Full Day Tour to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius, departing from Naples

Leave from Naples for an exciting excursion: in one day you can visit both Pompeii with its ruins and the Vesuvius, the volcano that submerged the ancient Roman city with the disastrous eruption of 79 AD. Do not miss this extraordinary tour, including archaeological sites, nature and panoramas.

Departure from the center of Naples for an unforgettable day trip
Explore the ruins of Pompeii and its extraordinary archaeological finds
Visit a workshop of fine cameos and corals, with shopping possibilities
Walk the trails along the beautiful slopes of the Vesuvius
Reach the crater of the volcano and enjoy the breathtaking views of the Gulf of Naples

Do not miss this day trip, departing from Naples, which will allow you to explore two extraordinary places of the Campania region: the ancient Roman city of Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius, the volcano that erupted in 79 AD, submerging with his ashes several towns including precisely Pompeii.

Visit the ruins of Pompeii from Naples by bus

With the transfer service, included in the tour, you will leave from the center of Naples by bus to Pompeii: there you will meet your guide who will accompany you on a walk through the ruins of the ancient Roman city, perfectly preserved by the eruption of Vesuvius that in 79 AD submerged it up to 10 meters. Visiting amphitheaters, gymnasiums and markets of Pompeii, you will relive the ancient and fascinating story of this city, doomed to be destroyed by a natural disaster.

Visit a typical cameo and coral laboratory

After the guided tour of Pompeii, you will visit a typical manufacturing laboratory of cameos and coral, and you will have the opportunity to see the working process of the artisans, and to buy the products. After the visit, you will go into a typical restaurant, a short walk from the lab, where you can eat having lunch with local products

Explore the Vesuvius Park up to its top

After lunch, you will reach the slopes of Vesuvius, where you will meet your guide who will take you to explore this impressive volcano. You will be accompanied along a lovely nature trail, surrounded by greenery and pure air. Then you will arrive to the top to admire the enormous crater and the breathtaking views of the Gulf of Naples.
At the end of the excursion you will return to Naples by bus.

Excellent value for money. Our guide Lucia was very informative for the whole day. Pompeii was just amazing, didn't think it could be topped but Mount Vesuvius was breath taking. The whole journey up there was in the mist. But the last few miles broke through the mist and the sun and blue skies were unbelievable. The whole day was one of most enjoyable. Would recommend this company any day as indeed I have already done so. Thanks again

Pompeii & Vesuvius day trip

I booked online before we went... A lot cheaper if you do this as it is really expensive if you book In Italy. Our guide Maria, Italian but spoke very good English, treated everyone with a relaxed and friendly attitude... First class! We went to Mount Vesuvius first walked to the top looked into the creator.. Fantastic! Then we drove to Pompeii and had lunch, after we were guided around pompeii via a intercom lead by maria, to view the entire place it takes two days, Maria took us to the main places.. it was brilliant, our guide Maris knows her stuff. Brilliant day out, well worth the money, super guide! Thank you!

Great personality!

This was a fantastic excursion. Our tour guide Francesco was absolutely brilliant and had the group laughing all day. Very funny guy and really entertaining. Not only that but his English was excellent and his knowledge of all things Pompei/Vesuvius related was extremely helpful. I must also give a big shout out to our driver Ferdinando. An established driver which is what is needed on these ever winding roads and a very pleasant one to boot!! The trip itself was amazing and definitely worth doing. Being at the top of mount Vesuvius is a fantastic sight to behold and Pompei is just as Francesco said "like being transported back in time" If thinking of doing this tour, this is the company to book with and I only hope you get Francesco. Very funny guy!!!!

Great day out

We had a great day visiting Pompei and Vesuvius with Hugo and Eustace and everyone was on time and Hugo our guide was very funny and made a hot sticky day fun. We did two hours in Pompei and with Hugo's experience managed to miss the crowds although we couldn't see every thing. Worth the money to take a guide and we are glad we did. As for the guide having and accent that is no surprise if you are in Italy!
