  • Important Information

Start your day with a pickup from your central Rome hotel or alternatively, start your tour at a meeting point in town, near Rome Termini Station. Hit the road and travel south to Italy’s Campania region, and as you gaze out at the pretty landscape of Castelli Romani look out for Abbey of Montecassino -- a spectacular Benedictine monastery perched atop of a hill.

After a journey of roughly three hours, arrive in the southern Italian region of Campania and head straight to its capital Naples to discover its delights from the comfort of your coach, ( a panoramic view of Naples).


Leave the city, and travel south toward Mount Vesuvius, passing the towns of Ercolano (Herculaneum), Torre del Greco and Torre Annunziata before arriving in the town of Pompeii. Stop for a well-earned lunch in one of the town’s traditional restaurants, and then head out to visit Pompeii’s UNESCO-listed ruins on a 2-hour walking tour. Learn how the ancient city lay buried under Mount Vesuvius’ volcanic ash for centuries and see incredible excavations of old monuments, like Teatro Grande -- a theater that once seated 5,000 people.

After your tour, head back to your coach and then travel north back to Rome. Your tour finishes back at the start point near Termini Station. Alternatively, you can make use of a drop-off at Via Veneto, Piazza Barberini, Piazza Venezia or Piazza della Repubblica; simply let your guide know on the day.

    Short but excellent time in Pompeii. Enough shade that even in 90 degree summer heat it was doable. The bay of Naples is beautiful. At the end of the day, a group spending the night in Sorrento departed on a separate van and we went back to the city. Wish I could have gone with them, haha. I wish the tour would stop for photo op with all of the sunflower fields you end up driving by. They offered drop offs on the way back which saved us metro fare. I appreciated it! We bought a much needed coffee at the early morning meeting spot. A long day but well worth it.

    This tour was a great experience. The short tour through Napoli leaves us with the desire for more of it but the Pompei tour compensates all of it. We made several friends in the bus (recommended). Our Pompei guide was Nandio and though old he managed us very well and was fun and entertaining.

    This was a great tour and the lunch was also great. I didn't like having to stop at the place to sell us alchohol and trinkets.
