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 (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.

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 Pompeii—a UNESCO World Heritage Site and former Roman city. Follow your guide on a tour, and learn the history of the area. See the Forum and Teatro Grande as you go. Afterward, take a break before making your way 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 when Mt. Vesuvius is closed, you take a guided tour of Naples. Your tour ends with a ride back to Rome.

Tour was excellent. Alessandra, our guide was very friendly and helpful. Antonio, the driver was very courteous too. Unfortunately, due to covid restrictions, Alessandra was not allowed to come into Pompeii, though she took us to the entrance and sorted our tickets in advance.
