You'll want to fill it up, when you learn about our world famous Colosseum Underground Tour!
We will be walking a lot around archaeological sites and ruins, and when hiking Mt. Vesuvius, we will be climbing all the way up to the crater.
Your driver will pick you up in a climate controlled vehicle right form your Rome hotel’s front door. Your journey will then begin as you drive south to reach the Pompeii site!
After a picturesque drive down 'The Highway of the Sun', you will arrive at the incredible ancient city of Pompeii.
Immerse yourself in the emotions of the ancient people as you see them contemplate their last moments on Earth.
Walk through the city’s streets, see the theaters, stadiums, squares and markets that tell the story of how time stood still on one fateful day in 79AD.
Your guide will explain how the cataclysmic disaster and the volcanic ashes even kept some of the paintings preserved and intact, helping your imagination rebuild this city in your mind.
After your tour of the ancient ruins of Pompeii, you’ll make your way over to the majestic active volcano, Mount Vesuvius.
Having toured Pompeii, it’s now time to visit the monstrous volcano that is responsible for its destruction. After a short break, you will be lead on a hike up Mount Vesuvius to the very top.
At the crater, all your curiosities about Volcanoes and the eruption of Vesuvius, will be answered by our volcanologist. Enjoy the fantastic photo opportunity and take in the panoramic views!
After your full day of adventure, you'll be taken right back to your hotel in Rome with a whole lot of wonderful memories!
How many times in your life will you be able to say that you walked through an almost perfectly preserved ancient city and then climbed up the volcano that destroyed it in the first place? We are guessing not too many, that’s why we offer this awesome experience of a lifetime with our Day Trip From Rome to Pompeii & Mount Vesuvius!
If you are planning to go south, then this archaeological wonder should be at the top of your priority list.
Pompeii is a rare and beautiful archaeological site just south of Naples. It was covered or ‘flash frozen’ by 13 - 20 feet (4-6 meters) of ash and pumice by the catastrophic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79AD, often times referred to as Julius Caesar’s revenge!
Our expert English-speaking tour guide will tell you many interesting facts about Pompeii, as well as make its story come alive with lesser-known knowledge. After weaving you through this ancient Roman city, they will then take you up to the crater of the magnificent Mount Vesuvius.
Mount Vesuvius is the only active volcano in mainland Europe, and the most studied in the world. It is also one of the most dangerous volcanos as it has a population of people living close by in the surrounding areas!
This angry volcano supposedly ejected ash more than 20 miles into the air, during the fateful eruption of 79AD. Now that is impressive! Visiting Mount Vesuvius is an experience of a lifetime. Come check it out if you dare!
Our driver will pick you up from your hotel in Rome, and at the end of this day trip, bring you back. There will be plenty of time for a lunch break in between the visiting the Pompeii site & Mt. Vesuvius.
This is by far one of the most exciting things to do outside of Rome, a day full of adventure!

Vesuvius and grew our number of experiences with The Roman Guy up to 5 (Pompeii/Mt. Vesuvius/Rome/Colosseum/Venice and the Vatican City). Each held up to the same standard. The guides are local, and have a knowledge and passion for the areas they showed us. The guide's passion for the area, the knowledge and interest were fantastic. It all started with exceptional booking and then the tours all lived up to our expectations and beyond. Flexible, interesting, fun, exciting. The guides were fantastic, all the drivers were fun. And we added some special things to each tour as we could so much flexibility is offered. I love the Roman Guy and would certainly use them again. We also got to input to the tour to be sure we got to see all that we wanted to see and experience beyond the intinerary including a winery (on Vesuvius) and some hidden gems in Venice. ..more

I've always wanted to see Pompeii and this made it easy. Hotel pick up, clean comfortable car, driver didn't chat to much and drove fine. Guides in Pompeii are great too.. really funny. You can tell Naples has the funniest people in Italy. My kids LOVED Vesuvius. Climbing up a volcano was the highlight of their trip. ..more
