Hotel pickup and drop-off
Piazza del Popolo , Piazza del Popolo, Roma RM, Italy

At the center of Piazza del Popolo, by the large fountain with the lions and the obelisk. The nearest metro stop is Flaminio (Line A). Our City Wonders coordinators will be wearing blue City Wonders polo shirts or jackets to be easily recognizable at the meeting point.

This activity will end right where it started.
Hop aboard your coach in central Rome, and travel south in air-conditioned comfort to Italy’s Campania region. As you travel, listen to tales about the colorful southern Italian area and Mt. Vesuvius.

After the volcano’s infamous AD 79 eruption, lava and volcanic ash destroyed the cities of Herculaneum and Pompeii. Evidence of those ancient streams of lava is still evident in the area.

First head from Rome to Pompeii. Once a thriving Roman city; today the town is best known for its UNESCO-listed archaeological digs, which are home to a wealth of relics. See incredibly preserved fossils and other ruins, plus plaster imprints of the town’s victims who were buried for years.

See the remains of the Forum and Teatro Grande, where some 5,000 people could once be seated. During your self-guided tour, learn about day-to-day life for the Pompeii locals as you wander streets where ancient shops, cafes and even brothels could be found.

Enjoy free time for sightseeing.

Then, journey to the infamous volcano. Step out of your coach for a steady-paced, walk to Mt Vesuvius’ summit, from where the most breathtaking views await. Make your way over trails covered in pumice rock and ash, before some free time to gaze down into the caldera and across the Bay of Naples.

Finally, head back to Rome by coach and finish with a drop-off at the start point.

Please note: Mt Vesuvius is inaccessible from mid-November to March. During this time, the hike is replaced with a visit to the iconic City of Naples. Take a panoramic bus tour and have some free time to walk around the city center.

Stop At:  
Pompeii Archaeological Park
The eruption in AD 79 spelled a fiery end for Pompeii, but the catastrophe also almost perfectly preserved the port city under layers of Volcanic ash. Thousands of years later, you can still explore the eerie streets and step inside homes, bathhouses and fast food places on your self-guided tour. You’ll travel from Rome to Pompeii in an air-conditioned private coach, accompanied and entertained all the way by your expert tour co-ordinator. Skip the line at Pompeii and head for a leisurely self-led tour around the city which paints a vivid picture of life in final days before the eruption. Throughout the ruins, you’ll come across harrowing death casts: plaster recreations of unfortunate citizens preserved by the superheated volcanic ash.
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Vesuvius National Park
It’s a short coach ride from Pompeii to the foot of the volcano that still looms above it. A half-mile hike from the parking lot takes you right to the sometimes still-steaming crater of Mt. Vesuvius – still perhaps the most dangerous volcano in the world. Stand at the epicentre of that ancient disaster and feel awe at the utter devastation it must have caused, to blast an entire city off the map for millennia. Then turn and enjoy the contrast: the crater offers the most stunning view of the sun-drenched Bay of Naples. In the winter months, when Vesuvius is closed for hiking, the tour travels from Pompeii to Naples, with panoramic views of the volcano and historical commentary from your tour co-ordinator along the way. You’ll have ample free time to explore Naples – a city as vibrant and alive as Pompeii is quiet and affecting – before the comfortable coach returns you to Rome.
Duration: 2 hours

Great day trip
, May 2022
A great day trip and wonderful experience! Nice to have headsets at Pompei so we could hear our guide- would not be possible without. Stopped for good panini.
What a disappointment
, May 2022
This would have been a better trip if only our guide was more knowledgeable and fit. She was trying to catch her breath the whole time and her accent was very thick we were unable to understand what she was saying. We ended up going on our own and lost interests. She basically repeated herself a lot. We were also hoping to see more plasters of people found in the site. They showed us only one! The rests were in another museum that we did not come to visit. What a disappointment.
Rushed beautiful experience
, May 2022
The tours were very good but there was no time for buying souvenirs. You felt rushed the entire time to make the 13 hour trip which is mostly bus rides. The guides were very nice.
, May 2022
Amalfi was awesome, wish the stay would have been longer though. The 2 hours ran so quickly. Pompeii was interesting.
Excellent tour - interesting historically & beautiful visually
, May 2022
Angelina was our tour guide on the bus . The ride was quite long - but Angelina kept us interested the entire time with historical & archaeology information . She was excellent . The guide at Pompeii was excellent also . It was a very enjoyable tour .
Rainy day tour
, May 2022
We went on a wet day which did hamper the experience somewhat. We got to the top of Vesuvius but couldn't see anything due to fog. Pompeii was great, our guide Willie was very funny. We would have liked more time to explore on our own. Good weather is essential to get the most out of this tour.
Worth the money
, May 2022
Great day, started right on time with a great group of people! Definitely would recommend on another note, the volcano 🌋 wasn’t easy to climb, but it was still a great experience!
Jocelyn was a JOY !!!!
, May 2022

Great day trip
, May 2022
Emilio and Jonny were amazing and made this trip very enjoyable. They were super punctual, very informative, helpful and funny. We even got a list of restaurant recommendations for Rome.
One day on the road
, May 2022
If you don’t have a lot of time, it’s a great way to fit a lot into a single day. The guide at Pompeii was nice even though we had a timeline to keep, and free time in Positano was just enough to look around and grab pictures, shop, and relax on the beach with some drinks. It’s a lot of driving but I appreciated the effort the guide put in to make this all happen in one day.
