Full description

Take an amazing journey back in time on this day tour to the archaeological ruins of Pompeii from Rome. Travel through the Italian countryside and enjoy incredible views of the Mediterranean, Mount Vesuvius, and countless historic sites.

Be picked up at a central location in Rome and board an air-conditioned bus with plenty of legroom. Enjoy rolling hills on the drive to Naples. Stop to take in this Mediterranean city which is famous for its rich history, art, culture, and gastronomy. 

Drive up the Vomero hill for views of the city, the bay of Naples, the Sorrento peninsula, and the volcanic area of Phlegrean fields. The skyline is dominated by the majestic and still-active volcano Vesuvius, the perfect spot to take photos of this stunning landmark.

Continue down towards the port of Mergellina, and travel south towards Mount Vesuvius and the town of Pompeii. Stop for a traditional lunch of Neapolitan pizza with a drink before reaching the archaeological site. 

Head to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Pompeii and enter with skip-the-line tickets. Spend the afternoon exploring this once-thriving city that was frozen in time by layers of volcanic ash. 

Wander through the ancient streets and learn about the history of this place from your guide. After your tour of Pompeii, enjoy the leisurely return trip to your meeting point in Rome.

This was an amazing tour lead by an extremely knowledgeable and passionate guide names Rosella (she even booked for us, on our request one of her favourite resturants in rome to eat after the trip which was also amazing called Osteria Al Vicolo 9 which i would also 100% recommened). It was wonderful to see the treasures of Pompeii and its museums. The guide provided indepth background info on Ancient Rome and the history on Pompeii. It was wonderful to skip lines and gain to access to everywhere quickly, would 100% recommend.

Pompeii was amazing and Mara was a good guide both her English and her Spanish were excellent Lunch was So so but the other travelers from various countries made it fun. I would have preferred spend less time in Naples and more time in Pompei. The local guide was better, in Pompeii than on the bus ride had some problems with the headsets, but other than that it was a good experience I would do it again.

Day trip to Pompei from Rome. It was an early start as expected. We went to Naples and took photos. There was stops along the way for coffee or toilet. My advice is bring some snacks with you as the shop they stop at was very expensive for things like coffee. Nice coffee though. The lunch was pizza in Pompeii. The lunch was tasty pizza and salad and ice cream. The restaurant was ok it felt very rushed in there.
