Pompeii and 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 forty-minute drive, we'll arrive at Pompeii, one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. Following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius on the 24th August 79 AD, the inhabitants of the town were forever buried and along with 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.

With the guided visit of Pompeii concluded, we will 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 will return by bus to Naples, arriving by 5 pm.

Language

  • 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.
