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

Join us on this amazing journey through space and time, entering Pompeii: a unique document of Greco-Roman life.

We will begin our journey along the Highway of the Sun, driving past the famous Roman countryside, the Castelli Romani. Admire an incredible views of the Mediterranean and Mount Vesuvius, as well as to countless historic sites. You will enjoy a short sight of the City, 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 vulcanic 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.
