We really enjoyed the Pompeii and Vesuvius tour! The two hour Pompeii tour was interesting and a great intro to the site. We opted for the pizza lunch and the pizza was gorgeous. We then had an hour and a half or so in Vesuvius which was the ideal length of time to hike to the top and explore the crater. Our driver Rino and guide Marie Angela were also both great!

The visit to the volcano was definitely worth the trip! The pizza lunch choice (2 choices, with mozzarella or without) was okay but the pizzas were served in 3 different times (some family members have finished eating by the time the last pizza was delivered to the rest of the family, not handy) while the restaurant was not busy. The traffic was awful and pick-ups took very long but the walk erased all the negative elements. We thought about booking another trip to the coast but after sitting so long in the bus for this tour we decided not to book a longer bus trip than this one.

Both Pompei as well as Vesuvius are amazing and definitely are worth to visit them. Our tour guide, Alessandra was very nice and helpful. The tour began in Pompei where they split us in different groups based on knowledge and it took around 20 minutes to get inside. The guide inside was nice but it was hard sometimes to hear him through the headset as he was moving and touching his microphone continuously. Anyways, it was interesting but 2 hours is just a bit enough to Pompei. The lunch was delicious but it was a bit hard to climb Vesuvius if you are full of pizza and cake. I would suggest to change the program, start with the Vesuvius and after lunch, take a walk in Pompei. There is no guide in Vesuvius but it would have been great to hear more about the volcano.
