Description

Visit both the ruined city of Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano that destroyed it, in one day trip. Travel from Rome to Pompeii, where you will enjoy Skip-the-Line entry, and then to the foot of Vesuvius in an air-conditioned private coach, entertained all the way by your expert tour co-ordinator. You’ll also have the opportunity to hike up the volcano to peer into the crater itself.

The eruption in AD 79 spelled a fiery end for Pompeii, but the catastrophe also almost perfectly preserved the port city under layers of Volcanic ash. Thousands of years later, you can still explore the eerie streets and step inside homes, bathhouses and fast food places, as the licensed guide paints a vivid picture of life in the city’s final days.

In addition to the guided portion of your tour, you’ll have time for wandering and picture-taking in Pompeii – followed by an authentic Neapolitan pizza lunch.

A short coach ride and a half-mile hike from the car park takes you to the sometimes still-steaming crater of Mt. Vesuvius. Stand at the epicentre of that ancient disaster and feel awe at the utter devastation it must have caused. Then, turn and enjoy the contrast: the crater offers the most stunning view of the sun-drenched Bay of Naples.

Note: During summer months in rare cases of inclement weather or strikes, the crater of Vesuvius may be closed to visitors. If this is the case an alternative visit to the Archaeological Museum of Pompeii will be included instead.

In winter, when Vesuvius is closed for hiking, the tour travels from Pompeii to Naples, with views of the volcano on the way. You’ll have ample free time to explore Naples – a city as vibrant and alive as Pompeii.

Great food. And the fourth meal is paste which was amazing. Ended up with a fantasy gelato stop. Try the egg whip cream favor it was amazing.

Unexpected trip! The timing of the trip was well planned. A hike up Mt Vesuvio, pizza lunch, followed by the tour around Pompeii. We loved this trip so much that we booked for Ostia Antica (unknown gem) the following day! Angela, our guide was very informative. Loved the way she kept the whole group engaged. Antonio, our driver, kept us safe the whole day. Driving up Mount Vesuvio was not easy. Its a 2 way road that looks like 1 way. Imagine 40 seater buses driving towards each other on narrow slopes up the crater. It needs experience. Enrico, our local guide at Pompeii, was very knowledgable. There were loads of laughter!
