From Naples: Private Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius and Winery Tour

3. From Naples: Private Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius and Winery Tour

This tour begins with collection from a pre-arranged meeting point, and your driver will then take you to three key sites of the Naples region. Firstly, Pompeii is of unparalleled importance and a trip to the area would be incomplete without visiting the town, which was buried under a vast layer of burning stone and ash when Vesuvius erupted in AD79. Thanks to this layer of ash, everything was incredibly well-preserved so that visitors today can walk around an intact Roman town, enter houses, temples, amphitheatres and even a brothel, and truly feel what it was like to live in Roman times. The second stop is a vineyard located near the base of Mount Vesuvius. Here, you will be able to taste some delicious local wines and visit the vineyard. Boscotrecase, where it is located, is a town of intense agricultural activity, especially directed to the production of fine wines. Finally, visit Vesuvius itself, still an active volcano. It is a sight of rare beauty, and it was the first volcano in the world to be studied systematically (by the will of the ruling House of Bourbon). Today, Vesuvius is still monitored and controlled. See this wonder of nature to make your trip to the Naples region complete.

The tour of Pompeii is a bit short for the size of the place, but it was kind of nice that way. You could try to see it all but it all starts looking the same at some point. The guide was great and very knowledgeable. Definitely would recommend. The luck was fantastic and the views from the volcano are exceptional.

Visit Pompeii and volcano Vesuvius great but be careful do it by bus or taxi, not with your car no place to park

Everything was good, except my travel companion was unable to make it so I’d like a refund for his ticket.

We wanted to do Pompeii and Vesuvius in 1 day so it was at quite a pace. Wear suitable shoes!

Nice and very friendly guides/drivers. Thanks to Conny, Antonio and Francesco!
