Your guide will pick you up from your chosen Naples location in the morning. Your day starts with a 2-hour coach tour of Naples’ highlights.

Admire Castel Nuovo (New Castle), a symbolic royal structure dating back to 1279, and see San Francesco di Paola church in Piazza del Plebiscito, the city's main square.

Hop off the coach to explore the area around the Royal Palace of Naples, one of the four residences used by the Bourbon Kings during their rule of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies from 1730 to 1860. Enter the dome of Naples Cathedral to learn about the significance of this grand church.

Your last stop in Naples is the hill-top Posillipo quarter, where you'll pause to enjoy panoramic views of the city and the Bay of Naples.

Drive 30 minutes down the coast to the legendary city of Pompeii. Arriving in the late morning, you'll have time for lunch if you wish (own expense) before taking a guided walk around Pompeii's haunting ruins.

Hear how this ancient city was destroyed by the infamous Mt Vesuvius eruption in 79 AD as you visit the Forum, the Thermal Baths, Vetti's House and the Lupanare brothel, which were all buried by volcanic ash after the sudden and devastating eruption.

You’ll spend two hours exploring this fascinating archaeological site with your guide. Then hop in the coach for the drive back to Naples.

Our tour guide was excellent

Reviewed by: Betty L, June 2015

Promptly picked up at our hotel in a clean, air conditioned bus and met by Andre, our guide for complete tour. Andre is fluent in many languages, but English was our language and we were very pleased. His passion is history, therefore, we had an informative tour with a tremendous amount of humor thrown in. The city tour was quick but saw much more than if we were on our own. About 40 minute ride to Pompeii. The site was so interestingly presented by Andre. While there were headsets for the Pompeii portion of the trip - it was always easy to hear and understand what Andre was saying. Back at the entrance, a gift of Lemoncello was a welcome treat. At this time, we opted to go on to the afternoon Mt. Vesuvius tour which included lunch. Lunch was a typical Italian lunch. Another short ride and we were at the base of Mt Vesuvius. We were given time to climb and return Its a hike, but well worth it. Again spectacular sites from the view at the top you will think was worth the hike. This was the last of the 5 tours we took with Viator in Italy. All upcoming tour needs, I will definitely choose Viator as a booking site as promised, prompt and professional. P.S. If you can get Andre for your guide you are in for a treat!
