Full description
Travel back in time to the devastating day in 79 AD the brooding volcano of Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried the Roman city of Pompeii beneath molten ash.  On arrival, your expert guide will take you on a 2-hour tour through the remains of this UNESCO world heritage site remarkably frozen in time for almost 2,000 years. One of the most popular destinations in the world, you will hear stories about the Forum, Thermal Baths, Vetti’s House, and the Lupanare. 

Following a typical Naples lunch of pizza at one of Pompeii’s cafés, you will then be driven close to the summit of the mountain that destroyed it. From there, it's just a walk to the lip of the crater.

The only active volcano in continental Europe, Vesuvius has erupted many times, but it was the destruction of Pompeii and its surrounding towns that made it most famous. Climb to the top, and walk around the crater, taking in the atmosphere of the smoking mountain. Enjoy the stunning views over the Bay of Naples.

You will return to Naples at approximately 5:00 PM, where you will be dropped off at your hotel, the cruise ship, or the railway station.

Really great guides with a wealth of local knowledge. Great value for money as once you factor in the entry costs, the bus rides, the food, you would pay about the same to do it without a guide! Could have done with 15 minutes less time at the lunch, and 15 minutes more in the historical city. Enjoyed the day though! Don't hesitate to book.

It is essential to go with a guide. In 2 hours and 30 minutes they explain 25% of the city but it is essential. Example, there are 5 hot springs and you will only see one. But well explained. Going around the city seeing ruins is simply wasting time, in my opinion. The super friendly guide and explains everything great. Perhaps, once Pompeii + Vesuvius was done, it would take 4-5 hours in Pompeii with rest to eat and would not go up to Vesuvius. But of course, I say that because I have already climbed and maybe I had a city to see.
