Join Our Private Day Trip from Rome to Pompeii & Mount Vesuvius
Take your trip to Rome and turn it into an Italian holiday you’ll treasure for a lifetime.
Join us on a day trip from Rome, where you will enjoy one of our private tours of Pompeii; the best-preserved remains of an Ancient Roman town in the world. Our expert guide will bring this ghost town to life, as you hear about the day-to-day life of Pompeii, before that life cruelly ended.
Continue to Mount Vesuvius, the world’s most famous volcano and the destroyer of many Roman settlements, including Pompeii. Enjoy the best possible view of the Bay of Naples from the summit of this sleeping giant.
An Incredible Pompeii & Vesuvius Private Tour
Our local guide is an expert on Roman history. They will show you around the town and bring those ordinary scenes of Ancient Roman life, long dead, to life.
Get to know the town as it was, as you join us on this incomparable Pompeii tour. Discover more about the horrendous eruption of Mount Vesuvius, that killed the citizens of Pompeii where they stood and buried the town under 25ft of molten ash.
Climb Mount Vesuvius
Join our expert tour leader on an odyssey to the summit of Mount Vesuvius. First, you will drive to the highest point you can reach on the Mountain, where you will already find a spectacular view of the Bay of Naples. At this point, you will have already seen the river of petrified lava, flowing down the Mountain, from the eruption in 1906.
From the parking lot, you will have 1km 600m to climb before you reach the crater. This should take about half-an-hour. As the path is gravel and the incline is quite sharp, it can be difficult to climb so wear good walking shoes! If you have mobility issues, ascending all the way to the crater may not be appropriate.
Once you reach the crater, see a perfect view down to across Naples and the surrounding regions. The islands of Ischia and Capri jut out from the ocean. Stand atop Vesuvius, knowing that, somewhere below this crater, is a bubbling pot of molten lava.
In case of adverse weather conditions, an assent to the summit of Vesuvius is prohibited. In which case, you will be presented with options for an alternative to this section of the itinerary.

Nothing complements a visit to Pompeii like visiting Vesuvius. Pompeii is a man-made wonder, miraculously preserved in time; Vesuvius is the natural wonder that destroyed it. Seeing both together gives you massive respect for ancient history, and for the impossible power of nature. Experience a day that’s truly remarkable on our private tour of Pompeii & Mount Vesuvius.
