This was a good tour - overall the guides were very knowledgeable and shared lovely and lively stories this includes our bus ride as well (Thanks Marco y Johnny Jon, Jon). The tour of Naples is okay. it’s a mad dash almost running through the city to get a brief highlight tour.Lunch was in Pompeii at a restaurant, we thought the pizza was good you have 3 choices, a salad, drink and dessert. If you want any added drinks they will cost you. Pompeii, we started in a small gallery outside the ruins with lovey handcrafted art but it is filler and not worth the 30 minutes I would have rather done more walking through Pompeii. I would say the tour of Pompeii is great, we did not feel rushed or shuffled around too quickly and the tour guide offered detailed information was that interesting and brought the ruins alive. We did not get to see some of the big sights we would have liked but they do say it would take several days to see the full city. Overall I would recommend this tour, but if you really dislike large groups, and have a specific agenda for Pompeii probably not what you would be looking for.

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.

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)
