Despite wars waged on its soils, assaults by earthquakes and a volcano eruption 19 centuries ago, Pompeii remains a vibrant, well-preserved and accessible destination. As you wander from mosaic to monument, and temple to theater, you'll step back in time and imagine daily life in this legendary city. To help you navigate your way around the site, remember that all paths begin and end with beautiful frescoes depicting scenes from daily life in ancient Pompeii.

The trip from Rome to Pompeii takes three and a half hours. Note, you'll board the shuttle for your return journey at 3:30pm, arriving back in Rome at around 7pm.

Not knowing the city, we did a test run to find our morning meeting spot the night before. Directions to the office weren't as clear and this helped. Other tour members didn't, and after loading and starting through the city, our bus had to circle back to pick up a tardy client. Our guide Gio was informative with a little bit of info on Pompeii and a lot of helpful info for first time tourists in Rome. The bus ride was comfortable and went quickly. The local tour leader Francisco was a character and we were thrilled all around with the depth of his knowledge and story telling that gave context to our experience at Pompeii.

Fantastic tour! The bus trip was comfortable and quiet. The guide on the bus was informative without using the microphone constantly like some tours!
The guide at Pompeii was fantastic! His name is Carmen and He had good English skills, was helpful and friendly.
The tour is amazing and a must see!
There is alot of walking and is quite rocky and uneven, consider this especially for the elderly and handicapped.
