Overview

Join this day trip from Rome to two fascinating Italian sights. First, you’ll enjoy a Pompeii private tour, to discover life in an Ancient Roman town with your expert, local guide. Then, continue to vibrant, historic Naples and discover the city’s unique culture.
In Pompeii, you’ll see what made Ancient Roman culture so vibrant. From huge communal bathhouses to open-air theaters, fast-food businesses and grand villas, adorned in mosaics and frescoes. Discover the history of the terrible eruption of Mount Vesuvius and see the moving plaster-casts of those who died.
After a break for lunch, you’ll continue to Naples. You’ll see all major sights of the historic city, including Piazza dei Plebisictio, with iconic architecture and a complementary coffee at world-famous Gambrinus.
Finally, tour the churches of the Spaccanapoli, including Gesù Nuovo, Santa Chiara and the Sansevero Chapel, rich in occult mysteries. View traditional Neapolitan nativity scenes on Via San Gregorio Armeno.
