Short on time but want to see Pompeii? This half-day tour from Rome is just the right ticket to see the archaeological ruins at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Pompeii. Travel by high-speed train between Rome and Naples, enjoy coach transport to and from Pompeii and take a 2-hour walking tour of the site with a guide. Fun and insightful commentary bring the ancient town to life as you explore, and there’s also a bonus visit to an intriguing Domus, a home once reserved for the Roman elite.

Know More about this tour

Meet a host at Rome Termini station to receive your train tickets. Then, hop aboard your high-speed train to Naples Central Station, where you arrive in just an hour. Meet your local guide as you leave the train, and swap your mode of transport to an air-conditioned coach for the short shuttle to Pompeii.

On arrival at the site, head straight inside the ruins with your skip-the-line ticket, and learn about the site's past and present from your guide. Easily one of the world's most famous digs, Pompeii holds a spot on the UNESCO World Heritage list for its incredibly preserved ruins.

Explore streets flanked with monuments, fossils, and ruins, and see the sights that offer an insight into the life in a bustling ancient town. A highlight of the tour is your visit to a Domus, which would have once been the dwelling of an upper-class Roman family. See how Pompeii's most influential people would have lived, and admire the vivid frescoes of gods, beasts, and landscapes that bedeck the different rooms.

When your 2-hour tour ends, take a break to enjoy a cup of coffee at your own expense, or perhaps shop for souvenirs at the site's gift shop. Then, return to the prearranged point to reboard your coach, and travel back to Naples. Finally, board your train to finish your experience at Rome Termini station in the early afternoon.

    You only get an 1:45 hour tour and 20 minutes by the shoppes. Overall not worth the price of the tour.

    The tour was too short. We did see the best parts of the site and then only had 15 minutes for WC stop and shopping before bus left. Bus hit traffic when entering downtown and we had to get out and hike last half mile to make the train. The site is great, but this particular tour is poor.

    This was a wonderful way to see Pompeii. The train is super fast and a pleasant trip to Naples. There we were picked up by a van and driven to Pompeii. Michael was a wonderful guide. The only problem was a mixup with a friends ticket ( her fault) but the company did nothing to get her on the tour so we had to leave her in Rome. I recommend checking your ticket very closely when purchasing on line because they were of no help when the error was discovered.

    Picked this tour as did not want to do a long coach journey..and i wasnt disappointed everything was well organised from the train tickets, coach and guide in Pompeii even had free time for quick lunch or souvenier shopping..
    Guide was very enagaging and encouraged questions..
    Yes tour was bit on the dear side but takes away any hassles of doing it yourself so makes the trip more memorable and enjoyable

    What a great tour. No hiccups along the way just great service from start to finish. I would highly recommend the small group setting. The audio headsets enabled us to hear our guide at all times.

    Getting to Pompeii early via fast train helped make this tour even more enjoyable. Easy access from Naples station to the site, and we had an excellent tour guide for the ruins.
