The Ruins of Pompeii

Pompeii is a rare and beautiful archaeological site just south of Naples. It was covered or ‘flash frozen’ by 13 - 20 feet (4-6 meters) of ash and pumice by the catastrophic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Our expert English-speaking tour guide will tell you many interesting facts about Pompeii, as well as make its story come alive with lesser-known knowledge. After weaving you through this ancient Roman city, they will then take you up to the crater of the magnificent Mount Vesuvius.

Mount Vesuvius

Mount Vesuvius is the only active volcano in mainland Europe, and the most studied in the world. It is also one of the most dangerous volcanos as it has a population of people living close by in the surrounding areas!

This angry volcano supposedly ejected ash more than 20 miles into the air, during the fateful eruption of 79AD. Now that is impressive! Visiting Mount Vesuvius is an experience of a lifetime. Come check it out if you dare!

Our driver will pick you up from your hotel in Rome, and at the end of this day trip, bring you back. There will be plenty of time for a lunch break in between the visiting the Pompeii site & Mt. Vesuvius.

This is by far one of the most exciting things to do outside of Rome, a day full of adventure!

Pompeii and Vesuvius

You can't go to Italy and not visit Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius!!!!!!! This tour was great because of the included transportation, the expert guide, and the hike up the volcano. This experience had been on my bucket list for years and I am elated to finally check it off. The hike wasn't too bad either!

Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius

This made such a great day trip! Definitely a cool experience to see Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. Definitely bring comfy shoes and a hat for sunny days but AMAZING time overall.
