Experience the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pompeii on this convenient half-day tour from Naples. Skip the hassle of train or rental-car travel with included transportation from Naples. Once you arrive, breeze through the crowds with priority entry into the popular archaeological park. Follow your guide and listen to in-depth commentary on the highlights of the site, including the frescoed walls of Vetti’s house, the brothel, baths, and piazza.

What to Expect

Start with convenient pickup at your Naples hotel. This half-day tour’s early departure means you’ll be one of the first to enter Pompeii, and you’ll return to Naples with time for exploration.

Meet your guide and minibus, from which you’ll take in the scenery while your guide handles the driving.

After a short drive, you’ll disembark for priority entry into the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Learn about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which spewed ash and trapped people and buildings under tons of volcanic debris. Your guide will take you through the preserved piazza, baths, houses, and streets to learn about life in this prosperous Roman-era city.

The tour’s exact route depends on the crowd and weather, but expect to see highlights such as the luxury residence Casa Vetti, Lupanare, Pompeii’s brothel, thermal baths, Forum, and Via degli Augustali.

Your tour ends with stress-free drop-off at your Naples hotel.

Pompeii half day tour made great by Elisa!

We have done the Pompeii half day tour before but it was the first time for our friend who traveled with us. 2 years ago when we did the tour our guide was Elisa and we were really lucky to have got her this time...More

I absolutely enjoyed this tour (even through the rain)!!! If you enjoy history this is a must see. Unbelievable to walk the roads and tour the buildings from centuries ago. Call me naive or twisted but to walk through a bordello was pretty cool also.

Great express-tour

Easy pickup, eventhough it was a large group and the headphones had an awful sound, the guide informed us very well about the main sights in Pompeii.

There were a lot of children in carriers. It should be ok but it was very crowded.

3 hours altogether. Allow for some delays like lost tourists to be safe!
