Day tours from Rome overview

If you haven't the time or inclination to do a full tour of Italy, many of the top attractions in Italy can be visited by a long day tour from a Rome base. No need to pack your luggage and go through the tedious transfer process to another hotel.


By far the most popular single attraction from Rome are the famous ruins of Pompeii. There are several tours from Rome that twin Pompeii with other local attractions to Pompeii, the most popular being Mount Vesuvius or Naples.


You can also have an option of bypassing the long road trip to Pompeii by taking a fast express train to Naples from where tours to Pompeii leave from the station at Naples.


In the other direction from Rome (north), Florence is within range of a day trip, as is a tour of the Italian countryside and medieval towns and villages of Umbria and Tuscany.

 

Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius & Naples tours

Europe's only active volcano, Vesuvius is infamous for causing the destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79AD and has erupted many times since – today it's regarded as one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world.


Hiking the active volcano is the only way to truly experience the magic of Mt. Vesuvius.


The 20-minute upward hike to the crater takes you through soft volcanic ash and pumice, and the views from the top are worth the effort!

Alternatively, you can stay on the ridge of the volcano and admire the views.


Pompeii, sitting in the ominous shadow of Vesuvius. During your personalized tour of Pompeii's remarkably well preserved ruins, you'll discover why this UNESCO World Heritage Site continues to shock and fascinate over 2.6 million people who venture here each year.


The now ruined city of Pompeii was once a sprawling metropolis of shops and residences, restaurants, gyms and brothels.

You can walk Pompeii’s main streets just as the ancient Romans did – the stones are still worn with tracks from the drawn carriages that used them nearly 2,000 years ago.


You'll also visit the forum, the centre of Pompeii’s political and social life, and view the startling plaster death casts of the victims of the catastrophic eruption that destroyed the city of Pompeii.


Naples is a historic major city close by Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius and as you would expect plenty of historic monuments to view and stories to hear.
