Enjoy your travel from Rome to Pompeii's archaeological site by the comfortable air-conditioned private bus with your guide keen on archaeology. After moving swiftly across the security check with skip-the-line ticket, explore many amusing exhibits, such as a death cast, a plaster replica of an unfortunate citizen preserved by the heated volcanic ash, that can be found throughout the ruin.

Move up the slope of Mt. Vesuvius, one of Europe's few active volcanoes in the Vesuvius National Park, after visiting Pompeii (from April to mid-November). For stunning views of Capri and Sorrento, take a short hike up to the steaming crater from here.

Your tour will take you to the city of Naples along the coast because Mt. Vesuvius is closed between November and March during the winter months. Take a stroll around the massive Plebiscito Square, the well-known art deco Umberto I Gallery, or the iconic Castle Nuovo.

Important information:

  • There might be seldom cases of bad weather, including strikes in the summer. In this case, an entry to the crater of Vesuvius may be forbidden and you'll be provided with an alternative option of visit to Naples
  • From late November to March the Vesuvius isn't accessible as well and it'll be replaced with a visit to Naples
  • Please, provide all the passenger's names while booking the visit to Mount Vesuvius. Otherwise, you'll be refused to entry

The guide, Emiliano, was outstanding. He was friendly, funny and really informative. Could not ask for better. The tour of Pompeii was too rushed and we missed out on a lot and not given sufficient time for photos. The bus driver was amazing. Just wish we had better weather on the mountain.

Amazing experience, it just doesn’t hit you until you actually walk those streets, Pompeii is so powerful and sad. The trek was great but very hot, wear very comfortable shoes as the ground is uneven, I wouldn’t wear sandals. They have sticks to help walk up with, but don’t really Need them. Barbara was our guide and was brilliant, very informative, funny and friendly. The best guide I have ever had. Our driver Antonio was an super driver, getting us easily up those high and tight corners to ...

It is quite the day. Pompeii is very interesting and the guides try to not run into each other too much. Vesuvio is a uphill walk that is doable, but in the given time a challenge for not so fit people. But worth the hike! We had a great guide that made it all entertaining and interesting. I am glad I went.

Brilliant experience and couldn’t fault the tour from start to finish. It’s a long day but you can sleep on the coach. The day is well planned and you stop once each way for refreshments and toilet breaks etc. Both Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius were unreal and are a must if you have a spare day in Rome. Highly recommend.

Great tour! It is a long day, with a lot of time spent on the bus but our guide Eriga used the journey to give us some great information about pompei, the various areas we passed and Italy in general. She also knew when to let people relax and sleep. We got a guided tour of pompei, that included ear pieces which was great. We then had lunch which you could get yourselves or join the group for a meal organised by the guide. Finally we did a hike to look at the crater of the volcano. The tour w...

I loved this trip! A very easy and fun way to get to Pompei and Vesuvius. We made stops for snacks and lunch (very affordable) too so we didn’t need to bring much. Our guides were cheerful, calm, and organized. I really appreciated the balance of sharing information on the bus and leaving silence for us to relax in.

The whole trip (21/08/22) was excellent from start to finish and that’s because our host Erika was amazing. We learnt so much information from her and her knowledge was outstanding. Erika’s humour made the trip fun and gave me lots of laughs that helped break the journey up. We felt very welcome and that was so much appreciated. Erika was funny, happy and approachable and the driver Joseph did a super job getting us to our destinations. My only regret was that I had no more small change to gi...

This was a fab trip made even better with our wonderful tour guide Rob and amazing driver Julio. The bus was comfortable and air conditioned. The itinerary was great we stopped at a road side cafe with beautiful pastries and then continued onto Pompeii where we met with our brilliant tour guide Willy ( very funny man) . Rob organised lunch for us and most of the people on the bus for a very cheap price and the food was lovely . Then we drove on to mt Vesuvius . It was a wonderful trip so well...

Simply brilliant.... We were a little worried about the amount of time traveling but we need not have been. The whole day was a fabulous experience, Pompeii is something I had only ever heard about at school, the scale was breathtaking. Never realised how big it was. The trip to Vesuvius.....another level. The walk to the top whilst not for the faint hearted was well worth the effort. Glad to say we both made it and the views were incredible. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
