This full-day tour takes you to visit the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum in a comfortable luxury vehicle (e.g. Mercedes). The driver/ vehicle will be at your disposal for the duration of the tour.
What to Expect
This private excursion allows you to enjoy both the Pompeii and Herculaneum ruins. In 79 AD, Herculaneum together with Pompeii was buried under a flood of mud during the Vesuvius eruption enabling the ruins to be better preserved. Also, in Herculaneum, the different typology of the town (residential) distinguishes itself from Pompeii. Unlike Pompeii, Herculaneum is today still partially buried under the modern town.
This is a private tour organized exclusively for groups of friends or family. The tour allows you to choose your transportation vehicle depending on the size of your group (car for 3 persons, a minivan for 7, or a minibus for 15). You will be picked up from your accommodation along the Amalfi Coast and then driven by a professional English-speaking driver to Pompeii. Once there, you will have the chance to enjoy a shared guided tour (depending on availability) to visit the ruins with an English-speaking professional guide (not included in the price). You will have approximately 2-hours of free time to spend at each site. At the end of the excursion, you will be driven back to your accommodation or to the starting point.
