Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius Day Trip from Naples with Lunch and Wine Tastings
From US$166.16

Set out from Naples on this full-day tour and head straight to Pompeii and the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius. Don’t worry about organizing your own transportation: with round-trip transit by air-conditioned bus from the heart of Naples, it couldn’t be simpler to get around. Skip-the-line access gives you even more time to explore the UNESCO-listed Pompeii, while a winery visit, lunch, and hike to Vesuvius’ crater round out the itinerary.

What to Expect

Meet your guide at Naples Central Train Station in the morning, climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned bus, and leave the bustle of the city behind. As you go, admire views overlooking the Bay of Naples, and listen to your guide’s stories (audio headsets are included so you don’t miss a word).

Your first destination is Pompeii, a once-busy Roman city that was buried in ash when Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD. Today, this UNESCO World Heritage Site and archaeological landmark includes amazingly well preserved ruins. Skip-the-line access means you’ll head straight in, and will have extra time to see the sights and learn more about Pompeii’s history.

Next, climb back on board the bus and continue to Mt. Vesuvius itself, where you’ll visit a local winery. Tour its vineyards and cellars, and learn why volcanic soil is good for grapes. Then, you’ll settle in for six wine samples and a three-course lunch of Neapolitan specialties.

After another short drive, it’s only a 20-minute hike to reach Vesuvius’ crater, which you’ll be able to peer into. Capture photos of the panoramic views overlooking Naples and the surrounding countryside, too.

Return to the bus and head back to your departure point, where the tour ends.

Great way to experience two historic sites in a day.

This tour was great value though we were a bit unfortunate with the weather. Rain was expected in the afternoon so for some reason, our tour was "flipped" and we visited Pompeii first. This was fine except that by the time we came to climb...More

The easy way to experience these two fantastic sites

I booked this tour when I was in Naples, I had planned on going to Pompeii myself since I had heard it was easy enough, and I assumed I didn’t have time for Vesuvius. However, because I was travelling alone, my anxiety was a little...More

Best part of our trip to Naples, A* recommendation

Travelling as a couple, we were first drawn to Naples as a destination purely for the Volcano and the Pompeii ruins. Hoping to find some tour operators as we were walking around the city, we felt it was hard to come across any that seemed...More

They were quite prompt in leaving, although the departure point is right outside the train station. You could ask the tour operator directly if they would wait for you.
