About this tour

This full-day trip will take you from Rome to Pompeii in our air-conditioned private bus. You will not wait in line as we will arrange an express entry into the guided city. Your guide will take you around the ancient city and tell you more about its history. As you walk through the ruins, you will come across plaster casts. These are plaster recreations of people who died in the volcanic ash.

Your next stop will be the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. During the months of April to November, you can drive up the mountain. From the top, you will enjoy a view of one of Europe’s few active volcanoes located in Vesuvius National Park. This will be followed by a short hike to the steaming crater and a breathtaking view of Capri and Sorrento.

Mount Vesuvius is closed during the winter months of November to March. During this time, you will visit the coastline and explore the city of Naples. Enjoy a tour of the magnificent Castle Nuovo, Umberto I Gallery, and a stroll around the Plebiscito Square.

A very fun and educational experience combining the ethereal beauty of Pompeii and the breath taking sights of Mount Vesuvius. Our guides Barbara and Nicola were very nice and knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the city and Italy in general. Highly recommended experience!
