A fun day tour to meet new friends and backpackers aged between 18 and 39 to discover Naples and Pompeii with local guides. Hop aboard your train in Rome in the morning, then head to the historic city of Pompeii. Along the way, listen as your guide sheds light on the horrific eruption that ended life there in the city in 79 AD.
On arrival in Pompeii, enjoy two hours to explore the site at your leisure. Use your map to explore at your own pace and take in key landmarks such as the Forum, the temples and markets for which the site is famous. Entry tickets to the site and maps will be provided. You will be able to hire some audioguides or organise a guided tour with a licensed tour guide with us. In Pompeii you will also be able to join your tour leader for lunch and eat the famous Italian pizza.
Travel onward to Naples — widely considered among Italy’s prettiest coastal cities. Follow your guide through the historic streets and squares before leaving you for some free time to wander around and soak up the atmosphere or visiting some of the famous museums at your own time. We will walk through the the old city centre passing by Spaccanapoli street, San Gregorio market and Piazza del Gesù. If there is still time we will continue towards Piazza Plebiscito, San Carlo's Theatre, Umberto I the gallery, Maschio Angioino and lots more. There is a lot of walking involved so be ready to sweat your pizza off.
As you explore, gain insight into Naples’ rich history and colorful culture, and perhaps give yourself a sweet treat with the famous Rhum Babà. When your time in seaside Naples is at an end, return in comfort to Rome to conclude your tour.
