overall, totally worth it if you've got a free day in Naples

  • My husband and loved this day trip the best. We enjoyed it so much! Great tour guides, very informative, funny and they made everything easy to understand. Pompeii was beautiful, we had the best tour guide who really knew his stuff. The lunch and wine was AMAZING By far our favorite Italian meal of our entire trip. Climbing Mt. Vesuvius was truly amazing, a bit of hard work can really pay off! Wonderful day overall, I highly recommend!

  • Amazing tour! I rarely take tours. As an older solo traveler, it felt hard to figure out how to do Pompeii and Vesuvius in a day's time so signed up at the last minute for this tour. While I was less interested in the wine tasting, it was part of the deal. And it and the accompanying lunch were terrific. We had a wonderful guide, Claudio. Also a great guide for Pompeii who took us to what are probably the best- preserved areas. I could have gone with another hour there. And at Vesuvius, a volcanologist talked with us, and we got to walk around the crater! Everyone's specialty was amazing! I learned a lot. Oh! And to top it off, we were a group of just twelve! Terrific day all around.

  • A really great tour, well organised, the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, and the local guides we had in Pompeii and Vesuvius were excellent. The lunch was delicious and plenty of it. We got a tour of the vineyard but I would have liked to have known more about how they make the wine.

  • This was one of the absolute best trips I have booked with Viator! Thank you so much Fabian G. for being one of the most knowledgeable and charismatic tour guides we have experienced. Also wanted to thank Stefan I think that was his name for keeping us engaged during the Pompeii tour. You can expect lots of scenic views, lots of great history, more food and wine that you know what to do with - fortunately you will be walking it all off and fun and experienced tour guides. Gratzie!

  • Great tour with guide Cesare. Everything was better than expectations. Pompeii tour was very informative. Lunch at winery was superb and climb up Vesuvius was a lifetime event. I highly recommend the tour.

  • Fab trip. We ended up being in a group of 4 people so the day was extremely relaxed and able to get great time with the guides who answered our questions and were very informative. The meal at the vineyard was fantastic and the wines were lovely - ended up ordering far too many to be delivered home but well worth it. Trekking to the top of Vesuvius was the highlight but very tough, wear the right shoes!

  • Pompeii and wine testing and lunch very good. Vesuvius National Park closed due to forest fires and had been for a few weeks and so could not go up Vesuvius but we're not told this until morning of trip and went to see another volcanic site which was boring and not what we had paid for. They should have offered us the choice and either gone to other volcanic site, dropped us off early or offered a refund. Really wanted to do Vesuvius but could not and told only on the day very bad organisation and taking money for not what we had ordered or paid for.

  • This tour was very well done and put host had a vast knowledge about the area and history, highly recommend and if you have the pleasure to have Fabian host your experience you will be blessed, he has a true gift for travellers and ensuring they are informed, engaged, and entertained
