best private pompeii tour

LivTours’ Pompeii Day Trip from Rome Tour is the perfect semi-private tour for travelers who are visiting Rome and want to experience a bit of southern Italy.  Touring Pompeii allows you to dive into the past, immersing yourself in the expansive and unique archaeological ruins that have attracted travelers for centuries. With your expert guide and group of no more than six travelers, you will explore the archaeological excavations of Pompeii.  Buried under a blanket of ash during the eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD, they remained until 1500 years later when excavations started.  

Your Pompeii Day Trip from Rome is a semi-private tour which means you will be touring this archaeological site with a maximum of six people in your group.  This makes your tour more personalized with an emphasis on quality over quantity. Optimize your time as best as possible while on vacation and stick with smaller groups, so that no time is wasted and you have direct contact with our guide. A semi-private tour is a great way to meet like-minded people and enjoy your tour to its fullest!

LivTours’ Pompeii Day Trip from Rome starts by meeting your expert chauffeur at a pick-up point in central Rome.  Knowing you are in excellent hands, this is your time to sit back and enjoy the panoramic views as you are comfortably transported to Naples. Once you are in Naples, your driver will take you to see one of the most vibrant parts of the city! 

This is the Italy you have seen on TV and in movies, so get your cameras ready to  capture this bustling city center, as well as the magnificent Gulf of Naples. This picture is a perfect city with clothes drying on lines that cross the streets, typical windowsill scenes and the  carefree (sometimes hair-raising) attitude of scooter drivers.  All these factors add up to making Naples the vibrant urban city of the south! 

No trip to Naples is complete without tasting its food. Ask most Italians and they will admit that anything from Naples is somehow tastier! That is why LivTours offers you a light lunch of typical pizza and a drink in Naples to get you ready for the second part of the day. Come see for yourself if what they say about Neapolitan food is true. Buon appetito!


After you have finished lunch, your driver will take you directly to Pompeii. You will be met by your professional archeologist guide who will immerse you in this well-preserved archaeological site on a 2.5 hour journey into the past. You will enjoy privileged access to Pompeii, so you will not waste a minute of your tour! You will see for yourself how the ancient Romans designed this thriving ancient port, and trading town as you piece together its history with the help of your expert Pompeii guide.

One of the beauties of a semi-private tour is that you can ask as many questions as you like and satisfy your curiosity for history. Your Pompeii tour will take you to explore the archaeological site in depth. You will learn about  the forum of Pompeii, the homes of its residents, the public baths, the temple of Isis, the house of the gladiators and of course all about that fateful day 2000 years ago, when the residents of Pompeii were buried alive.

Once you have finished your tour of this active excavation site, taken in the beautiful views and learned about its history, your driver will take you back to Rome in comfort, allowing you to enjoy the rest of your evening in Italy’s capital.

  • Wonderful experience! Great memories!

    While in Rome with our daughter (age 13), we were somewhat concerned about the difficulties of taking a day trip to Pompeii. But by booking this tour with LivItaly, the worries and difficulties vanished. We were met at the train station by the smiling LivItaly rep who got us on the correct train and gave us all the information we needed. At the Pompeii station, again, our smiling LivItaly guide was waiting for us with snacks and bottled water and honestly, we felt completely pampered for the rest of the day. Pompeii is definitely worth a visit but had we done it on our own, we wouldn't have enjoyed it even half as much as we did on this tour! The pizza down south is to die for!!

  • Highly recommend this tour

    During our week in Rome, we took one day for a day trip to Pompeii. Taking the train was very easy and we were met at the entrance to Pompeii by our really friendly guide named Giorgio. He was ready with smiles and laughs and plenty of bottled water. Pompeii is much larger than we had imagined so we were especially relieved to have a guide to help us navigate the ruins. Giorgio made ancient Pompeii come alive for us -- both as a thriving city as well as what happened during the tragedy of the volcano eruption. We were enthralled with his stories and his wonderful comunication skills. Thanks to this tour and to Giorgio, we had an amazing time.

  • Multiple tours with LivItaly

    Our family (2 adults, 2 children ages 14 and 10) did three tours with LivItaly during our recent trip to Rome (Colosseum with Underground/Roman Forum/Pallatine Hill, Early Entrance Vatican Museum with Sistene Chapel/St. Peter’s Basilica, and Pompeii Day Trip with Amalfi Coast. All guides were fantastic and very knowledgeable. We loved the small group size. Would highly recommend.
