Description:

This daytrip from Rome to Pompeii will begin in the morning with a private driver pick-up from your hotel in Rome with a luxury sedan or minivan.

At the arrival in Pompeii you will meet your private guide, officially licensed and with degree in archaeology or art history. Because of the complexity of the this vast archaeological site, a knowledgeable guide is really a must. Your guide will take you through the ruins of Pompeii for about 3 hours, visiting the most interesting sites and telling the history of this Roman city that was buried in the ashes by the vulcanic eruption of mount Vesuvius in 79 AD and that remained buried until the excavations started in the 18th century.

You will walk on the paved roads where two thousand years ago the inhabitants of this city used to walk, you will see the shops where they made their trade, go inside the small homes of the average people and the luxurious villas of the wealthy and you will admire frescoes that arrived to us still rich in colors.

After the tour you will have time for a lunch break in a typical restaurant and then your private car will take you back to your hotel in Rome. This excursion will last about 10 hrs in total (including driving time to Pompeii of about 3 hrs each way).

If you wish is possible to enjoy an extended version of this tour to include a visit on the Amalfi coast. You can reach either Sorrento or Positano where you will have about one hour to explore the town on your own and have lunch before returning back to Rome. Please note that if you choose to include the Amalfi coast you will add about two hours to the total duration of your tour (and have two hours for visiting Pompeii). To add this option, look in the reservations box that you find in the upper right of this page, open the options menu and select the Amalfi coast extension.

Hello, We had an excellent experience. As I am sure you understand, travelling with an 86-year old can be a challenge, and he really wanted to see Pompeii. The booking was easy, the car came virtually to the door, we had a comfortable ride with a knowledgeable and respectful driver. We used my father’s handicapped pass to drive right up to the gates! The guided tours in Pompeii/Herculaneum were terrific. We could go at our own pace, stop and rest, but still see many things. Even for myself (and I have been to Pompeii 4 times before) learned several new things. It was a once in a lifetime trip for my father that you helped make come true, so I thank you and everyone involved most sincerely. Grazie, Kerry

We enjoyed our day trip to Pompeii very much. The driver was on time, courteous and dropped us right at the entrance. Our guide was very nice and extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the site which made for an perfect tour. It was a very efficient way to see Pompeii from Rome with no hassle.
