Venture out of Rome and into the ancient streets of Pompeii on this full-day outing to these fabled ruins. Walk in the footsteps of Pompeii's residents as you tour the incredible well-preserved city, which was buried under ash for centuries. For a different perspective, trek to the summit of Mount Vesuvius itself, stopping in Naples for a traditional pizza lunch.

Meet your guide in central Rome and head out of town, arriving at the gates of the ill-fated city of Pompeii to learn about the disaster that levelled the town and discover what life was like in an ancient Roman city. With a local guide leading the way, listen as daily life in this once-bustling port city is brought to life. Visit an array of excavated buildings to see where Roman families once dined, socialised, and did laundry, and uncover a few secret sites where visiting sailors both worked and played. Hear about the final days before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, and even see harrowing death casts of individuals frozen in time.

From there, venture to the base of the volcano itself. Trek along a half-mile (1-km) trail up to the crater of Mount Veusvius, where you have a dazzling view of the Bay of Naples. From this vantage point, it's easy to picture the fiery destruction and devastation that wiped Pompeii off the map. Your day is rounded out with a stop in seaside Naples, where you can relax over a delicious lunch of authentic Neapolitan pizza before heading back to Rome.

This was a well organised tour

Andy and Alessandra were excellent. Full of information and kept the tour interesting along the way to and from the Naples region. The climb up Vesuvius was a nice bit of exercise after the bus ride, but easily manageable, stunning views of the Bay of Naples, the city of Naples, the island of Capri and over to the Sorrento region. There was some steam/gas coming from the crater of the volcano. The guide at Pompeii was excellent, both educational and informative. This was so good, definitely would recommend it.
