Pompeii & Vesuvius Day Trip
Lava and ash petrified the citizens of Pompeii, leaving them as a perfect historical record. Get to know the history of the world's most famous volcanic eruption, on this excursion which includes climbing the volcano itself.
Pompeii & Vesuvius Day Trip
Around 10 am, we'll pick you up at your hotel in Naples, the train station or the marina to begin this 7-hour day trip.
Following a 40-minute drive, we'll arrive at Pompeii, one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. Following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius on August 24, 79 AD, the inhabitants of the town were forever buried. Following our guide, we'll visit the buildings which were finally excavated in the 18th century: the forum, the thermal baths, and the theatre, among others. We'll even take a look at the Roman brothel, where various erotic paintings have been found.
After the guided visit of Pompeii, we'll enjoy a lunch of pizza and drinks, and afterwards make our way to Torre del Greco, at the foot of the volcano, to begin our ascent. This ascent is worth the effort, as from its peak you can get some unbeatable views of Naples Bay.
Having descended Vesuvius we'll return by bus to Naples, arriving by 5:30 pm.
- During the bus ride, you can enjoy the explanations of an accompanying guide.
- During the ascent of Mount Vesuvius on foot, you can count on the park's guides, who are available during the ascent to the crater. We can't guarantee that an English-speaking guide will be available for this part of the excursion.
The activity takes place with a guide that speaks in English, although it may occasionally be done in two languages.
