Pompeii Ruins & Mt Vesuvius Volcano Day Trip from Rome

4,446 reviews
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 (summer only) and explore Pompeii with a guide, discovering lesser-known historical info as you go, and don’t worry about entrance fees they are included.

In the current Covid-19 one way system, you can absolutely explore Pompeii beyond the set route, especially in the direction of the Amphitheatre, but we failed to find an open route to the Villa dei Misteri. We tried multiple ways, but everything was blocked off. For those interested, unfortunately we also could not enter the House of the Vettii. We were able to walk up to it and peek at the entrance way (worth it!). The floor was covered and we could see workers inside, so this may have been ordinary scheduled archaeological work, and may have been nothing to do with Covid. It may be temporary, but I was disappointed to not see the Cinnabar.

We had a private guide, which I highly recommend when visiting the site, who took us there. The frescoes are indescribable. The most amazing are details about life, food, plants and animals they apparently had at this vibrant location at the time.

This is off the beaten track in the Pompei Archeological Park and quite a walk to reach but well worth it. There are many wall paintings, frescoes and mosaic floors in this House Of Mysteries. Mystifying!

We had time so Michael, our private guide, made special stop here. The vila is beautiful but the painting inside more so.

A 20 minutes walk from the core of Pompei, this complex houses a stunning collection of frescoes still in their places (while many other Pompei frescoes have been translated to the archaeological museum). What can be seen is simply splendid and I hope that in the future visitors will have access to more araeas. An incredible visit.Entrance is included in the general ticket for the site of Pompei. Dirty cheap for what can be seen and visited and so expensive to protect.
