Description

Go back in time with this private 4-hour trip to Pompeii from Naples. Explore the archaeological site on your own or with a guide (if you select this tour option). Enjoy transfer from your Naples hotel or the cruise port. You'll have about two hours to visit the ruins of Pompeii itself, not including transportation time.

Begin the day with a pickup from your accommodation or the cruise port at approximately 8:30am.

Arrive at the entrance of the excavation at Pompeii. There, you'll either purchase your entry ticket and explore the ruins on your own or, if you have chosen this option, you'll meet your licensed tour guide for a tour of the site. In either case, you have about two hours to explore Pompeii.

Founded in 600 B.C., a once-thriving commercial port of 20,000, Pompeii grew from Greek and Etruscan roots to become an important Roman city. Then on August 24, A.D. 79, everything changed. Vesuvius erupted and began to bury the city under 30 feet of hot volcanic ash. For the archaeologists who excavated it centuries later, the ruins taught them volumes about daily Roman life. Today Pompeii as well Herculaneum offer the best look anywhere at what life in Rome must have been like around 2,000 years ago. This city of well-preserved ruins is yours to explore. Not rich, not poor, it was middle class—a perfect example of typical Roman life.
