What to Expect
Enjoy a private day trip from Rome to the ruins of Pompeii and the modern day city of Naples, traveling by comfortable Mercedes. Your tour includes 2 hours with a guide in Pompeii, a lunch stop on the slopes of Vesuvius, and free sightseeing time in Naples.
Following your hotel pick-up, your driver will drive directly to the entrance of Pompeii, situated on a volcanic plateau on the southern slope of Mt. Vesuvius. Learn the tragic story behind the everyday Roman town as you wander the streets between former houses and shops. Relive the last moments before they were buried by the eruption of Vesuvius.
Marvel at the Marina Gate, and Basilica (Court House). See where the citizens gathered at the Stabian Baths and Theatres. You will even visit the old brothel (Lupanar), and a former bakery. Admire mosaic tiles at sites such as the House of Faun and House of the Tragic Poet, as well as plaster casts that depict Pompeii's residents caught in the poses at the moment they died.
After a meal in a typical restaurant on the slopes of the Mt. Vesuvius, continue with a scenic drive of Naples, where your driver will tell you about the highlights of the city so that you can make the most of your sightseeing time alone.
Pass through busy Piazza Garibaldi, and watch the bustle of pedestrians on Corso Umberto Primo. Look at the cruise liners in the Port of Naples, and travel down the breathtaking promenade of the Riviera di Chiaia. Go to the harbor of Mergellina to look at the luxury yachts, and travel uphill to Posillipo for views across the sea to Capri.
