Pompeii Tour Overview

Pompeii, the most popular day tour destination from Rome is a partly buried Roman town-city near modern Naples. This tour combines them both, Naples in the morning and then the afternoon in Pompeii.

Pompeii is about 10 miles along the motorway from Naples.

Its a long, (around 13 hours) day but rewarding with memories that will last a life time. Transport is by air-conditioned coach (maximum 50 people) with a central Rome pickup plus hotel pickups from selected hotels.

Pompeii & Naples Tour Itinerary

You will first travel along the Highway of the Sun, crossing the area known as Castelli Romani dotted with enchanting medieval villages. During the journey you will pass the ruined Abbey of Monte Cassino, destroyed during the Second World War.

After a photo stop at Naples' impressive Castel dell'Ovo (Egg Castle), you'll continue across Naples' historic centre. You'll pass Naples' historic sights, including the Royal Palace, Basilica of San Francesco di Paola, San Carlo Opera House, Gallery of Umberto I and imposing Castel Nuovo.

Leaving Naples, you will cross the valley of Mount Vesuvius, passing through the villages of Ercolano (Herculaneum), Torre del Greco and Torre Annunziata before arriving in Pompeii for lunch.

After lunch, you will take a two-hour walking tour of the ancient city of Pompeii with a local guide. A thrilling archaeological journey unfolds as you walk through the ancient ruins which were buried in ashes after Mount Vesuvius erupted almost 2000 years ago.

You'll discover the everyday life of Rome's Imperial age at this UNESCO World Heritage Site, and imagine the panic felt by the people in those last few minutes before the city was so disastrously buried.

On the trip back to Rome (approximately three hours), you'll stop at a coral and cameo factory, where you will have the opportunity to purchase examples of this ancient craft that dates back to the Greek period.
