Know More about this tour

This full-day tour from Rome takes you on a discovery of the ancient city of Pompeii. After being picked up from your hotel in Rome in the morning, you will spend about three hours driving through Latium region and Campania.

See the Montecassino Abbey on top of the mountain from the bus, then approach Naples. Stop for a panoramic look at the cityscape, Mergellina, Castel dell'Ovo, and the Gulf of Naples with the Mount vesuvius. Then head back on the road to Pompeii, with a stop for a 2-course lunch in a traditional restaurant.

Afterward, arrive at the haunting ruins of Pompeii and learn the story behind the fateful day in 79 AD when the neighboring Mount vesuvius erupted, covering the prosperous Roman city in deadly volcanic ash.

Your ticket will allow you to skip the line at the entrance, bypassing the crowds. See shops, houses and streets, and imagine how rich and prosperous the lifestyle of the citizens was before the Mount vesuvius changed their destiny.

    Tour was great. Tour leader Marco kept us occupied during the bus ride from Rome to Naples and Connie did an excellent job guiding us through a short tour of Naples and Pompeii. My only issue was the group size in Pompeii itself. The group was over 35 people and we couldn't fit in some of the areas within Pompeii while Connie was giving the tour. Sometimes would be describing an area while some of the group was still stuck outside and couldn't tell what she was talking about. Splitting the bus up into 2 groups during the Pompeii portion would fix this. Of course the tour would be a bit more expensive but the experience would be much better. Thanks for a great day.

    Our guides Victorio and Marco were amazing guides! Thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour of Pompeii and Naples. Definitely recommend.

    We had a nice time with Gray Line Tour with Alessander and Paola as our guides. They were patient, showed us the important places nicely at a comfortable pace. It was a long day, but we never felt tired or rushed although we covered several places. They gave us breaks in between. Though the pizza lunch was not satisfying, we expected better pizza in the land of Pizza especially Naples, but otherwise it was a wonderful day.

    Trip was good and compact. It was a 13 hour trip ( Hotel pickup to Drop point). It was well coordinated and the guides were pretty knowledgeable. It had been good to directly go to Pompeii excluding the Naples tour of 40 minutes as I felt that reduced the time for the actual stay in the tour. But overall a nice coordinated tour . Thank you...

    We are so happy to have chosen this tour. Our tour guides and driver were all wonderful. They were very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The guides had great personalities and made the tour a blast. I'd definitely recommend this tour to my fellow travelers.

    Enjoyed the Pompeii tour and the drive by of Naples. Beware that you spend 3/4 of an hour at a cameo factory and 3/4 of an hour at limencello tasting. Neither of these were stated as part of the tour. We would have rather had the extra time in Pompeii. As it turned out we only had 2 hours at the actual site. Felt quite rushed through Pompeii as a result. Better to do your own tour through the sight. Would not recommend this exact tour.

    Too much driving around and too many food stops. The Pompeii tour was fine but I could do without driving around Naples looking at the bay over and over again.

    It was very good, lunch in Naples was fine. Anna was our guide for Pompeii, she was very knowledgeable and made it interesting. Thank you!

    Was a great trip and the view is perfect for the family. Our guide on the bus was funny and very informative. Our guide at Pompeii was like a teacher, I and the wife laughed. Overall, you will enjoy your trip and have no issues at all.
