Overview
While vacationing in Rome, spend time away from the big city without doing a ton of planning on a guided tour of Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. Hike to Mt. Vesuvius' crater and explore Pompeii with a guide, discovering lesser-known historical info as you go, and don’t worry about lunch or entrance fees because pizza and admission are both included.
What to Expect
Your tour of Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius starts with pickup in central Rome. 
Board an air-conditioned vehicle, and make the ride over to Mt. Vesuvius. At Mt. Vesuvius, your guide leads you on a hike to the top of the old volcano. At the top, catch sight of the Bay of Naples, and sights inside the crater. Please note from late November to late March, you’ll explore the National Archaeological Museum of Pompeii instead of the short hike. 
Afterward, take a break and enjoy a pizza lunch before making your way over to Pompeii—a UNESCO World Heritage Site and former Roman city.
Once you arrive in Pompeii, follow your guide on a tour, and learn the history of the area. See the Forum and Teatro Grande as you go.
Your tour ends with a ride back to Rome.

It was even better than I expected. We started off by driving to Mount Vesuvius. Once we got there, we got time to climb to the top and enjoy the view before we headed down the mountain once more and had dinner at a restaurant...More

The trip was amazing, if you love history, your mind will be overwhelmed. But the best part of our trip was our outstanding tour guide, Sean, he was informative, polite, engaging, funny, and a really hard working person.

Although I loved the tour it was hot! Try not to do this around July or August. Very interesting and informative. The tour guides made it so much more real and made this one of my favorites tours taken.

The drive time is approximately 3 hours each way with a rest stop after 1.5 hours. It is mostly highway travel until you get to Mt. Vesuvius.

I would say so... it’s a path all the way to the top and he can get an ice cream at the top! It’s just a long day overall for little ones but having experienced it I would be happy to take a 4 year old.

Yes I think you could. I’d email the tour company to double check though.
