Tickets for Pompeii & Mount Vesuvius: Guided Tour from Naples

Planning a history trip to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius? This guided Pompeii tour from Naples provides a captivating insight into an ancient Roman city and the unstoppable volcano which both preserved and destroyed it.

You'll set out from Naples around 10 am aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned bus equipped with a professional guide who, rather impressively, speaks English, Italian, Spanish, and French.

Your tour of Pompeii will take in some of its most important archaeological sights, like the ancient baths, forum, and even the local brothel, which were all buried in ash back in 79 AD.

After a delicious pizza lunch – included, of course – you'll make your way up 1,000 meters to Vesuvius National Park to learn about the still-active volcano and gaze out upon the Gulf of Naples.
