  • From Rome: Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius Volcano Full-Day Trip

    1. From Rome: Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius Volcano Full-Day Trip

    Travel from Rome to Pompeii in an air-conditioned private coach, accompanied all the way by your expert tour coordinator. Benefit from skip-the-line entry and enjoy a self-guided visit around the ancient city. Throughout the ruins, you’ll come across death casts: plaster recreations of unfortunate citizens preserved by the superheated volcanic ash. After visiting Pompeii, the coach will take you up the slope of Mt. Vesuvius (from April to mid-November), one of Europe’s few active volcanoes located in the Vesuvius National Park. From here, take a short hike up to the steaming crater for stunning views of Capri and Sorrento. During the winter season between November and March, Mt. Vesuvius is closed, so your tour will follow the coastline and take you to the city of Naples, where you can explore the iconic Castle Nuovo, the famous art deco Umberto I Gallery, or simply wander around th...

    Well organized tour and well priced. My only recommendation is to allow more time for Mt. Vesuvius. Having only one hour to climb and descend was not enough time for us to fully aprreciate it.

    Through the previous helpful rating comments I could tell more about this tour than the actual description of it. The description in my opinion should tell you that you are only picking up the tickets in Sorrento and that you then take the train by yourself. Arrived in Pompei we had to wait for 40min (they told us 20) for the tour to start. So I am not sure why you actually have to choose a time for it, because it anyway seems fairly random to me. They just wait until they have a bigger group together. And the group was big. Over 20 people. the most important thing though is, that the tour itself was really good. It was really at least 2 hours long (counting from the time you actually leave with the guide) and the tour guide was funny and knowledgeable. So at the end it was worthwhile.

  • From Naples: Private Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius and Winery Tour

    7. From Naples: Private Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius and Winery Tour

    This tour begins with collection from a pre-arranged meeting point, and your driver will then take you to three key sites of the Naples region. Firstly, Pompeii is of unparalleled importance and a trip to the area would be incomplete without visiting the town, which was buried under a vast layer of burning stone and ash when Vesuvius erupted in AD79. Thanks to this layer of ash, everything was incredibly well-preserved so that visitors today can walk around an intact Roman town, enter houses, temples, amphitheatres and even a brothel, and truly feel what it was like to live in Roman times. The second stop is a vineyard located near the base of Mount Vesuvius. Here, you will be able to taste some delicious local wines and visit the vineyard. Boscotrecase, where it is located, is a town of intense agricultural activity, especially directed to the production of fine wines. Finally, visit ...

    Not to be cheeky but Fabrizio made Pompeii come to life. He kept all of our attention as we worked our way throughout the City of Pompeii. I would highly recommend Fabrizio.

This was a fantastic tour. Michele was an outstanding guide and told us so many interesting things about Pompeii. He was knowledgeable and passionate about the site and it came through in his presentation. We we’re met early and the 3 hours flew by. I can’t imagine seeing Pompeii any other way. Without Michele’s knowledge and insight we would have missed so much of what was literally right in front of us or under our feet.

We had the best time of our lives on this tour. It was simply breathtaking and we loved our driver Francesco Scarico he made our trip memorable and highly recommend him. We also went to Pompeii and had the best guide Jasmine she was wonderful and made our vacation unforgettable!!

Paola was the best tour guide we could ask for! She answered all our questions and explained every small detail in the ground, to the mountains around. She was so knowledgeable about the volcano, eruption, excavation, and preservation process. Thank you for the best tour!

Pompeii was incredible and a private tour with Andrea was perfect. We were able to ask many questions, go at our own pace, and get a lot of details on the rich history of Pompei.

It was a fascinating tour with Diego, an excellent guide. My twin daughters (12) had a fantastic time. We can definetely recommend the tour!
