Know More about this tour

Your driver will pick you up from your Naples hotel, the Naples railway station or the Naples cruise terminal at your selected departure time and take you to Pompeii, located about 30 minutes away. Here, youll be greeted by your private guide and given an introduction to Pompeii.


On your 2-hour visit of this famous archaeological site, youll learn about what happened here one fateful summers day in 79 AD, when Mt vesuvius erupted and volcanic ash spewed over the entire city. Unaware of the imminent danger, most people continued on with their daily lives and, as a result, the entire town and around 20,000 of its inhabitants were buried under tons of ash and pumice.


Nearly 2,000 years later, you can explore the site of this infamous disaster and see first-hand the houses, streets and public buildings miraculously preserved by the volcanic ash. Your private guide, an expert archaeologist, will take you on a private tour of the excavated city, which offers a snapshot of 1st-century Roman life frozen at the moment Pompeii was buried. Explore fascinating sites such as the forum, the thermal baths, several houses and villas, the Lupanare brothel and the House of Vetti with its beautiful frescoes.


After your visit to Pompeii, youll have some free time to explore more on your own before hopping in the car and heading back to Naples.


Transport-Only Option
If you prefer to explore the Pompeii ruins independently, the transport-only option offers private round-trip transportation from Naples and lets you spend time in Pompeii on your own. Your driver will wait for you while you wander around Pompeii for a couple of hours, and then take you back to Naples. There is also an audio guide available (additional cost).

    Driver was great. Please note, nothing but transportation is included. Very expensive to take a glorified taxi to the site. Site was nice but not having a guide was a drawback. Pay the extra money for a guide.

    they let us wait for 45 minutes before the 2 hour tour started and another 45 minutes after it ended. waist of F time. the tour inside itself was ok, the guide was kind of lazy.

    I truly enjoyed our half-day trip to Pompeii. This particular tour through Project Napoli Service worked very well for my family because they were able to pick us up close to our rented villa and bring us back to that location. To clarify, our villa was on a pedestrian only street so we did have to arrange to meet the driver at the corner of our street. Our driver was Jean Franc. He was pleasant and helped us meet up with our tour guide. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and very helpful as one in our party is in a wheelchair. I would recommend this tour!

    Nuestra guia Margherita fue excelente y más que complaciente. Dominio perfecto del español y su recuento de datos buenísimo. En dos horas vimos lo más importante. Y en el albor del verano esta es el tiempo suficiente. Puntual. Media hora de viaje con Paolo 2 horas de tour, tiempo para baño comprar agua snack. Una maravillosa mañana.0

    I have always wanted to see Pompeii. Good weather is a blessing, so we were very fortunate. Our guide was wonderful, Lilli R.
    For some reason i thought that Pompeii would be frozen in time, with people frozen in place. Due to weather and in order to
    preserve, all has been sealed inside glass. The vivid fright and shock is so real. Make sure you go early so that you miss the crowds.
    We paid extra for a private tour and it was worth EVERY penny.

    Definitely worth it!!! Pick up was super easy and on time by the Metro in Naples. Bus ride was pleasant and our guide to Pompeii was super nice. We got to Pompeii a little early and had time for a quick coffee. The tour was very informative and interesting, our tour guide was very sweet, she loved that my husband is originally from Naples. We booked through Viator which was an easy process.
