Full description
With this round-trip shuttle service between Rome and Pompeii, you can explore the ancient city of Pompeii on your own or with a guide without having to worry about transportation. Buried after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius more than 20 centuries ago, creating a shower of burning cinders and rock fragments that covered the city, the remains of Pompeii are one of the best preserved ancient cities in the world. Populated with frescoes and monuments you will be able to explore a city as it was back in the days of the Roman Empire. Pompeii was rediscovered in 1748, when excavations began, and through the different centuries more and more parts of the city have been unearthed. Watch your step as you go around visiting the temples and theaters, as excavations continually take place in the site and you might even discover something yet unknown!

The guide in the bus was good. The guide at Pompeii was friendly and seemed knowledgeable but all 4 of us found her English very hard to understand. We maybe got 40% of what she said. I don't regret the trip but I'm not sure I'd recommend it either because it's so much bus time relative to actual exploration time.

An excellent tour. Nice and comforting with air condition and breakfaststop. The tourguide was excellent and you will get all the information you'll need from å very helpful guide. The guide gave us a map and pointet out the most important places to see in Pompei, cause we did'nt get the time to see it all. On the way back the guide recomaned other places worth seeing om Rome. We're very satisfyed with this trip.

More than just a bus service

We booked this Pompeii shuttle just a couple of days before realising we could squeeze in a day trip to Pompeii - seemed easier than the train and fair price. The pick up was well organised and we had a great guide who gave us lots of information along the route. As we reached Pompeii she gave everyone maps of the site and highlighted the must sees for those not taking a guided tour. She led us into the site, introduced us to tour guide and met us when it was time to go back to the bus. The bus itself was comfortable and we had a short stop either way for toilet/refreshments etc. Facilities at both stops were surprisingly good - on the return journey the stop had an excellent shop selling Italian produce. Would recommend the shuttle - was hassle free and great on a hot day to simply jump on the bus and get straight back to Rome.
