Full description
With this round-trip shuttle service between Rome and Pompeii, you can explore the ancient city of Pompeii on your own or with a guide without having to worry about transportation. Buried after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius more than 20 centuries ago, creating a shower of burning cinders and rock fragments that covered the city, the remains of Pompeii are one of the best preserved ancient cities in the world. Populated with frescoes and monuments you will be able to explore a city as it was back in the days of the Roman Empire. Pompeii was rediscovered in 1748, when excavations began, and through the different centuries more and more parts of the city have been unearthed. Watch your step as you go around visiting the temples and theaters, as excavations continually take place in the site and you might even discover something yet unknown!

The guide in the bus was good. The guide at Pompeii was friendly and seemed knowledgeable but all 4 of us found her English very hard to understand. We maybe got 40% of what she said. I don't regret the trip but I'm not sure I'd recommend it either because it's so much bus time relative to actual exploration time.

The tour is highly recommended. The meeting point chosen very well. The bus and our tour guide Claudia arrived on time and from an organizational point of view there really is nothing wrong with it. Even if the tour is in English, you can understand everything very well. Claudia gave us a lot of interesting information during the trip to Pompei. On site we explored Pompei on our own and thus had 4 hours. Luckily we were only a small group of about 23 people. Everyone was at the meeting point on time. On the way back, an Italian food market was headed for. Claudia also informed us here in advance. Here you could go to the toilets and if you wanted to try and buy the local specialties. I didn't see it as a tourist trap. You don't have to buy anything. And if you use it to support the local people, it's not a bad thing. It was definitely a little change on the 3 hour drive back.
