Full description

Travel from Rome to Pompeii in an air-conditioned private bus, accompanied by an archaeologist guide. Benefit from skip-the-line entry and enjoy a guided tour of the ancient city. Throughout the ruins, come across a death cast, a plaster recreation of an unfortunate citizen preserved by the superheated volcanic ash. After visiting Pompeii, drive up the slope of Mt. Vesuvius, (from April to mid-November), one of Europe’s few active volcanoes located in the Vesuvius National Park. From here, take a short hike up to the steaming crater for stunning views of Capri and Sorrento. During the winter season between November and March, Mt. Vesuvius is closed, so your tour will follow the coastline and take you to the city of Naples. Explore the iconic Castle Nuovo, the famous art deco Umberto I Gallery, or simply wander around the monumental Plebiscito Square.

Angie was amazing. Knowledgeable, friendly, funny, patient and a great story teller. I'd love to go on another trip just to hear her talk. Antonio our driver was lovely. Lillia our guide at Pompeii was very informative. Although it was a long day we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Rest stops were built in and it was possible to buy snacks at the stop. We were able to get lunch at Pompeii, very reasonably priced.

The guides and driver we had were all very good. The trip was very enjoyable and well worth it. I do with they factored in a little more time at both Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. The hike up Mt. Vesuvius is steep and anyone who can't hike at a good pace will have a hard time making it to the top and back in time.

Excellent day, but very long trip. So much history to take in in one day. Pompeii guide very good, but very little free time to take photos - this was because she wanted us to see as much as possible. Was surreal being in a town hidden for hundreds of years. If you can take the opportunity to hike up Mount Vesuvius. I am not fit, but I managed to reach the summit. The views are spectacular, and looking in the crater, seeing the rising steam , is something I never thought I would see. Didn't have time to go to the shops for souvenirs, but plenty of memories to take home.
