This private tour of Pompeii from the ship will begin in the morning with a driver pick-up at the dock of the port in Naples with a luxury sedan/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 2 hours, visiting the most interesting sites and telling the history of this Roman city that was covered 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 your private car will take you back to the port in time for boarding your cruise ship. Since this will be a private tour, you can choose the starting time and drop-off based on schedule of your cruise. This excursion will last about 4 hrs in total (including driving time to Pompeii of about one hour each way).
If you want to discover more about the archaeological site of Pompeii we suggest having an additional hour with your private guide so the visit will be 3 hours total (total of about 5 hours including driving time back to the port). You can choose to have a three hour tour by selecting the corresponding option in the reservation box (located in the upper right side of this page).
If you wish is also possible to add a city tour of Naples. Your private driver, together with your private guide, will take you to visit the highlights of this beautiful city. To add this option, in the reservation box that you find in the upper right of this page, open the options menu and select the Naples City Tour extension. The total duration of the Pompeii trip plus the tour of Naples will be 7 hours, including a break for lunch.
