What to Expect

Hop aboard on coach at your location in Rome, and travel south in air-conditioned comfort to Italy’s Campania region. Southern Italy area and Mt Vesuvius.

After the volcano’s infamous AD 79 eruption, lava and volcanic ash destroyed the cities of Herculaneum and Pompeii. Evidence of those ancient streams of lava is still evident in the area, and your guide will show them as you travel.

Step out of your coach for a steady-paced, 20-minute walk to Mt Vesuvius’ summit, from where the most breathtaking views await. Make your way over trails covered in pumice rock and ash, before some free time to gaze down into the caldera and across the Bay of Naples.

Walk back down with your guide, and then head into Naples for a lunch of traditional pizza. From Naples, journey further south to complete your day trip from Rome to Pompeii. Once a thriving Roman city; today the town is best known for its UNESCO-listed archaeological digs, which are home to a wealth of relics. See incredibly preserved fossils and other ruins, plus plaster imprints of the town’s victims who were buried for years.

See the remains of the Forum and Teatro Grande, were some 5,000 people could once be seated. From your Pompeii tour guide, hear about day-to-day life for the Pompeii locals as you wander streets where ancient shops, cafes and even brothels could be found.

Finally, head back to Rome by coach and finish with a drop-off at the start point.
