Explore the extraordinary Pompeii with a private guide and discover the cause of its destruction: the Mount Vesuvius
This private tour is designed for visitors who want to learn about the ancient Romans' way of being and living, their habits and culture and to admire the extraordinary power of the nature climbing to the Crater of a still active volcano: the Mount Vesuvius.
The driver will come to pick you up at the prearranged meeting location. The driving from Naples to Pompeii takes apx 30 minutes. You will be flanking the slope of the Volcano Vesuvius on the left; on the right you have the entire Bay of Naples. Our walking tour in Pompeii will be focused on Porta Marina, the Basilica, the Forum, the Market Place and the Granaries, the Public Bath, a Pistrinum (bakery). After the visit you will proceed by car to explore Vesuvius. On the way up to the Crater, stop on the slope of the Volcano to enjoy a typical lunch, overlooking the Bay. On the way up, there are chances to observe some volcanic rocks and the local flora. Once reached the parking lot, at 3000 ft, you will leave the car, purchase the tickets and start your climbing. It takes 25 minutes. Once on the top you can explore half of the border of the crater enjoying the view of the bottom of the crater and of the Bay of Naples. After such an intense day, your driver will softly drive you back to your place in Naples.

What an amazing experience! Giuseppe did a fantastic job helping us to navigate the crowds in Pompeii. Without him I'm sure we would've never seen as much as we did. His knowledge of the history was amazing as well. He was great with our two boys and made the experience one that we will always remember. Thank you so much!
