The Ruins of Pompeii

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 79 AD.

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

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!

Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius day trip

We took this tour on June 19, 2019. What a great trip! We had no idea how much there was to see! Our tour guide at Pompeii was wonderful and very knowledgeable! We were engaged from beginning to end - so much history! We really appreciated his expertise. After Pompeii we went to Mt. Vesuvius and had another wonderful guide! Wear good walking shoes and sunscreen! Well worth it - we highly recommend this adventure.

Cool Volcano Visit

We originally considered taking the small group day trip to Pompeii but ended up doing this private tour and it was so worth it! Really amazing to see the history of Pompeii and crazy to think that we were on an active volcano. Would recommend this to anyone without hestiation - the Roman guy made it so simple to book and our guide was incredibly knowledgeable.

AMAZING TOURS AND GELATO

Our Roman Guy tour guides were professionals- knowledgable with their work. Also, their recommendations for the best place to eat, and hang out were reliable. Hoping to go back, and can't wait for our next tour. Keep it up Roman Guy.
