Experience legendary Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius, the only active volcano in continental Europe, on this fully guided day trip from Naples. Visit Pompeii’s haunting ancient ruins, enjoy lunch with your group and then hike to the smoking summit of Mt Vesuvius for panoramic views of the Bay of Naples.

Highlights

  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
  • All entrance fees included
  • Lunch included
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
After pickup from your hotel or the Naples train station, take a 30-minute drive to Pompeii, an ancient Roman city that was entirely destroyed by the sudden eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD. The largest archaeological site in Europe, today Pompeii is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
When you arrive, your guide will pick up your group’s pre-ordered tickets and lead you on a 2-hour walking tour of the fascinating grounds. Witness the destruction first-hand as you visit Pompeii’s most famous sites, including the Forum, the Thermal Baths, Vetti's House and the Lupanare brothel, giving you a glimpse into daily life during the Pax Romana. Today you can see shapes of objects — even bodies — that were buried beneath the volcanic ash and pumice.
After your tour, enjoy a pizza lunch with your group followed by some free time to browse the shops. Then board the coach and drive 40 minutes to legendary Mt Vesuvius.
Embark on a moderate hike up the volcano with your guide. When you reach the summit at 3,900 feet (1,200 meters), you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the picturesque Bay of Naples from east to west. Peer down into the crater and see plumes of steam issuing from the sleeping, but still active, volcano!
There is a rest point where you can choose to wait for your group if you do not wish to climb all the way to the top, but the hike is worth the effort.
After your Mt Vesuvius hike, relax on the drive back to Naples in the early evening.

Lets start with, This is a Fantastic Tour, unfortunately it did get of to a disappointing start, due to a last minute change of pick-up points and us being in a not so good mobile signal location we missed the change notification, which resulted in us being in the wrong place and missing the start of the tour.
On contacting the tour organizers they arranged for a mini bus to pick us up and catch up with the main tour bus. Off which we did just in time for lunch, which was Pizza at a local restaurant and was very nice. But we had missed the morning Pompeii visit, on speaking with the tour guide Manuela who was brilliant by the way she rearrange for us to do the Pompeii tour the next morning.
Mt Vesuvius is amazing and walking up it in 35 degrees is hard work but well worth it, the views around and into the crater are amazing. The next morning we did the Pompeii tour, everything ran smoothly all the pick ups were on time and the local guide that takes you around the site was very knowledgeable this made for a both fantastic and moving experience.
I would say these trips are a must for your bucket list and highly recommended, even if they were done over two days instead of one. In hindsight I think we enjoyed the trips better spread over two day.

Fantastic tour! As time was limited we only saw the main points of interest in Pompeii and would have liked a little longer there to explore more.
