Naples and Pompeii Small-Group Full-Day Tour
Take a day trip along the Mediterranean Coast, traveling south down the highway toward the ancient archaeological site of Pompeii, to get away from the bustle of Rome.
Continue to the Pompeii ruins for a breakfast stop, where an official guide will take you on a walking tour of the impressively intact city. Pompeii was lost for hundreds of years after being buried by molten lava and ash when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD. It was only partially rediscovered in 1599.
Hear the tale of how the city was destroyed by the ferocity of the volcano as you marvel at the everyday town's homes, shops, public baths, and even a brothel.
Lunch is included in the cost of the tour and includes a tasting of local products. Take in the stunning views of the Gulf of Naples, which is shaped like a crescent and contains the glamorous islands of Capri and Ischia. Take in the sights of famous piazzas like Piazza del Plebiscito and historic castles like Castel Nuovo and Castel Sant'Elmo while sipping a typical Neapolitan coffee to refuel for a city center stroll.
