Day tour from Rome to Naples and Pompeii

Naples and Pompeii sit close to the imposing volcano of Mount Vesusius, which in 79 AD erupted with violent strength. Pompeii was destroyed and hidden by a veil of ash, which served to preserve ancient life. Centuries later, the ruins were discovered and it is now possible to visit and experience how people lived thousands of years ago.

On this tour to Naples and Pompeii, your licenced and fully qualified guide will bring the history of this region to life and tell you all about the culture of this diverse part of Italy. It is a fascinating day trip for those interested in history and archeology, as well as those simply looking to discover more about Italian life and culture.
