8:00 AM
24 hours after the booking you will receive an email with the pickup time and the meeting instructions
After morning pickup from locations in central Naples, relax during the scenic drive to Pompeii. 

Begin with a walking tour of the ruins of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, stopping to see the thermal baths, racy paintings in the Lupanare, the Basilica, Macellum (market square), and the formerly opulent residence known as the House of Faun. Your guide shares informative commentary about life in old Pompeii and the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. 

After your time at the ruins, enjoy a delicious pizza lunch or wine tasting (option selected at checkout). Next up, rejoin your driver and travel up Mt. Vesuvius to 3,280 feet (1,000 meters). Disembark there and follow your guide up a winding path that leads to the top of the volcano (this is a moderately challenging walk). Peer into the volcano crater and learn about the geology of the volcano from a volcanologist guide.

Please note that the admission fees at both sites are at your own expense.

Your tour ends with return to your starting point in Naples in the late afternoon.
Itinerary
Pass By:  
Pompeii Archaeological Park
Take the chance to visit in only 2 hours the ruins of the Roman city of Pompeii, the vast archaeological area under the UNESCO patronage.
Pass By:  
Forum
The Forum was the centre of Pompeii when it was first founded and even after the city's enlargement, when it could hardly be called 'central', it remained the focus of political, economic and religious life.
Pass By:  
Stabian Baths (Terme Stabiane)
The Stabian Baths take their name from the fact that they lie at the intersection of the Via Stabiana and the Via dell'Abbondanza. They are the oldest baths in Pompeii and four different building phases can be identified.
Pass By:  
Tempio di Giove Capitolino
The Temple of Jupiter, dedicated to the Capitoline triad of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva, dominates the north side of the Forum.
Pass By:  
Macellum
The Macellum, or food market, stands in the north-east corner of the Forum. The complex, built in the imperial age as a covered market, had a large number of shops on its periphery on the Via degli Augustali and on the Forum as well as on the inside under a colonnade around its large internal court.
Pass By:  
Vesuvius National Park
Painted over the centuries by various artists, Mt. Vesuvius is the natural landmark of the Bay of Naples. This volcano is a "must-see" sightseeing place for each tourist.

Overall it was a nice tour. We did not see all main attractions at Pompeii. Our guide although good was not loud enough so we missed quite a bit of information especially when another guide or visitors were talking near us.

Thr whole day was absolutely AMAZING!!! The tour guide we had for the ruins of Pompeii was lovely. Her name was Anna. She was one of the best tour guides we experienced throughout the whole holiday. I cannot thank her enough. The tour of Pompeii was eye opening and it cleared up any questions you had. The hike up mount vesuvius was amazing also as you got to do it in your own time with the views being unreal.

Pompeii and Vesuvius were great! History come to life. The tour itself was not very informative (beyond the basics), was a bit disorganized, and had a unscheduled stop trying to get us to buy limoncello and kitsch. It was good overall but not a trip I would recommend.

Cool day trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius

It was very nice trip. The bus picked us up from Naples on time. (There are a couple of locations you can choose from and that's why the bus might be a bit late for the last locations, if other people are not exactly on time or there is traffic jam). First we visited Pompeii where we had a guided tour (it took around 2 hours). After that we went to a restaurant for our pizza lunch, there is also a place with nice view to the coastline. After the lunch we went to Vesuvius (We had around 1.5 h to go up, enjoy the view and go back to the bus). On the way back we had the chance to visit a local shop and taste some limoncello and other products. The mood was great thanks to our guides and bus driver. Thank you!

WOW! A great tour! A MUST DO!

Everything was fantastic! We had transportation that was close to our hotel which took us to the starting point of the tour. Very nice transportation, and a very manageable small group. The tour was broken down into 2 parts. Each part was well organized, meeting a guide at each location. We took the wine tasting luncheon (1 of the 2 choices) and highly recommended. It was very nice because the guides did a great job explaining everything and allowing time to explore on our own.

Pompeii has such amazing historic significance and it was bigger than what I had thought. The guide was great and funny. Mt. Vesuvius is huge and although the walk up was a bit steep for me And it took me 45 mins - it was worth it. The views from top are amazing. Overall an amazing experience.

Great guides that made up feel welcome and informed. The tour was well organized as well. I didn’t love the initial drop off to the Camei store, but easy enough to say no to the hard sell of the jewelry.

Shuttle service, not tour
Debbie_S
, Jun 2022
Sounds great on paper, but fell way short in execution. It was really just a shuttle bus to the 3 locations, little to no information was shared along the way. No clear guidance on timing, next steps, what to expect along the way. I am used to tours providing commentary and explains next steps along the way. Did not get to see the artifacts in Pompeii. Guide never took us to that area. When we realized the World Tour guide was taking us out, we asked. His sarcastic answer was that we could go to a hospital if we wanted to see dead bodies. Then he brushed us off saying he was not in charge of what we saw inside and our Pompeii guide was already gone. Received one bottle of warm water at 8 am. Lunch was about 2 pm after Pompeii and hiking Vesuvius. We ended up purchasing 6 bottles of cold water and several other drinks along the way to keep ourselves hydrated for all the hiking. Sites are worth seeing, Very expensive for the shuttle service provided.

History that needs telling, and a bl@@dy steep hill :)

Great day trip, well organised and paced. Gosy was a brilliant tour guide, expertly driven by Nando (the greatest driver in Naples). Got to Pompeii early (0930) to miss the heat and the crowds. Pompeii tour guide Anna was brilliant. Great lunch and limoncello tasting. Well worth the money. Just be prepared for the final walk up Vesuvius……but we’ll worth the effort.

Tour was great. BUT- on the way back, tour guide and bus driver decided not to drop us off at our hotel because “there was too much traffic” - so they dropped us off 2 miles from our hotel and were told to find our own way back 😨

Good but needs to get the timings sorted
Kitty_L

Very knowledgeable guide and pick up from cruise port was easy, however timings were completely off. Cruise was to depart at 4.30 and the tour was meant to finish at 3. We didn't get back until 4.10 which made all the cruise passengers really anxious.
