  • Overview & Itinerary
    Overview This wonderful day trip from Rome takes you to the city of Naples and Pompeii - the city destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

    The first stop is Naples where you will enjoy fabulous views of the Gulf of Naples and Mount Vesuvius from the hill of Posillipo. Wander around Piazza del Plebiscito, the largest square in Naples, home to the Royal Palace, and Castel dell’Ovo, the oldest castle in Naples.

    Continue to Pompeii where you will walk along the ancient streets for a glimpse into the lives of the Romans. Through the remains and ruins of this ancient city, you can picture the everyday life in the Imperial Age and imagine the panic felt by the people before the city was so disastrously buried.

    A guide available in German, Spanish, English and French will accompany at all times.

    Itinerary

    You will depart from Vittorio Emanuele Orlando 95 in Rome and take the Autostrada del Sole in south and drive through the beautiful Italian countryside. A guide will accompany you at all times.

    Pass by the beautiful rolling hills of Lazio and Campania and approximately halfway along the highway, you will be able to see the Abbey of Montecassino. The abbey is perched on a mountain and symbolises the endurance and resilience of Christian faith. It has been destroyed and rebuilt on four separate occasions, including the most recent, World War II.

    Arrive at Naples and proceed towards the hill of Posillipo, from where you can enjoy spectacular views of the Gulf of Naples and the volcano, Vesuvius. At Naples, you will visit the Piazza del Plebiscito, the largest square in Naples and is bounded on the east by the Royal Palace and on the west by the Church of San Francesco di Paola.

    You will also see the Royal Palace, one of the four residences used by the Bourbon Kings; and the impressive Castel dell’Ovo (meaning Egg’s Castle), the city’s oldest castle, rising upon the islet of Megaride. Apparently, the name of the castle is linked to a medieval legend.

    Next, stop for an authentic Italian lunch at a local restaurant before heading to Pompeii. Cross the fertile valley of Mount Vesuvius passing the towns of Ercolano, Torre del Greco and Torre Annunziata before arriving at Pompeii.

    Pompeii is one of the most important archaeological sites in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was buried under lava and ash from Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD and lay forgotten for hundreds of years. Excavations began in the 18th century and are still being carried out. An expert guide will bring Pompeii back to life for you and show you many of the best-preserved relics.

    After exploring Pompeii, you will make your journey back to Rome.

    • Early start in the morning as had hotel pick up, this tour was for my husbands birthday present and it did not disappoint if there was one bad point that I can think of it would be to have a little walk around Naples as only got to see it on bus ride and had one stop to take pictures, I would of liked a little more time in Pompeii but the guides where great and Rodger lovely and very helpful, the food included was very nice as well the family enjoyed it, and they dropped us off at hotel at the end great
