Full description
This full-day tour of Pompeii and Vesuvius begins with pickup from the centrally located meeting point in Naples and a transfer by bus to the ruins at Pompeii. There will be a tour assistant on the bus during this part of the excursion. On arriving in Pompeii you’ll meet your tour guide and then explore the ruins for around 2 hours. Your guide will show you the traditions and daily life of ancient Pompeii. You’ll see the large theater, the necropolis, the thermal baths, and some of the amazing houses that were owned by the richest residents. At the end of the Pompeii tour, you’ll visit a cameo and coral factory that’s located close to the ruins, where you’ll see the manufacturing processes used and have a chance to do a bit of shopping. Lunch will be at the Vesuvio restaurant, which is just a short walk from the factory. After lunch the tour heads to Mount Vesuvius where you’ll have a relaxing stroll through the nature reserve and then enjoy a leisurely walk to the top. You’ll experience astonishing views of the whole Gulf of Naples from the top of the volcano! Please note that during the afternoon visit to Mount Vesuvius there is no tour assistant.

Great history, great sights.

I booked the Pompeii and Vesuvius tour but Vesuvius was closed due to weather, so I went to the Amalfi coast instead. The tour guides were really knowledgeable, and the day wasn’t too long. Having a small group was excellent. Lunch was alright, and the transport was good. Except if you’re tall like me, there’s not much leg room! But that’s about it!

Pompeï was very interesting. Amalfi coast was beautiful.

Pompei was the morning activity with the whole group. The organisation was to slow and the group was to big. The english of the guide was very hard to understand. She had to explain in Italian and in english. Splitting up would be much better! Vesuvius in the afternoon was cancelled. Amalfi coast was beautiful. We had a small group with a guide who spoke only and perfect English !

Great day trip with very friendly and knowledgeable guides.

We booked our day trip the day before and found it to be very good. The guide we had for Pompeii (possible hay named Stephania, sorry I can't remember!) was fantastic. She had lots of information to share and made the tour fun and interesting. The lunch provided great food and we had good timing between Pompeii and Vesuvius. Very happy we chose this company for our day trip.
