Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin your trip with pickup from your select Naples hotel and hop aboard your coach toward Pompeii. Once buried under a blanket of ash from Mount Vesuvius’ eruption in 79 AD, the city wasn't unearthed until the 18th century.

    As you enter (own expense), follow your guide through the ruins and learn the fascinating history behind the ancient city. Pass excavations of the Teatro Grande, which once housed up to 5,000 spectators, and the Forum.

    Continue to a family-run corals and cameo factory to learn more about the jewelry-making process. Afterward, walk to the 18th-century Ristorante Vesuvio for a delicious, Italian-style lunch.

    Journey next to the coastal town of Ercolana, where the ruins of Herculaneum reside, another town struck during the infamous eruption. Though Pompeii is more widely-known, Herculaneum hosts a wealth of archaeological treasures. Enter (own expense) and explore at leisure, admiring the ancient monuments, preserved mosaics and fossils nearly 2,000 years old.

    Your day trip will conclude with transportation back to your original departure point.

    This is a terrible tour! The biggest issue is that they cut the Herculaneum tour short ONE AND A HALF HOURS because one couple said they needed to catch an early connection, however it was made very clear at the beginning that everyone needed to make sure they had time for the

    I went on a Tuesday in October. The weather was mild and the crowds were not too bad. I strongly recommend visiting both sites as they are both amazing. 2 hours in each site is better than spending 4 hours at one or the other. These sites should be bucket list items for anyone

    I spoke with a friend who had visited Pompeii a few years back. He asked " Did you take that hot smelly train?" I said, "No, I had a wonderful air conditioned bus with great guides." Your service was above and beyond. We bought the lunch package. The food was outstanding.
