What to expect

Visit Pompeii in half a day – saving hours of time compared to bus tours!

This half-day tour will depart from Termini Station in Rome, where you will meet your tour coordinator and receive your train tickets - let us take care of all seating arrangements so that you can relax and enjoy your 1-hour trip to Naples. During the ride, enjoy the gorgeous scenery in the comfort of your air-conditioned, high-speed train.

Your local, expert guide will welcome you as soon as you arrive in Naples. Enjoy your short, exclusive private coach transfer to reach the excavation site of Pompeii where you will meet your official English-speaking guide. Here you will take part in a 2-hour fully guided tour of the ruins of the ancient city of Pompeii. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pompeii is considered one of the most fascinating archaeological sites in the world. Here, time stopped in 79 AD, when Mt. Vesuvius erupted and covered people, streets and homes with its lava, capturing the lives of its inhabitants and the tragedy of that moment for eternity. Your guide will help you understand how the citizens lived prior to the eruption, and you will discover the ruins and death casts that have been preserved here for centuries.

You will also have the unique opportunity to explore the recently-opened Domus (homes of the ancient city’s most influential people) and after a short coffee break or local souvenir shopping, you will meet your driver who will accompany you back to Naples, who will stay with you until your departure to Rome on a high-speed train.

The coach will take you to the train station, where your English-speaking driver will take care of all arrangements to ensure that you have a comfortable, safe and relaxing trip back. You will have enough golden hours remaining to enjoy the rest of the day in the Eternal City.
