Mt. Vesuvius, Herculaneum & Pompeii
Tour Option designed for all the guests who wish to fully enjoy the amazing Mediterranean historical treasures.
Embark on one of the most incredible day tours in Italy: Mt. Vesuvius, Pompeii and Herculaneum tour.
An incredible day tour experience exploring the ancient Roman resorts of Pompeii & Herculaneum also including the climb up to the top of the volcano Mt. Vesuvius which offers an amazing view overlooking the Bay of Naples.
Tour option with pick up and drop off at your designated location.
Herculaneum was a seaside resort, a smaller town with a wealthier population at the time of its destruction. Covered by a torrent of mud, rather than ash, the ruins are in some ways even better-preserved than those of Pompeii.
The active volcano Mt. Vesuvius, the giant volcano dominating the Bay of Naples. Drive up 3000 feet through the old crater and then make the final 25 minute hike up to the top, zigzagging along a path of volcanic gravel. Once at the summit an amazing view views of the Peninsula of Sorrento and the islands Capri, Ischia, and Procida.
Then we'll proceed on a fascinating two-hour visit through the amazing Pompeii.
Once a thriving empire, the city of Pompeii had about 20, 000 inhabitants in 79 AD, when it was completely covered in 30 feet of volcanic ash by the deadly eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

My husband and I had such a fantastic time on this trip with Roberto. Roberto was extremely accommodating and picked us up right at our Airbnb in the morning to head out for our day visiting these beautiful sights. Roberto's English is perfect so there was absolutely no language barrier. He answered all of our questions (we had a lot!) and was so excited to share his country with us. Immediately personable, we both connected with Roberto immediately and could not have asked for a better guide! GREAT!
