Rome to Pompeii Shuttle Bus & Independent Day Trip

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    Your day trip starts as you board your coach or minibus in central Rome for the 3.5-hour drive to Pompeii, one of the world’s most fascinating archaeological sites—a city frozen in a time capsule. An onboard host is available to answer any questions during the journey. You will be learning about Pompeii, which was destroyed by heavy volcanic ash in 79 AD when Mt Vesuvius erupted, killing the residents of the city.
    When you arrive, you are free to explore own your own until it’s time to return to Rome. Stroll down the ancient lanes, imagining what life was like here 2,000 years ago. Pass the limestone columns still standing along Via degli Augustali, and check out artifacts and ruins from the forum, thermal baths, temple, theater and homes. All walking paths are marked with frescoes that depict scenes from daily life in Pompeii, which give context to what you’re seeing and help you find your way around.
    Head back to your tour vehicle in the mid-afternoon for the drive back to Rome, where your day trip ends.
    Optional excavations and tour upgrade:
    When booking, you have the option to include access to the excavations of Pompeii and a 2-hour tour with an informative guide. This tour is limited to 25 people.

    Our day trip to Pompeii from Rome was a definite highlight to our trip. The drive was broken up with a short stop both ways. Our guide on the bus was personable and informative. Our tour guide at Pompeii, Flo (short I think for Florecia)...More
