Full description
Travel back in time to the devastating day in 79 AD the brooding volcano of Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried the Roman city of Pompeii beneath molten ash.  On arrival, your expert guide will take you on a 2-hour tour through the remains of this UNESCO world heritage site remarkably frozen in time for almost 2,000 years. One of the most popular destinations in the world, you will hear stories about the Forum, Thermal Baths, the Lupanare, the Greek Theatre, and plaster casts of the bodies of Pompeii people burnt by volcanic ashes and lapilli during the eruption in 79 A.D. Following a typical Naples lunch of pizza at one of Pompeii’s cafés, you will then be driven close to the summit of the mountain that destroyed it. From there, it's just a walk to the lip of the crater. The only active volcano in continental Europe, Vesuvius has erupted many times, but it was the destruction of Pompeii and its surrounding towns that made it most famous. Climb to the top, and walk around the crater, taking in the atmosphere of the smoking mountain. Enjoy the stunning views over the Bay of Naples. You will return to Naples at approximately 5:00 PM, where you will be dropped off at your hotel, the cruise ship, or the railway station.

Fantastic trip! Highly recommend. I learned a lot about the history of Pompeii and how important it was and still is too the culture of the world. Mt. Vesuvius was the most beautiful view I've ever seen at the top. Have some Tear of God wine while you're up there!

The pick-up was on time, perfect. The trip was very well organized. Of course in Pompei for 2h you see only the highlights but if you don't want (or can't) spend there the whole day, that's a trip for you. On Vesuvio you have enough time to even drink a glass of wine on the top. The lunch could be better or at least have more choice.

Great organization regarding the transportation from and to Poempei as well as Mt vesuvius. However, the time you were given to spent in Mt Vesuvius was barely enough, you would have to hurry so you can reach the crater, spend about 10 15 minutes there (not enough, taking into account the amazing view of the crater an the Golf of Naples, that takes some time so you can appreciate and admire the scenery), then you had to rush backdown in order to get on the van and head back. Overall, it was a good experience, offering great convenience regarding the transportation, however it would be much better if we were given some more free time in Mt Vesuvius and a longer lasting tour around Pompei.
