LivTours’ Pompeii Day Trip from Rome starts by meeting your expert chauffeur 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 appetit!
THE STUNNING RUINS OF POMPEII
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.
