Easy bus trip from Rome. The only tour I could find that gave plenty of time to explore Pompeii (others seemed to be just a two hour stop). Nice host on bus. Enjoyed the day.

Pompeii from Rome

The tour takes a rest stop at a little family store coming to and from Pompeii and the store owners are quite hostile if you don't by anything. Other than that the tour guide is great and so is Pompei

No trip to the stunning Italian region of Campania is complete without a Pompeii day trip! Whether you are staying in the capital city Rome, exploring the Amalfi Coast or eating pizza in Naples, to visit Pompeii is an easy half or full-day excursion. 

Pompeii is the ancient Roman city that was buried beneath burning ash during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. This volcanic explosion perfectly preserved the city; the stunning ruins are now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Is it possible to visit Pompeii and Herculaneum together? Yes, visitors often combine a tour of Pompeii with the nearby ruins of Herculaneum, and the Mount Vesuvius National Park. 

Why Visit Pompeii?

The Pompeii site draws thousands of visitors every year. They come to see the fascinating history of Ancient Rome preserved in the stunning ruins. Also, many people choose combined tours of the historical site with surrounding vineyards, or even a cruise along the glittering Mediterranean. 

Trips to Pompeii

Amalfi to Pompeii

Amalfi and Pompeii are both UNESCO World Heritage sites, famous for their beauty, history and incredible views. If you are staying along the rugged Amalfi Coast, it is easy to visit Pompeii. There are many tours to the ancient city. Returning from Pompeii to Amalfi, you can even combine your Pompeii tour with a boat trip! What better way to visit southern Italy than across the Mediterranean? 

Naples to Pompeii

If you are staying in Naples, trips to Pompeii are a must! There is only 25 km distance from Pompeii to Naples and Circumvesuvaiana trains run every day. The Italian railway system can be tricky to navigate, so for a smooth hassle-free journey, book one of the many tours from the capital of Campania! Naples is the perfect vantage point to explore the entire region. If you want to work off some of that famous Neapolitan pizza, why not combine your Pompeii day trip with a hike up Mount Vesuvius? You will be rewarded with some stunning views! 

Rome to Pompeii

At a whopping 241 km distance, is it possible to visit Pompeii from Rome? The answer is yes! You can choose to make your way to Pompeii by public transport, or join a group tour or private tour to the archaeological site. Of course, the list of attractions, museums, and activities in Rome is endless. A day trip from Rome to Pompeii is a great opportunity to experience another part of history. Leave the crowds and bustle of Rome behind to enjoy a full day of action-packed sightseeing with an expert tour guide! 

Sorrento to Pompeii

There are many day tours from Sorrento to Pompeii; these two cities are right next to each other! The short travel time ensures that you will have plenty of time to wander around the fascinating ruins of Pompeii, why not do an audio tour at your leisure, or check out the plaster casts in the museum? If you have the energy, you can climb up the surrounding hills and enjoy breathtaking views across all of Campania. After all that walking, why not treat yourself to a gastronomical experience or a relaxing glass of wine at a nearby vineyard? 

When is the best time to visit Pompeii? 

If you are visiting in the summer months, remember that Italy is very hot in July and August. If you want to visit Pompeii in the summer, then make sure you bring sunscreen and a hat! The most pleasant temperatures are during Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November). Also, there will be fewer tourists! 

During peak seasons (summer months and holidays) there may be crowds visiting Pompeii. Most tours will arrange visits before or after opening hours, meaning that if you want to visit the ancient site in peace, book a private tour to enjoy the true splendor of Pompeii.

How can I arrange day trips to Pompeii? 

If you are traveling by public transport, the nearest station is Pompeii Scavi. The trains are regular, but the timetables can be confusing, and you may need to book in advance. If you are short on time then booking a tour is the best way to enjoy a Pompeii day trip! 

Where can I get tickets to Pompeii? 

The ticket office is located at Porta Marina, one of the seven gates guarding the ancient Roman city of Pompeii. Don’t worry though you won’t have to buy your tickets on site when you book your trip ahead of time. Book your Pompeii day trip online to skip those queues and get exclusive access to the historical site. If you finish early, maybe you will catch the sunset over the Italian hills of Campania!
