Our Pompeii from Naples tour is the best option for travelers who have dreamt of visiting this famous UNESCO World Heritage Site but have limited vacation time. Departing directly from Naples in the comfort of a private coach you’ll enjoy a full 2-hour expertly guided visit to the ruins of Pompeii on this unique excursion.
When Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD it left a flourishing city in ruin, but it also captured a day in the life of a Pompeian forever fossilized – turning what once was tragic into modern day magic. These ominous ruins, immortalized in pumice and ash, have quite literally allowed history to be frozen in time. Like no other experience on Earth, you’ll enjoy a fully-guided 2-hour tour of an absolutely awe-inspiring archeological area. Walk among the stone-slabbed streets where Pompeian villagers and aristocrats alike once went about their daily activities.
Follow your expert local guide as they recreate the hustle and bustle of this once-busy port town, explaining what each building was used for, where families ate their meals, did laundry and socialized – and where sailors went when they docked. They’ll recreate for you the final days of Pompeii as you examine the harrowing death casts scattered around these ruins at the foot of Mt. Vesuvius.
Explore their homes, including domuses (residences of the ancient elite), and marvel at the brightly painted frescoes and marvelous mosaics. Your guide will bring these relics back to life through rich, entertaining and educating stories and commentary, including details only locals would know.
Once you’ve seen it all, we’ll give you a short break for souvenir shopping or perhaps a spot of coffee from the authentic artisans and local vendors.
If you’d like to extend your day discovering the marvels that are at your fingertips just south of Naples, our Pompeii and Sorrento Tour from Naples includes the same visit to Pompeii, plus an incredible afternoon filled with the narrow streets and breathtaking views that have made the town of Sorrento so famous.
