Pompeii Half-day Trip from Naples

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
Discover the ancient Roman city of Pompeii — a UNESCO World Heritage site — on this 4-hour tour from Naples. Following your hotel pickup and onward minibus travel to Pompeii, enjoy fast track entry with your guide and explore Italy's most famous archaeological site. Hear of the horrific Mount Vesuvius eruption that coated the city in volcanic ash. See the town’s ancient piazza and Forum, the thermal baths and Pompeii’s ancient brothel, the Lupanare, and discover Pompeii’s haunting highlights.
  • Priority access and morning entry helps beat the crowds at Pompeii
  • Listen as your guide recreates Roman-era Pompeii life before the eruption
  • Round-trip transportation from Naples hotel eliminates the hassle of driving
  • Half-day tour of Pompeii allows for exploring Naples in the afternoon
What to Expect
Start with convenient pickup at your Naples hotel. This half-day tour’s early departure means you’ll be one of the first to enter Pompeii, and you’ll return to Naples with time for exploration. Meet your guide and minibus, from which you’ll take in the scenery while your guide handles the driving. After a short drive, you’ll disembark for priority entry into the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Learn about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which spewed ash and trapped people and buildings under tons of volcanic debris. Your guide will take you through the preserved piazza, baths, houses, and streets to learn about life in this prosperous Roman-era city. The tour’s exact route depends on the crowd and weather, but expect to see highlights such as the luxury residence Casa Vetti, Lupanare, Pompeii’s brothel, thermal baths, Forum, and Via degli Augustali. Your tour ends with stress-free drop-off at your Naples hotel.

The guide group was efficient at moving a large group around. The local guide was knowledgeable and nice. But the group size was forty people, so if you want a smaller group size then this one may not be for you.

I'm for sure that they do. You just put in the address where you need to be picked up, and that is where they fetch you. Our hotel was right there at the port (like literally three blocks from it), and that is where they... More

That’s a tough question. We didn’t have the same bus that dropped us off, then picked us back up-so I know leaving it with the tour group wouldn’t be an option. I also didn’t see any type of lockers or luggage storage... More
