Naples to Pompeii & Vesuvius Tour Description

How many times in your life will you be able to say that you walked through an almost perfectly preserved ancient city and then climbed up the volcano that destroyed it in the first place? We are guessing not too many, that’s why we offer this awesome experience of a lifetime. Our driver will pick you up from your boat and bring you to your guide in Pompeii. After a quick lunch, our driver will drive you up to your next guide who will show you the amazing volcano Vesuvius. At the end, our driver will take you back to your boat.


If you are planning to go south, then this archeological wonder should be at the top of your priority list. Our expert tour guide will weave you through this ancient Roman city where quite a few “surprises” will be shown to you. A hint: not all Ancient Romans were Puritans that is for sure!


The Vesuvius volcano has erupted many times over the past 2,000 years, but according to scholars, In the year 79 A.D.This angry volcano supposedly ejected ash more than 20 miles into the air. It also would have covered Pompeii and surrounding areas with a Pumice layer of up to 10 feet high. Now that is impressive. Come check it out, if you dare!

Catacombs was cool but there was no "skip the line"

The location was easy to find. We booked our tickets and there was a "meeting point" about 150 feet away from the entrance. It was a little unclear that we didn't really need the meeting point. We got to the catacombs location and there was a long line for entry. We thought we could "skip the line" as your ticket title suggested but I guess that's for something else. We had to wait in line for the security access to the catacombs which makes sense.

Amazing shore excursion!

We couldn't decide how to spend our day and this was the best way! We loved seeing Pompeii and Vesuvius! Thank you to the Roman Guy!

An exceptional immersion and experience-way beyond a standard tour

We started with a trip to Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius and grew our number of experiences with The Roman Guy up to 5 (Pompeii/Mt. Vesuvius/Rome/Colosseum/Venice and the Vatican City). Each held up to the same standard. The guides are local, and have a knowledge and passion for the areas they showed us. The guide's passion for the area, the knowledge and interest were fantastic. It all started with exceptional booking and then the tours all lived up to our expectations and beyond. Flexible, interesting, fun, exciting. The guides were fantastic, all the drivers were fun. And we added some special things to each tour as we could so much flexibility is offered. I love the Roman Guy and would certainly use them again. We also got to input to the tour to be sure we got to see all that we wanted to see and experience beyond the intinerary including a winery (on Vesuvius) and some hidden gems in Venice. Wear comfortable shows, bring sunscreen, cameras and an open mind and not just walk and see the history, but experience it with the Roman Guy. Very authentic, not just a run of the mill experience. What we liked least, having the tour and fun end.
