Pompeii and Herculaneum are two of Europe’s most extraordinary archaeological sites, offering unparalleled insights into ancient Roman life and civilization. However, reaching them comes with logistic challenges. We’ve taken the stress out of the equation, crafting a tour that delivers the most seamless experience so you can spend your time visiting incredible sites and making lifelong memories, not sitting on a cramped bus!
After checking in at Termini Station, relax and enjoy the scenery while one of Europe’s finest trains halves the travel time to Naples. As you get off the train in Naples, meet your local tour guide and head to an air-conditioned coach bound for our first destination – Pompeii!

Experience a world frozen in time as you stroll along the cobblestone ancient roads where perfectly conserved ancient bakeries, shops, stalls, residences, public baths, and even brothels remain! Pompei was a large and diverse city with a healthy mix of wealthy elite, merchants, artisans, and slaves whose lives you’ll get a crystal-clear glimpse of on a 2-hour walking tour. The tour includes the tragic plaster casts of the Pompeiians who were immortalized on that devastating day by pyroclastic flow and ash.

Upon conclusion of the guided tour in Pompeii, prepare to sink your teeth into an authentic Neapolitan pizza in the most unique of locations, a pizzeria converted from an antique rail station that once served the royal XVIII century train line! After some rest-and-recharge with top-notch local fare, a short transfer will take us to our second destination.

While Pompeii was mainly preserved thanks to a thick layer of volcanic ash and pumice, Herculaneum was buried under a mixture of ash and mud, which solidified over time to create the perfect protection for the fascinating world left frozen in time beneath it. Less than half the size of Pompeii, Herculaneum was a small coastal city characterized by remarkably preserved wooden structures and vibrant frescoes. With an expert guide by your side, walk in the footsteps of the noble Romans who once called this lost city home.

Visiting the two remarkable ancient cities of Pompei and Herculaneum, gain a vast understanding of the complex world that once thrived along the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius. Upon conclusion of your tour, a short transfer will bring you back to Naples Station, where your fast train back to Rome awaits!
