Day trip from Rome to Pompeii, Herculaneum and Naples

With your private local guide you will explore the amazingly well-preserved archaeological excavations of Pompeii, the prosperous Roman city whose life was interrupted in the year 79AD by the lava and ashes coming from the Vesuvio vulcanic eruption. 

The city remained buried for many centuries and was rediscovered only in the 18th century. We will then visit the town of Herculaneum and will take a walk in the heart of Naples to see the highlights and taste flavorful cakes and coffee!




A DAY TRIP TO THE FAMOUS RUINS OF POMPEII AND HERCULANEUM, AND A WALK IN THE COLORFUL CITY CENTER OF NAPLES

For this tour is recommended to travel from Rome to Naples by train (1h 10min on FrecciaRossa hi-speed train); meet our driver at Naples train station and travel to Pompeii, Herculaneum and Naples. Return to Rome by train (1h 10min)

At the arrival in Pompeii you will meet your private guide, officially licensed and with degree in archeology or art history. Your guide will take you through the ruins of Pompeii for about 2 hrs. Please consider that because of the magnitude and complexity of the this archeological site, a knowledgeable guide is really a must!

After the tour you will have time for a lunch break and then your private car will take you to Herculaneum for a tour
of this ancient Roman town which was destroyed – along with Pompeii, Stabiae and Oplontis – by the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79.
Herculaneum was a smaller town with a wealthier population than Pompeii and is famous for its beautiful remains, in very good conditions.

After Herculaneum we will travel to Naples for a walk in the heart of the city, to see its highlights and taste flavorful cakes and coffee!



As an alternative option, you can decide to combine a tour of Pompeii with a scenic drive along the Amalfi coast with stops at Ravello (foto), Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento.
