Summary of The Day: Discover Pompeii and the still active Volcano that brought the bustling Roman city to its terrible end in this exclusive day trip from Rome to Pompeii & Vesuvius.
After a comfortable transfer from Rome on an air-conditioned coach, we begin our day high above the city and bay of Naples, on the ridge of the crater of the famous Mount Vesuvius. Infamous for the destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79AD, Vesuvius has erupted many times since and is today regarded as one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world because of the 3,000,000 people living in its immediate vicinity and the volcano's tendency towards explosive eruptions. Lava flows have scarred the sides of the volcano, and are visible on the winding road up to the top. From the parking area, it is a 20 minute upward hike to the crater through soft volcanic ash and pumice and the view from the top is well worth the while.
After our adventurous morning we'll take a leisurely lunch break, where you can experience the world-famous pizza Naples is known for.
When you are ready to go; it's on to the highlight of the day: Pompeii. Sitting in the ominous shadow of Vesuvius, the now ruined city of Pompeii was a sprawling metropolis of shops and residences, restaurants, gyms and brothels. Walk Pompeii's main streets just as the ancient Romans did; the stones are still worn with tracks from the drawn carriages that tread them nearly 2000 years ago. We'll visit the forum, the center of Pompeii's political and social life, as well as view the startling plaster death casts of the victims of the catastrophic eruption that destroyed the city, freezing forever in time their last second of life.
Join us on this comprehensive and fascinating tour of Pompeii & the powerful Volcano that destroyed it and discover why this UNESCO World Heritage Site continues to shock and fascinate the 2.6 million people who venture here each year.

Overall this was a great tour but I think the coach was clean but very tired. Lucca was great and the drive was fantastic
The Pompei and Vesuvius tour was exceptional. The archeological site is big but the local guide really created narratives that helped me picture what life was like in the ancient city. The radio headsets are a lifesaver no struggles to hear... or worries that youll miss something important. Our City Wonders guides Mossimo and Robert were also fantastic. Their enthusiasm for the subject matter was obvious and they encouraged questions both on topic and off. Their lively demeanor seemed to encourage the guests on the tour to be a little more outgoing and outspoken as well. I would definitely recommend this tour - with these guides - to anyone visiting Rome Read full review
Fun well organised and extremely informative tour one of the best tours ever. We have just booked another tour with the company
We loved all of our City Wonders tours but simply found our guides provided less of an experience this time around. Our local Pompeii guide for instance was good as well as informative but was constantly on his iPhone. Our City Wonders guid...e was very informative but was almost condescending at times with his delivery of information. Overall the tour was informative both historically and mythically well planned and most importantly fun and entertaining Read full review
