A visit to the ancient city of Pompeii and the amazing Mount Vesuvius in one day - Private transportation and tickets included!
**THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED ON YOUR NEEDS AND REQUESTS**
If you're in Rome, don't miss the chance to visit Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius as well!
My driver will pick you up at your accommodation in Rome and he'll take you to Pompeii for an exciting guided tour with me.
Walking in the city you will learn about the history of Mount Vesuvius' eruption and how the Romans used to live back then, entering all the most important public buildings and private houses.
If desired, we can schedule lunch in a typical restaurant, pizzeria or winery as well!
I will be with you only in Pompeii; the rest of the day my trusted driver will assist you. In the afternoon you'll visit Mount Vesuvius: a 20-minute walk on your own is needed to reach the highest part of the crater. Up there you will have a stunning panorama overseeing the Bay of Naples, Capri, Ischia, the edge of the Sorrento Coast and more!
Closed-in shoes are essential.
After this tour, the driver will drop you off back in Rome.
I suggest leaving Rome at 7/maximum 7. 30 AM.
This tour consists of a 2-hour amazing walk in the ancient city of Pompeii, with the best highlights of the western part of the ruins.
It is a very intense experience; you'll have the feeling of wandering in a still alive town. I will explain to you the history of the town and how the Romans lived, showing you all the most important public buildings and private houses.
You will then have lunch in a typical restaurant, pizzeria or winery on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius!
At the top of the volcano there is a crater rim that affords a view into the crater, that sometimes still fumes slightly. Besides that you will have a stunning panorama overseeing the Bay of Naples, Capri, Ischia, the edge of the Sorrento Coast and more. Everyone has to walk on their own the last 750 metres steeply uphill. Closed-in shoes are essential.
After that, you will walk back down to meet your driver, who will take you back to Rome.

Paolo was a fabulous guide. He was as great with the children as he was with the adults. Extremely informative and such perfect English. I have been to Pompeii before, but going with Paolo made it infinitely better. I wish we had the chance to use him again, but we definitely will next trip. Our driver, Massimo, was also terrific!
