Overview
While vacationing in Rome, spend time away from the big city without doing a ton of planning on a guided tour of Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. Hike to Mt. Vesuvius' crater and explore Pompeii with a guide, discovering lesser-known historical info as you go, and don’t worry about lunch or entrance fees because pizza and admission are both included.
What to Expect
Your tour of Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius starts with pickup in central Rome. 

Board an air-conditioned vehicle, and make the ride over to Mt. Vesuvius. At Mt. Vesuvius, your guide leads you on a hike to the top of the old volcano. At the top, catch sight of the Bay of Naples, and sights inside the crater. Please note from late November to late March, you’ll explore the National Archaeological Museum of Pompeii instead of the short hike. 

Afterward, take a break and enjoy a pizza lunch before making your way over to Pompeii—a UNESCO World Heritage Site and former Roman city.

Once you arrive in Pompeii, follow your guide on a tour, and learn the history of the area. See the Forum and Teatro Grande as you go.

Your tour ends with a ride back to Rome.

Pompeii & Mr Vesuvius (Naples)

Our guide, Assam, was great. Knowledgeable & informative. So was the guide at Pompeii. Unfortunately our group had to ‘share’ the bus trip with another group and their guide, Robert. Robert repeated everything that Assam said. He was rude and overbearing, not to mention patronising....More

Good option for some :)

First of all, Robert the tour guide was very kind and helpful! We did end up leaving the tour in Pompeii however because for us the tour just did not offer enough time there. It is such an amazing destination and running through the highlights...More

Great to see Pompei ruins

History books don't do this city justice. A must see place! Chiara and Inga were great tour guides from Rome and local tour guides around Pompei were excellent. Due to the time of year, we didn't get to experience Mt Vesuvius. We went to Naples...More

There is not a toilet on the bus. We did make stops that seemed to work for everyone. I don’t remember for sure, but I don’t think we traveled more than an hour with stopping.

I concur with the other responses, particularly with the one from Melissa S. However, I found the food pretty basic, nothing fancy. Our family brought along our own snacks and water - we always do. Steven R San Diego
