Full description

Travel from Rome to Pompeii in an air-conditioned private bus, accompanied by an archaeologist guide. Benefit from skip-the-line entry and enjoy a guided tour of the ancient city. Throughout the ruins, come across a death cast, a plaster recreation of an unfortunate citizen preserved by the superheated volcanic ash. After visiting Pompeii, drive 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. Explore the iconic Castle Nuovo, the famous art deco Umberto I Gallery, or simply wander around the monumental Plebiscito Square.

Rob who is our tour guide is amazing! The tour is under city wonders and this is my second time with them. It didn’t disappoint at all. When we reached Pompei, local guide Michele was good as well! They are knowledgable and fun! Would join city wonder tour in a heart beat again!

Pompeii is not to be missed. This is a long day, but so worth it. The guides were excellent and made the journey interesting. We stopped at Cassino for breakfast and toilet breaks each way and Naples on the return leg to explore after Pompeii. I really recommend City Tours, having done two tours with them this trip. The guides are excellent and keen to impart personal experiences and their knowledge is fantastic. Really recommend!

Everyone will tell you that you can’t limit Pompeii to just one day (or 2 hours) - and that’s true. BUT! When you’re in Italy/Rome and you have so much to do, this tour is an excellent option. Elena, our guide for Rome, was very knowledgeable and gave a great presentation on the history and ruins of Pompeii, we learned SO MUCH and saw SO MANY cool things!! And our itinerary Guide for the day, Rob, was awesome! He was charismatic and a fantastic story teller! Gave us a bunch of historical facts and mythological tales on the road to and from Naples, as well as some street smarts so that we didn’t get played by the locals and recommendations for both Napoli and Roma. Highly recommend
