It was here — on a summer’s day in the year 79AD — that Mount Vesuvius erupted, spewing volcanic ash over the prosperous city of Pompeii. Unaware of the imminent danger, most people continued on with their daily lives. As a result, the entire town and around 20,000 of its inhabitants were buried under tons of ash and burning pumice. Almost 2,000 years later, ancient Pompeii remains preserved and the artefacts on display provide a fascinating insight into life in the Roman-era.
Enter the ancient site with your guide and see first-hand the houses, streets and public buildings locked in time by the volcanic ash.
See Pompeii’s ancient piazza and Forum, where business dealings, elections, speeches and processions would have played out during Roman times. Wander the site, marvel at the ancient limestone columns still standing today and capture the centuries-old scenery on camera.
Continue onward with your guide to the thermal baths, where many of the townsfolk would have bathed, chatted and lived out their daily lives before the eruption. Wander down Via degli Augustali and discover the Lupanare, Pompeii’s brothel. A 2-storey building with five rooms on each floor, the Lupanare is decorated with some of the city’s most lustful frescoes.
Explore the Casa dei Vettii (Vetti's House), a luxury residence in the town. Careful excavation has revealed a number of beautiful frescoes on the walls of the house, evidence of the wealth and stature of its former inhabitants.
Your exact route will depend on the crowds and weather conditions. At the end of your time in Pompeii, travel back to Naples by minivan where your tour will come to an end.

Wow! What a great day! This is so worth it. We splurged on high speed rail tickets from Rome so we could make the tour and return quickly. Our guide was amazing and we walked all over the ruins as she kept us throughly engaged in everything around us. You will walk through the ruins of a home and see beautiful and sometimes weird paintings on the walls of the dining room and office and see the open garden in the center of the structure. The baths are facinating! This is a fairly long and involved tour that keeps your feet and imagination moving the entire time. The train, high speed or not, is a really nice way to relax and make time toward this destination. We were able to time it perfectly taking the train from Rome and meeting our group right there at the station in front of a hotel. The trip to and fro by van was really short, about 25 minutes and it was very comfortable. We had a blast spending about 2 1/2 hours walking through the site with our fun, funny and energetic guide. We could have enjoyed a bit more but it really was enough time. Some people might want to spend the night along the coast which they say is beautiful but with 5 days on the ground in Rome and Florence this was the perfect way to see everything we wanted to.

The Pompeii tour from Naples, IT is one of the best tours I have ever had. Our tour guide forgot her name was born and raised in Naples, IT. She is very knowledgeable, explained all details. Our tour driver, Paulo, was nice and kind too. I learned a lot about 2,700 years old city. Absolutely recommend it. Loved it, loved it.
