Tour Overview
On an unforgettable journey through time and space, this day trip from Rome brings you to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pompeii where you can skip-the-line with a local guide. These ancient ruins offer a unique look into the Greco-Roman life, architecture, and your guide will highlight the history of the neighboring Mount Vesuvius' eruption that buried the city in stones and ash (23 feet deep in some places).

Departing from Rome in the morning, we will make our way along the Highway of the Sun, driving past the famous Castelli Romani and Roman countryside. Catch glimpses of the breathtaking Mediterranean Sea and the looming Mount Vesuvius as we make our way to the city of Naples. Our first stop will be a panoramic city tour of Naples, visiting the seashore and the Gulf of Naples.

The first stop is Naples, one of the most enchanting cities in the Mediterranean famous worldwide for its rich history, art, culture and gastronomy, where you will take a short panoramic tour to discover its beauty from the comfort of your coach climbing up the Vomero hill. The town overlooks the bay of Naples which extends from the Sorrento peninsula to volcanic area of Phlegrean fields, and the skyline is dominated by the majestic and still active volcano Vesuvius, offering an impressive sight perfect to take stunning pictures.

Descending towards the port of Mergellina, you will leave the city and travel south towards Mount Vesuvius and, once you reach the town of Pompeii, you will have the chance to enjoy lunch with a real Neapolitan pizza!

After stopping for a traditional Pizza lunch, we will make our way to the UNESCO Archaeological Site of Pompeii with skip-the-line tickets. We will spend the afternoon exploring this once thriving city that was frozen in time by layers of volcanic ash. Pompeii remained buried under a layer of pumice stones and ash 19 to 23 feet (6 to 7 meters) deep. The city’s sudden burial served to protect it for the next 17 centuries from vandalism, looting and the destructive effects of climate and heavy weather.

After the tour of Pompeii, we will resume our trip through the Roman countryside, enjoying the scenery as we leisurely make our way back to Rome. Return in time to enjoy the rest of the night in Rome at your leisure.
