Full description
Travel back in time to the devastating day in 79 AD the brooding volcano of Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried the Roman city of Pompeii beneath molten ash.  On arrival, your expert guide will take you on a 2-hour tour through the remains of this UNESCO world heritage site remarkably frozen in time for almost 2,000 years. One of the most popular destinations in the world, you will hear stories about the Forum, Thermal Baths, Vetti’s House, and the Lupanare.  Following a typical Naples lunch of pizza at one of Pompeii’s cafés, you will then be driven close to the summit of the mountain that destroyed it. From there, it's just a walk to the lip of the crater. The only active volcano in continental Europe, Vesuvius has erupted many times, but it was the destruction of Pompeii and its surrounding towns that made it most famous. Climb to the top, and walk around the crater, taking in the atmosphere of the smoking mountain. Enjoy the stunning views over the Bay of Naples. You will return to Naples at approximately 5:00 PM, where you will be dropped off at your hotel, the cruise ship, or the railway station.

    The tour to Pompei was excellent, our guide was super helpful and explained everything in proper English.The food was decent and after that they drived us to Vezuvious.There we have some time to reach the cratere but we had no guide and we needed more time to enjoy the view. Overall we recommend the tour.

    I chose "pick up at the hotel" but no one showed up or called me. After we waited 30 mins we decided to called them (they said they will arrived between 9:30-10:00), they told us to wait at other place. However I don't understand why no one send the message or email me to inform me about that. The transport car is really good comfortable with air conditioner.

    Francesca and Alex were excellent guides and I would recommend the full day Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius excursion. From the time they picked us up at our hotel to the transitions of the tour from one guide to another to the time they dropped us back at the hotel was seamless. The guide itself was great because all guests had their own radio with earpiece to hear the tour without struggled to hear or using one radio with speaker. That was an added bonus. Francesca is great with kids and includes them in the tour to keep them engaged. The lunch they served was great. The pizza was good and refreshing beverage offered.
