Your LivTours Pompeii and Naples Tour from Rome is a private day trip via high speed train starting in Rome’s Termini Train Station where you will meet a LivTours greeter. Your greeter will have your train tickets and prepare you for your day.
Your Premium Class seating allows you to enjoy snacks and wi-fi during your one hour journey to Naples. You will be traveling at a maximum speed of 185 miles/hr, so you will be arriving in Naples Central Station in just over an hour!
Your LivTours local guide will meet you upon your arrival to Naples and will accompany you on a local train, the Circumvesuviana, to the famous Pompeii ruins, with Mount Vesuvius getting closer. Arriving in Pompeii, you will head right to the ruins where you will enjoy exclusive access, avoiding the often long line. Your guide will take you on a journey through this incredible ancient city, weaving through its ruins, visiting different parts of the city like the Pompeii Forum, Houses and Baths. Discover the many still-standing structures, mosaics and frescoes, remaining here even after it was buried in 4-6 meters of ash and rock after the eruption.
Once you have finished investigating Pompeii, you will travel back by train to Naples. You will have a chance to admire the juxtaposition of beauty of this spirited city, strolling down old narrow streets with graffiti ridden walls, washing lines and locals going about their business and then suddenly find yourself surrounded by elegant architecture and impressive buildings like The Royal Palace. This is, of course, the birthplace of pizza, and so your next stop will be for a delicious Neapolitan pizza at a local spot. Savor every last bite, before making your way to the promenade for a walk along the seafront with magnificent views!
Naples enjoys about 1.5 miles of pedestrianized seafront that runs along the coast. You will enjoy wonderful views of the bay of Naples, the Island of Capri and Mount Vesuvius in the near distance. Along the path are also two lovely waterfront castles, parks, villas, restaurants and bars. The gorgeous sunset lighting makes this path particularly pleasant at dusk and you will find many locals here at the end of the workday.
Your guide will accompany you back to the train station after your seaside stroll to catch your high-speed train back to Rome. You will arrive back by early evening.
Want even more time in this vibrant city? No problem. First Class guests on Italo Railway are also given the option of changing their train ticket time, so if you would like to leave a bit later (or even earlier), you can take advantage of this flexibility to best optimize your tour day. Please be aware that you will have to change your ticket at the Italo desk at the train station before your original departure time, and change is dependent on the availability of seats. We strongly advise you to request your change as early in the day as possible.

"I did the private tour with a guide, Marianna, and my husband. The city of Pompeii was amazing and so interesting. Marianna really made the city come to life by pointing out so many details that we would have never even notices with out her. The remains of one of the victims in a plaster cast was heartbreaking. After Pompeii, we went to Naples for a tour and a waterfront lunch. It was a great day and probably the highlight of our trip to Italy."

Wonderful! Book it!
"AMAZING!!! Can't say enough good things about the all-day tour from Rome to Pompeii. Our family wanted to do a trip from Rome to Pompeii, but we did not want to have to wake up too early. We tried to look into going on our own, but most trains were sold out and it was very complicated, so we looked at LivTours! We met with a driver who safely drove us 3 hours in a van. He dropped us off with our guide, Emma, who taught us so much and answered all of our questions. After the tour we went to have lunch on the water in Naples. Then 3 more hrs in the van back to Rome. Super easy. It was a long day, but stress-free and comfortable. Pricey, but very worth it!"

Great tour from Rome - by train.
"This was awesome! I highly recommend this tour! Going into it, I did not know how long the day was going to be but it was perfect. I lived it and so did my 2 teenage boys. LivTours made sure the entire travel day went smoothly. We met a guide at the Rome train station who gave us our tickets and showed us to the train. When we arrived in Naples we met up with our guide for the day who took us to PompeiiI think this way was much easier than a 3 hour car ride. Our guide was also great. She knew so much information and she was very kind and easy to get along with. We went to lunch in Naples with a gorgeous view. I feel like LivTours know how to do tours the right way. They have small groups (of 6!) if you don't do a private tour. The guides are all locals from the area so we were able to learn so much from them. "
