Full description
Take an amazing journey back in time on this full-day tour to the archaeological ruins of Pompeii: a unique document of Greco-Roman life. Travel through the famous Roman countryside and enjoy incredible views of the Mediterranean, Mount Vesuvius, and countless historic sites. The first stop will be in Naples. This Mediterranean city is famous for its rich history, art, culture and gastronomy. You’ll drive up the Vomero hill for a view over the town which overlooks the bay of Naples and extends from the Sorrento peninsula to volcanic area of Phlegrean fields. The skyline is dominated by the majestic and still active volcano Vesuvius. This is the perfect spot to take photos of this stunning landmark. Driving down towards the port of Mergellina, travel south towards Mount Vesuvius and the town of Pompeii. Stop for a traditional lunch of Neapolitan pizza with a drink before reaching the archaeological site. Continue to the UNESCO World Heritage listed Pompeii and enter with skip-the-line tickets. Spend the afternoon exploring this once thriving city that was frozen in time by layers of volcanic ash. Wander through the ancient streets and learn about the history of this place from your guide. After your tour of Pompeii, enjoy the leisurely return trip to Rome.

We enjoyed this tour very much. We were staying in Rome. We met at the meeting point and took the bus which was very comfortable and cool stopping for a break and driving through the beautiful city of Naples. Pompei was amazing. We will definitely plan to return as one day is not enough for Pompei. We recommend this tour to everyone.

The trip was great. The tour guide was really nice and always tried and was available for all questions. Unfortunately, we had a French group with us, so everything was explained in two languages, which meant a lot of standing around and waiting for it to be translated. Otherwise everything was really great, so I would recommend it if you have the patience to wait every now and then for French to be translated :)
