Full description
Start your full-day trip from the historical city center of Naples from where you will venture to the Herculaneum ruins. After approximately 40 minutes of driving, the bus will drop you off nearby the main entrance of the ruins. You can enjoy skip-the-line entrance with your voucher, before being able to discover Herculaneum on your own. Herculaneum was the first archaeological site discovered in the 18th century, and became one of the most famous sites in the world. Nowadays, Herculaneum boasts several landmarks such as the house with the mosaic atrium, the house of the deer, the thermal spas of the forum, the house of the mosaic of Neptune and Amphitrite, which definitely deserves to be visited. Afterwards you will continue on to Mount Vesuvius, enjoying a drive through a national park that features amazing views of the Bay of Naples. The bus will climb to a height of 1,000 meters, from where you will take a walking path up to the crater where you can admire area views and learn more about local geology from the volcanological guides. Following your Mt. Vesuvius visit, you’ll head back to Naples.

Wanted to do things in our own time without a guide. Just needed someone to take us to the car park in Vesuvius so we could walk the rest of it. Had plenty of time in both places and driver was professional. Tickets paid for in price so only refreshments to get. Not home too late.

This is not a guided tour, but a transport service with entry tickets included. Convenient dropoff to Mt Vesuvius entrance for a 20min walk up to the top where you can join a guide there for some information. Later you will be driven to Herculaneum where you can either pay for an audio guide or walk on your own. Saves time trying to get from place to place.

Could have done with less time at mount vesuvius and more time at herculaneum. There was no wine tasting stop as advertised either. Mister White, who is the actual tour company, asked get your guide to remove that part of the tour from their adverts a couple of months ago.
