Full description

Immerse yourself in 2,000 years of history and see how the Romans lived on this combination tour by minivan or car of the Pompeii ruins and Mount Vesuvius. Wander the archaeological site of the destroyed city before seeing the Bay of Naples from volcanic heights.

Skip the main ticket line at the famous site of Pompeii and explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site with more time. Spend two hours on a guided tour wandering amongst the ruins and relics of the Roman Forum, the Stabian Baths, and the Greek Theatre and admire the frescoes and mosaics up close.

After a morning visiting Pompeii, take a 30 minutes break before beginning the second part of the trip. Add a typical Neapolitan pizza lunch or wine tasting session to your tour for a taste of southern Italian hospitality.

Embark on a scenic drive to reach a point close to the top of Mount Vesuvius. This winding ride up to 1000 meters is a conveyor belt of pine forests and bright yellow flowers. Your skip-the-line ticket gets straight into the site, with more time to explore.

Then, it's a short 30-minute trek up on wide open paths to the crater rim and the caldera. Enjoy a walk with a volcanologist guide who will tell you about the geological history of the volcano and its eruptions before soaking up the unbeatable views of the Bay of Naples.

After the day of historical adventures, relax on the bus trip back to Naples and enjoy views of the mighty Vesuvius from a distance, knowing that you just stood upon it.

Nice trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius. They separated us to little groups (with language). Our guide was funny and everything was good. At the Vesuvius you have time on your one and get to discover everything what you want. Te wine tasting was in local restaurant with amazing view. They picked us on and off at the same location we agreed on. Everything was on time aswell. Reccomend

Great trip, well organised and really interesting. We went as a family (with 2 teenagers) - it was obviously extremely hot, so be advised to take lots of water and sun cream if going at this time of year! Also included a lovely pizza lunch at a really nice restaurant halfway up Mt. Vesuvius. And we were hosted all day by the lovely Serena, she was brilliant :)

We had done this excursion with my 11-year-old son, first a two-hour visit to Pompeï with a guide who spoke French who explained it well to us, it was great, then we went to eat a pizza in a restaurant on the road between Pompeii and Vesuvius! then direction Vesuvius, we had two hours to climb but that was more than enough, we loved this day and the guides were super nice! (The only downside is the bottled water they offer which was not fresh at all)
