Tour guide at Naples and Pompeii was just adequate. Hard to understand and did a lot of “filler” by repeating the same point in more than one way.

I rated 4 out of 5 as I went with my mum by wheelchair and we were told there was a wheelchair accessible path and the staff of Pompeii send us the wrong direction. Therefore we got stuck and once we found the path it was not clearly signed so that was a total nightmare which made this quite a stressful day trip as we only had 2 hrs at the ruins... The lunch was fine; 1 drink 1pizza (choice of 3) and a desert. Careful though, extra drink is 4euro and alcoholic beverages 10euro. And be aware Pompeii's entrances (is a big square in front of the entrances) is like Disney land, they try to sell you everything for super high prices!! But really, on the positive side; Andrea the driver and David the tour guide were AMAZING!! They took such good care of everyone of us, David speaks like 10 languages and Andrea is an EPIC driver who will get you safely to Pompeii and back. All in all I recommend this experience and I would book it again, but without the disappointment I experienced this first time.

Tour Itinerary

Tour duration: 12 hours

Begin your journey along the Highway of the Sun, driving past the famous Roman countryside, the Castelli Romani. Admire incredible views of the Mediterranean and Mount Vesuvius, as well as countless historic sites.

The first stop is in Naples. This Mediterranean city is famous for its rich history, art, culture and gastronomy. You’ll drive up the Vomero hill for a view over the town which overlooks the bay of Naples and extends from the Sorrento peninsula to volcanic area of Phlegrean fields. The skyline is dominated by the majestic and still active volcano Vesuvius. This is the perfect spot to take photos of this stunning landmark.

Driving down towards the port of Mergellina, travel south towards Mount Vesuvius and the town of Pompeii.

After a traditional Pizza lunch, make your way to the UNESCO Archaeological Site of Pompeii with skip-the-line tickets. Spend the afternoon exploring this once thriving city frozen in time by layers of volcanic 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, enjoy the scenery on the drive back to Rome, returning in time to enjoy an evening in Rome.

The tour ends near Santa Maria degli Angeli e Martiri Church – (Metro A Line, Repubblica stop)

6:30 AM - Hotel pick-ups begin (if this option is selected)
