Description

This half-day shore excursion to the Pompeii ruins from Naples includes a private licensed guide. Absolutely the easiest and most informative way to learn about the legendary volcanic eruption of 79 AD!

Features of this half-day trip to the Pompeii ruins from Naples:

  • Pick-up at the cruise terminal
  • 45 min drive to Pompeii in air-conditioned vehicle
  • 2 hours at the ruins with a private licensed guide
  • Drop off at the ship.

From the pier, after a 45-minute ride in a comfortable, air-conditioned deluxe minivan or sedan, you will reach a place where time has stood still since 79 AD. Since that fateful day when the cataclysmic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius rained tons of ash and lava down on Pompeii, the Roman city remained buried in a perfectly preserved state until excavations began in the 18th century. What was brought to light is now one of Italy's most fascinating and frequented attractions.

At the Pompeii ruins, you will learn about the technique of pouring liquid plaster into the empty spaces in the lava to recreate the bodily forms that once filled the voids. In this way, we are able to see what the residents were doing at the time of the eruption. As you tour the streets of the ancient town with your guide you'll be walking in the steps of the Romans who lived there almost 2000 years ago, amongst the public baths, temples, markets and forums. The buildings are nothing less than intriguing, and some of the houses still contain their original marble decoration, well-preserved frescoes and splendid mosaics.

Faq

1. Is this tour private?

The tour is private just for your party; however, you can look for other travel companions to share the costs of the tour with.

2. Is the driver also a guide?

Our English-speaking drivers are NOT licensed guides. In order to provide you with the best-in-class service, our English-speaking driving guides have been trained to offer our clients a nice overview with information regarding the major highlights avoiding the expensive charges of hiring a private guide. Due to strict Italian laws & regulations that protect officially licensed guides, our driving guides can comment and explain the sights only from inside the vehicle but are not allowed to do so once they are outside the vehicle. They are regularly licensed instead to chauffeur the public. We highly recommend that you never book with any touring company that does not make this clear.

3. Does the driver go with us inside the monuments?

No, only a licensed guide is authorized to accompany you during the visit of sights. Our driver will drop you off close to the sights but will stay with the vehicle for the duration of your visit.

4. Does this tour include lunch and admission fees to sites?

No tickets or lunch are included in the rate. Please contact our office for pricing and reservations.

5. Does it include a guide?

A licensed guide for approximately 2 hours is included in the rate.

6. What is the duration of the tour?

The duration of this tour is 4 hours including pickup and drop off at the ship.

7. Do you guarantee the return to the ship on time?

In almost 30 years of business, we have never missed the ship that is why we have organized all itineraries to guarantee your return on time.

8. Is gratuity included in the price?

Tips are never included in our quotes. We think that a tip shouldn’t be included in the rate otherwise it would be a tax!!! Once in Italy do not feel as though you have to tip everyone because someone told you to. Tip only if you really liked the service. Tips are generally: 10% not bad 15 % great 20 % best tour in my life. Please report any abuse.
