What you can expect

Travel from Rome to one of the most famous archaeological sites, the incredible ancient city of Pompeii, where you will enjoy a Skip-the-Line access, in a comfortable air-conditioned private coach, entertained all the way by your expert English-speaking tour leader.

The eruption in AD 79 spelled a fiery end for Pompeii, but the catastrophe also almost perfectly preserved the port city under layers of Volcanic ash. Thousands of years later, you can still explore the eerie streets and step inside homes, bathhouses, fast food places and outdoor theatres. As you walk independently, it won’t be difficult to imagine the hustle and bustle of this once-busy port town!

Our day trip doesn’t end here, a short coach ride and a half-mile hike from the car park takes you to the sometimes still-steaming crater of Mt. Vesuvius. Stand at the epicentre of that ancient disaster and feel awe at the utter devastation it must have caused. Then, turn and enjoy the contrast: the crater offers the most stunning view of the sun-drenched Bay of Naples.

In winter and when the Mt. Vesuvius is closed for hiking, your coach will follow the coastline to Naples, the beautiful “city by the bay”. Naples sits in an incredible natural context crowned by Mt. Vesuvius, continental Europe’s only active volcano, the islands of Capri and Ischia, not to mention this ancient city’s baroque domes and architecture.

You’ll have ample free time to walk around the city centre, to take in the atmosphere of this buzzing city, with its iconic Castle Nuovo, also called Maschio Angioino, one of the symbols of the city, the famous Umberto I Gallery, an art deco masterpiece of glass and iron, the monumental Plebiscito Square, where you may want to savour an authentic Neapolitan coffee or some of the delicious local pastries, while watching the world go by.
