Rome to Pompeii Tour

In Rome, meet your driver and tour leader in a designated spot to begin the drive down the Autostrada del Sole (Highway of the Sun) to the buried city of Pompeii. This is where you'll meet your personal archaeologist, who will walk you through the remarkably well-preserved remains of this ancient metropolis.

Don't want a day trip from Rome, but still want to experience Pompeii? Check out our Skip the Line Pompeii Ruins Tour with Villa of Mysteries.

Guided Tour of Pompeii 

Just south of Naples, this UNESCO world heritage site 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 A.D. Frozen in time by volcanic ash, this ancient city stands apart from any other place in Italy. 

Led by your professional guide, experience this ancient city and see how these well-preserved structures and all the evidence of daily life inside reveals secrets about Roman civilization. The city sat undisturbed for almost 2,000 years. Then, in 1748, a group of explorers discovered that beneath the volcanic ash, the city was still mostly intact.  As a result, we now have an unparalleled snapshot of life in the prosperous ancient city. 

Villa of Mysteries

After exploring the main ruins of Pompeii, you'll follow your guide to more of a hidden gem of the lost city of Pompeii. Sure, the Villa of Mysteries sounds intriguing, but what actually is it? Your guide will take you through a series of rooms depicting a young girl and her mysterious initiation into an ancient cult. You'll be shocked to see how well this villa has been preserved since the 79 A.D. eruption.

Experience Sorrento

After you've finished exploring Pompeii, our driver will collect the group and start traveling down the gorgeous winding roads of the Italian coast, along the Gulf of Naples, and onto Sorrento. From here, take some time to leisurely explore the center of this charming coastal gem, enjoy a typical local lunch* and indulge in a new flavor of gelato or some famous limoncello. Then, after a long day of sightseeing, culture and history, head back to the mini-coach, sit back and relax on the scenic drive back to the Eternal City.

Why Sorrento instead of Positano? Both are super famous and beautiful hillside villages on what is arguably the world's most scenic coastline. Sorrento happens to be just about 40 minutes closer to Rome and Pompeii.  This leaves us more time to explore the city and 1hr and 20 minutes less in our vehicle!

Nice tour

The guide at Pompeii was very good and the organization of the tour was good. It was great to have time in Sorrento for a wonderful lunch and still be able to do some sightseeing.
