Tour Details

Old meets new on this Naples and Pompeii tour that takes you to one of Italy's largest cities as well as one of its most famous ruins. Your Naples and Pompeii day tour provides you with a glimpse of both modern and ancient Italy by giving you time to enjoy the sights of both locales.

Your tour begins with pick up from your hotel and a 2-hour sightseeing trip through Naples that includes a stop at the renowned Naples Cathedral, the city's main church and home to the Royal Chapel of the Treasure of San Gerrano. This chapel contains an assortment of historic artwork by premier painters dating back to the 17th century. From there, you'll continue onward to New Castle, a medieval castle with a storied past. The castle is mainly known for its impressive arch, a single-sided white marble arch that is 35 meters tall; its Renaissance style is highly regarded by architects worldwide. Then stop at Posillipo for a panoramic photo opportunity on the St. Antonio church terrace for the best view of the city and the bay. End your Naples city tour at Plebiscite Square to admire the front of the Royal Palace. This structure was once a residence of the Bourbon Kings, a European royal house of French origin.

Pompeii, the second city on your tour, is one of Italy's most popular attractions; it gets more than 2 million visitors each year. This partially-buried town was severely damaged in a volcanic eruption by Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Among the sights your guide will show you are the Forum and the House of the Vetti. The Forum at Pompeii is a public square that was used as a marketplace as well as a site for political discourse and other diverse activities. The House of the Vetti is a well-preserved luxury house that was owned by two freedmen; it's known for its extensive frescoes and decorations that provide a glimpse at ancient Italy and has proven a boon for archeologists. After visiting Pompeii, your tour will return to Naples. For a fun morning of sightseeing, you won't find a better tour than this Naples and Pompeii day trip.
