Description

Meet at Via Cavour - a spear's throw from the Colosseum - and board a bus bound for Pompeii. Enjoy an air-conditioned coach ride (with free WiFi) to one of history's most fascinating sites. Once you arrive, you'll get skip-the-line access to this fascinating ancient city preserved by the lava from Mt. Vesuvius. After a day spent wandering through the eerily well-preserved remains, you'll board your bus again and be shuttled in air-conditioned comfort back to Rome.

In 79 AD Mount Vesuvius erupted, covering the ancient city of Pompeii in a layer of lapilli (molten fragments of stone). This force majeure froze the city, as if in amber. It's fascinating to be able to walk down ancient streets and imagine the busy city life that just suddenly stopped one day. Tinged with sadness, a visit here is nonetheless one of the best ways to bring history to life.

This full day excursion starts at 07:30 and lasts for about 12 hours. So prepare for a packed day of time travel. You start by making your way in the early morning to the Enjoy Rome tourist office (Via Cavour, 224). There you'll meet up with other travelers and board the coach for a comfortable, air-conditioned ride to the ancient site of Pompeii. Don't worry: there'll be plenty of stops for coffee and bathroom breaks along the way. And then, in the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius, you see it: the ancient city of Pompeii.

Imagine being able to go back in time and explore a city in the Roman empire; this is what this day trip offers. From the streets to the buildings to the everyday household objects - Pompeii is a glimpse into what life was really like almost 2,000 years ago. The preservation of Pompeii has also given the world a remarkable record of Roman paintings. Without Pompeii there would be virtually no record of the Roman art style.

The site is massive (64 hectares), and full of everything that made up a Roman city. Of course Pompeii has an amphitheater - which could seat around 20,000 people. Plus the villas of the rich, the more modest houses of the peasants - and even the brothels and bars at the edge of the city. If you're interested in ancient Roman religion, make sure to visit the Temple of Apollo. Set on a high podium with imposing steps, columns and a white marble altar it may inspire you to pay tribute to the sun, which will in all likelihood be beating down as you comb the city.

At the end of the day you'll be able to enjoy some much-deserved air conditioning as you head back to Rome. Take advantage of that WiFi and start posting your pics online as the bus takes you on a road that, like all others, leads back to Rome.

NOTE: This trip runs from 1 March to November 30th every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

A lovely trip to Pompeii, well organised and just enough time to walk around most of the site although there are far too many interesting sites to visit them all in just 4 hours! Would definitely recommend

No need to find connections and wait in line. This trip streamlined the experience. Comfortable air conditioned buses in 40 degree Celsius heat was a big plus.

Prompt service. No wifi as advertised. Good ac service. Toilet would be better than comfort break on bus. Efficient so would use again
