What people are saying about Pompei

Everything went smoothly. It was a big day but well worth it. The coach guide, Franchesco, was brilliant, giving clear instructions on the day's itinerary, and facts on the journey about Italy, Rome and Napoles. The walk up to Vesuvius was about 1 mile to the top from the coach. amazing views. Our Pompeii guide was excellent. However, we did want to see the artefacts at the end. We asked if it was possible to have 10 mins to have a quick look at the cast victims and treasures. I know they are on a time schedule, and it was good to have chance to do this. The driver was great, we stopped for coffee, snacks and the toilet halfway which was needed.

A long but very doable day. The coach journey is broken up there and back with a stop where they sell delicious donuts! Pompeii is very interesting - our 11 year old said it was her favourite trip of our stay in Rome. Mount Vesuvius gave spectacular views. The climb is tiring though - definitely not to be taken lightly if you struggle with fitness. The day was well organised and we had fantastic guides - both with us on the coach and for Pompeii.

Angela was a great tour guide along with the local guide at Pompeii. Also our bus driver was amazing on the windy Italy streets.
