Full description

Travel from Rome to Pompeii in an air-conditioned private coach, accompanied all the way by your expert tour coordinator. Benefit from skip-the-line entry and enjoy a self-guided visit around the ancient city. Throughout the ruins, you’ll come across death casts: plaster recreations of unfortunate citizens preserved by the superheated volcanic ash. After visiting Pompeii, the coach will take you 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, where you can explore the iconic Castle Nuovo, the famous art deco Umberto I Gallery, or simply wander around the monumental Plebiscito Square.

Absolutely loved this tour. We took at bus out to Pompeii where we were given tickets to enter and walk around on your own. There was plenty of time to see everything and our tour guide gave us a map with some key spots to check out. I would recommend getting an audio guide if you're able to. Our tour guide did provide some basic info prior to entering, but since it is not a guided tour inside, we would have liked more information at various points. Overall we still had a great time seeing all of the ruins. There is a good restaurant outside the ruins that you can buy food at prior to boarding the bus to go to Mt. Vesuvius. Mt. Vesuvius was also a neat experience. Be prepared to walk up a steep hill. I would consider us active and fit and it took us about 15-20 minutes to get to the top and we were huffing and puffing! So be prepared for a good workout! But the views are spectacular and you can say then say you were at the top of an active volcano!

We were lucky enough to be accompanied by Anna and Marius on our tour to Pompeii and Vesuvius. Anna was a fantastic tour guide, she provided us with so much information but in a very relaxed and casual manner. Marius navigated the tricky roads of Vesuvius like a gladiator, while we relaxed over the views of Naples & Sorrento. Would highly recommend to anyone and everyone I know!

Pompeii was beautiful but the guide didn’t come with us and we had to chose either get an audio guide for an extra 8 euro or go without, we had plenty of time for lunch and then headed to Vesuvius to find it closed because of wind condition, so instead we got 30 minutes to walk around in Naples, it was a beautiful day for that but being able to understand the guide which wasn’t always speaking loud pr coherent enough would ve made it even more beautiful!
