Experience the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pompeii on this convenient half-day tour from Naples. Skip the hassle of train or rental-car travel with included transportation from Naples. Once you arrive, breeze through the crowds with priority entry into the popular archaeological park. Follow your guide and listen to in-depth commentary on the highlights of the site, including the frescoed walls of Vetti’s house, the brothel, baths, and piazza.
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.
