Cruise Ship to Pompeii

What are options to getting safely to Pompeii from our cruise ship, which will be stopping in Naples for 12 hours? Are there reputable tours offered from the Port?

You can hire a car service to drive you (about a half hour to 45 minutes each way, depending on traffic), a taxi (fixed fares apply) or you can take the bus (a short 1/3 mile from the cruise port) or a suburban train (a mile and a quarter from the cruise port).

The fixed fare for the taxi, round trip with a two hour stop at Pompei, is 90 Euro. You can certainly negotiate for a longer stay. Taxi rates can be found on the city web site here: …napoli.it/flex/…16974 (look halfway down the page for the Adobe files)

The best option, as far as being safely delivered back before the ship leaves, is very probably to take one of the excursions no doubt offered to passengers?

If looking for a less expensive alternative, note that only properly qualified and authorised guides are allowed to work within the site - with those to be found waiting at the entrance supposed to charge slightly under €150 if taken just for your own party, or about €10-12 to each person in the impromptu groups of 10-12 they gather together!

When that's coupled with the cost of having a vehicle and driver wait outside whilst you're in there, again fairly pricey?

For public transport alternatives, including the one we prefer, try reading through...
