Sites Visited

  • Pompeii Archaeological Area

When Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD it left a flourishing city in ruin but it also captured a day in the life of a Pompeian forever fossilized – turning what once was tragic into modern day magic.

This is the best option for travelers who have dreamt of visiting this famous UNESCO World Heritage Site but have limited vacation time. Departing from Rome by high-speed train, you’ll be able to enjoy the full 2-hour expertly guided visit to the ruins of Pompeii in this unique excursion. Your entrance tickets and reservation fees are all included as well as your seating arrangements. All you have to do is meet your City Wonders representative and they’ll do the rest.

Enjoy the air-conditioned ride as Italy’s countryside whips past your window during this relaxing one-hour ride to Naples. There, your City Wonders driver will meet and escort you via private coach to the beautiful and haunting Pompeii ruins where you will be introduced to your expert, local English-speaking guide.

These volcanic ruins, immortalized in pumice and ash, have quite literally allowed history to be frozen in time. Like no other experience on Earth, you’ll enjoy a fully-guided 2-hour tour of an absolutely awe-inspiring archeological area. Walk among the cobblestone streets where Pompeian villagers and aristocrats alike once went about their daily activities.

Explore their homes, including recently opened residences of the ancient elite, and marvel at the brightly painted frescoes and marvelous mosaics. Your guide will bring these relics back to life through rich, entertaining and educating stories and commentary, including details only locals would know.

Once you’ve seen it all, we’ll give you a short break for souvenir shopping or perhaps a spot of coffee from the authentic artisans and local vendors. You’ll once again meet up with your City Wonders dedicated driver who will take you back to meet your high-speed train in Naples. Once again all your tickets and seating arrangements will be taken care of. Then it is whoosh, off to Rome again with enough time to soak in more of the Eternal City.

If you’d like to extend your day discovering the marvels that Italy offers south of the capital, our VIP Pompeii and Sorrento Tour from Rome includes the same high-speed train trip to Naples for your visit to Pompeii, plus an incredible afternoon filled with the narrow streets and breathtaking views that have made the town of Sorrento so famous.
