What to expect

Visit Pompeii in half a day – saving over 4h of transport when comparing with bus tours!

This half-day tour will depart from Termini Station in Rome, where you will meet your tour operator assistant and receive your train tickets - let us take care of all seating arrangements, so that you can relax and enjoy your 1-hour trip to Naples. During the ride, enjoy the gorgeous scenery in the comfort of your air-conditioned, high-speed train.

Your local, expert guide will welcome you as soon as you arrive in Naples. Enjoy your short, exclusive private coach transfer to reach the excavation site of Pompeii where you will meet your official English-speaking guide. Here you will takepart in a 2-hour fully guided tour of the ruins of the Roman town of Pompeii. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pompeii is considered one of the most fascinating archeological sites in the world. Here time stopped in 79 AD, when mount Vesuvius covered people, streets and homes with ashes, capturing the everyday life of Roman people, as well as the tragedy of that moment, for eternity. Your guide will help you understand how the Romans lived during those times, and you will find out the well-preserved fossils and ruins that have been buried here for centuries.

You will also have the unique opportunity to explore the recently-opened Domus (homes of the ancient city’s most influential people) and after a short coffee break or local souvenir shopping, you will meet an English-speaking driver who will accompany you on the way to back to Naples, and he will stay with you until your departure to Rome onboard a high-speed train.

The coach will take you to the train station where your English-speaking driver will take care of all seating arrangements to ensure you will have a comfortable, safe and relaxing trip back with enough golden hours remaining to enjoy the rest of the day in the Eternal City.
