Experience

  • Visit Mount Vesuvius and gaze into the active volcano that once buried Pompeii under ash
Full description
Spend a fascinating and educational day visiting the ancient Roman cities of Herculaneum and Pompeii. Explore these extremely well-preserved ancient towns and then drive to the top of the very volcano that destroyed them nearly 2,000 years ago, and yet rendered them eternal. This full-day tour provides a unique opportunity to experience how ancient Romans lived and admire the level of civic progress and artistic skills they had reached. After the fall of the Roman Empire such levels of achievement were not reached again until the 17th and 18th centuries. The route that takes you to the top of Mount Vesuvius passes through a national park of unusual beauty. See pine forests, lush wooded areas, bright yellow flowers, and an uncanny volcanic landscape. You’ll have spectacular views of the Bay of Naples as well.

Excellent day, if there are 6-8 people in your party I would highly recommend this tour as cost is approx £900. The driver was waiting for us 30mins early in a lovely Mercedes minibus, travelled to Pompeii where we met our guide, he was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and spoke great English. Pompeii is huge and we spent about 3hrs there where he showed and explained soo much about it and I suspect would be lost in a large group. On to Herculaneum for a similar experience then up to Vesuvius to be dropped off close to the entrance, spent approx 90mins walking up/down with the driver pulling into the carpark as we came down. As mentioned above it is an expensive day and you could join other trips of 20-30 people in a group but the personal touch this trip gave was worth the extra £30-£40 it probably cost us each.

The tour of Pompei and Herculaneum was excellent despite the torrential rain and flooding that prevented us from going to Mt. Vesuvius. I am hoping to get a refund for that portion of the tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and did not let the foul weather dampen her mood. There was confusion regarding the pick up time. The email said pickup at 8:00 and when they didn't show we called them abd they said they changed the pickup to 9:00 am. After several phone calls they finally picked us up at close to 9:45. That was a very poor way to start a really good tour.

Incredible experience!!! Our train from Rome was cancelled but the company was very kind and patient with us!! We communicated easily and were able to arrange for a later start. When we finally arrived in Napoli our driver, Mirco, was waiting, very kind and professional. We were able to see Pompeii and Herculaneum and our guide, Anna, was an actual ARCHEOLOGIST!!!! She was incredible and participated in the ongoing excavations herself so she had very intimate knowledge of the sites and pointed out fascinating details that most would miss. She was very patient and entertaining, super enthusiastic, and her English was perfect. Due to our late arrival, we were not able to make it up to Mt. Vesuvius but honestly, we were so happily exhausted after our extensive tour of Pompeii and Herculaneum, we were fine to just see it from a distance. Excellent tour, worth every euro!!!!
