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).

    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!

    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.

    Absolute "rip off" you promote pick up and your own guide ( both of which were excellent) pay big sum of money for this, then when you get to meet your guide she tells you that you can't go into Pompeii until you all pay another 14 euros each
    BE WARNED entrance is EXTRA yes ON TOP of what you pay !!!

    The trip to Pompeii was wonderful. We were picked up at the Naples train station and transported to Pompeii for our tour. We had a small group and our tour guide was very thorough, informative and accommodating. On the return trip we were able to be dropped off at a museum so they were flexible in pick up and drop off locations.

    Amazing tour and guide. Well worth the money spent for it to be a private tour - so much to see. All quite fascinating.

    Our driver and tour guide were great. We had a delay with being able to get off our cruise ship but they still made sure we were able to complete the tour.
    Lily, our tour guide, was very informative and took us to the more interesting parts of Pompei. A very interesting place to visit.

    Pompeii is truly an amazing site - which is why this review gets two stars instead of one. It is incredible to see how people lived so very long ago. Unfortunately, it was absolutely overrun with tours. Our tour guide was not friendly, ran through the talking points in an annoyed and bored tone. Her knowledge was tourist pamphlet level at best. She was just going through the motions. At the end she tried to say good bye to us without showing us the main square where the famous petrified dog is and other artifacts. It was a very hot day and I hate to say it but her body odor was unbearable. We had to hold our pamphlets in front of our faces to avoid the smell. Our driver from Naples to Pompeii and back was very friendly and helpful.
