No trip to Italy is complete without seeing what the tragic city of Pompeii reveals about ancient life. However, few can fit it in without transport. Our relaxing day trip to Pompeii from Rome will take you on a climate-controlled bus on the Highway of the Sun to discover the south of Italy.

Skip the Lines into the tragic city of Pompeii

From start to finish you’ll have an English-speaking tour leader with you who is an expert in this region of Italy. In this acclaimed UNESCO World Heritage Site, your Tour Leaders will deal with the lines and the entrance tickets while you take in your first view of the half-buried city encased in rubble and ash.

After skipping the lines you’ll meet your own personal archaeologist. They’ll guide you along the paved streets that have been preserved for 1500 years under 20ft of volcanic ash. Unlike a museum, you’ll be able to enter the homes, baths, food stores and outdoor theaters which have preserved so much of ancient life.

Hike to the crater of Mt. Vesuvius or enjoy Positano

After exploring Pompeii the coach will carry you up the slope of Mt. Vesuvius (from April to early-November), one of the few active volcanoes in Europe. From here, you can take the short walk up to the steaming crater for views of Capri and Sorrento.

Mt. Vesuvius is closed during the winter so your coach will follow the coastline to Positano (from early-November to March). Here you will enjoy some lovely free time, and it’s up to you how you spend that time. Whether you want to relax on the stunning beaches, tiptoe through winding streets, shop for local souvenirs… the opportunities are endless.

Whatever time of the year you come to Italy, make sure you do not miss out on our full range of Pompeii Tours.
