Full description
With this round trip private transfer between Naples and Pompeii, you can explore the ancient city of Pompeii on your own without having to worry about public transportation time schedules.  Maybe you didn't already know, but much of the site's value lies in the fact that the town wasn't simply blown away by Vesuvius in 79 AD but buried under a layer of lapilli (burning fragments of pumice stone). The result is a remarkably well-preserved slice of ancient life, where you can walk down Roman streets and snoop around millennia-old houses, temples, shops, cafes, amphitheaters and even a brothel. Pompeii was rediscovered in 1748, when excavations began, and through the different centuries more and more parts of the city have been unearthed.  Watch your step as you go around visiting the temples and theatres, as excavations continually take place in the site and you might even discover something that is yet unknown.

The guide was fascinating. The very friendly driver. What is going less well is to announce "a superb half day in Pompeii" of 3:30, while the visit itself of Pompeii is ultimately reduced to 2 hours after having deducted 1 hour for the return trip Naples-Pompeii and an unexpected 1/2 hour to cool off in Pompeii!
