Full-Day Round Trip of Pompei from Rome

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    A professional driver will guide your clients during an amazing daily round trip tour of Pompeii and its vast archaeological site in southern Italy’s Campania region. The city is mainly famous for the ruins of the ancient city of Pompeii, located in the zone of Pompei Scavi. The Shrine of Our Lady of Pompei, dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary, has become a site for Catholic pilgrimages in recent years. Once a thriving and sophisticated Roman city, Pompeii was buried in meters of ash and pumice after the catastrophic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 C.E.

    Unlike Rome, where ancient monuments have suffered millennia of weathering, re-use and pillaging, Pompei has remained intact until the present day, not only as far as its buildings are concerned, but also as regards the contents inside the houses and shops, providing an absolutely fascinating picture of "daily" life.

    The walls of the houses are covered with electoral propaganda messages or risque jokes aimed at particular citizens. The signs on the shop doorways indicate the activity carried out there or the name of the owner. Alongside the elegant villas belonging to the nobility and the luxurious residences of the middle class, stand modest houses where several families lived.

    The picture of this amazing Italian treasure is still being completed: emergency digs during roadworks on the Naples–Salerno motorway have revealed the full extent of a frescoed leisure complex close to the Sarno river. Near the coast of the Bay of Naples, the site features excavated ruins that visitors can freely explore. The tour lasts approximately 10 hours.

    A tour guide is not included, a suggestion may be to bring a guidebook. Remember to check the website for opening times of the location and the price of entrance ticket. Entrance fees are not included.
