Sun, Thu & Sat

  • Literally frozen in time with its haunting volcanic nemesis, Mount Vesuvius, looming ominously in the background, no site is as interesting as it is emotionally harrowing as the city of Pompeii. It is a must-see day trip from Rome and worth the excursion, which we provide via escorted air-conditioned coach.
  • Your expert, English-speaking tour leader will share interesting and educational history about this site and others you will pass, such as the Bay of Naples, on your way to and from Pompeii. Once you arrive, we’ll escort you past the crowds, avoiding hours of waiting for tickets, straight inside thanks to our exclusive Skip-the-Line access.
  • Like no other place on Earth, enjoy three full hours to explore at your leisure (no guided tour provided inside Pompeii). Marvel at the Temple of Apollo ruins, Suburban Baths and preserved frescos, Great Theatre, and ancient shops and residences, as you easily imagine what life was like in this once-bustling town. Timeless and tragic, be sure to visit this UNESCO World Heritage Site and archaeological eccentricity.

Sites Visited

  • Pompeii Archaeological Site

Join us for a day tour from Rome to one of Italy’s most famous archaeological sites, the incredible ancient city of Pompeii. Begin your journey in Rome, where you will meet a City Wonders Tour Coordinator and board your air-conditioned coach to Pompeii. During the bus journey, your Coordinator will share interesting commentary and insights about the ancient city and the surrounding Roman empire.

Once you arrive in Pompeii, your Coordinator will escort you to the entrance of the site and whisk you past the long entrance lines directly into the city with our Skip the Line Access. Here, you will have 3 hours of free time to explore at your leisure.

As you walk independently inside the archaeological site of Pompeii, you will feel as if you’re walking in the past: visiting ancient villas adorned with frescoes and mosaics, bath houses, and even fast food restaurants. You will also see Mt. Vesuvius looming in the distance as you examine the chilling death casts of people and animals caught in the volcano’s famous eruption.

After you’ve explored everything Pompeii has to offer, make your way back to your designated meeting point for pick up and transport back to Rome on your coach.
