This tour from Naples to Pompeii will begin with a private driver pick-up from your hotel in Naples (or other central location like the train station) with a luxury sedan or minivan.
If you are on a cruise ship arriving at the port of Naples, it is possible to take this private tour as a shore excursion.
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 2-2.5 hrs, 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 your hotel in Naples. This excursion will last about 4 hours in total (including driving time to Pompeii of about one hour each way).
If you wish is 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 reservations box that you find in the upper right of this page, open the options menu and select the Naples City Tour extension.
