Know More about this tour

Start your day with a pickup from your centrally located Rome hotel, then settle into your comfortable seat aboard a private, air-conditioned minivan and head south to Italys Campania region. As you travel, take in the pretty landscape of Castelli Romani and Lazio, and look out for the Abbey of Montecassino, a magnificent Benedictine monastery.

After around three hours, arrive at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Pompeii. An ancient Roman city set in the shadow of Mt Vesuvius, Pompeii was buried under a torrent of ash and burning pumice in 79 AD when the volcano violently erupted.

Pay your entrance fee and then head inside to explore independently. Or, if youve upgraded, join up with an expert guide to begin your tour.

Gain fascinating insight into the everyday life of the Imperial era as you stroll through the well-preserved streets, passing houses and public buildings that have been locked in time by the volcanic ash.

See the ancient piazza and the impressive limestone columns of the Forum, where elections and other political and business events would have taken place during Roman times. Then, perhaps head to the thermal baths, where many of Pompeiis inhabitants would have bathed and socialized.

Marvel at the remains of the Teatro Grande, an impressive theater that once sat some 5,000 people, and stop by the Lupanar, a brothel decorated with eye-popping frescoes.

After exploring the site, hop back inside your private minivan for your return journey to Rome. Along the way, stop for lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant.

Your tour then ends with a drop-off back at your Rome hotel.
