Experience the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pompeii on this convenient half-day tour from Naples. Skip the hassle of train or rental-car travel with included transportation from Naples. Once you arrive, breeze through the crowds with priority entry into the popular archaeological park. Follow your guide and listen to in-depth commentary on the highlights of the site, including the frescoed walls of Vetti’s house, the brothel, baths, and piazza.

What to Expect

Start with convenient pickup at your Naples hotel. This half-day tour’s early departure means you’ll be one of the first to enter Pompeii, and you’ll return to Naples with time for exploration.

Meet your guide and minibus, from which you’ll take in the scenery while your guide handles the driving.

After a short drive, you’ll disembark for priority entry into the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Learn about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which spewed ash and trapped people and buildings under tons of volcanic debris. Your guide will take you through the preserved piazza, baths, houses, and streets to learn about life in this prosperous Roman-era city.

The tour’s exact route depends on the crowd and weather, but expect to see highlights such as the luxury residence Casa Vetti, Lupanare, Pompeii’s brothel, thermal baths, Forum, and Via degli Augustali.

Your tour ends with stress-free drop-off at your Naples hotel.

I think having a guide helped greatly as I would have missed iconic sites unaided. There was a sense of dignity and respect to those who died. I was surprised by the size of Pompeii, despite having read up before the visit. I'd give 5...More

This tour really only takes 2 hours, there is a drive that makes it 3 hours and the remaining hour is wasted standing around while guides try to coordinate. People were switched back and forth by guides, lots of back and forth between guides about...More

We walked off the terminal across to the bus area and purchased tickets for Pompeii and Vesuvius about 25 euro each. Hire a phone guide, 8 euro and walk the tour alone. We are 70 plus and loved it.
