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.

Claudia was so good! I would definitely book again!

Great to have the logistics of this trip taken care of by Enjoy Rome. We picked this tour because it allowed us the most time in Pompeii. I can't imagine having less time in Pompeii.

Everything left on time. Had an excellent guide, Claudia, who looked after us in every way possible.
We decided to explore the ruins without a guide as we walk quite slow and wouldn't have been able to keep up.
The queue for skip the line was longer than the pay on the gate but we weren't held up much. Staff didn't recognise our e- tickets.
Wear sensible shoes, sun hat and sun screen. We visited in March and it was hot then!.
Our only issue, we could have done with another couple of hours on site.

Our tour guide Claudia was so lovely and helpful. I really would recommend this tour to anyone. We didn't do the guided tour, just walked around with our map. We enjoyed doing it this way, but each to their own. It was amazing seeing it all, very surreal to think of what was there before. Wear comfy shoes as it's a LOT of waking and it's a good idea to take an empty water bottle to fill up along the way. If your thinking of boooking this, then 100% go for it!!!

You will have a small walk to get the bus about 5-10 mins.
The tour guide will tell you not to buy food inside Pompeii but it is about the same price as the awfull halfway stop and looks a lot nicer.
Once inside the audio sets go on and on but some of the buildings it tells you to go in this room but you can't cause they have shut it off to the public.
But all in all a good experience and well worth the trip.

I was very happy with the bus tour guide. Having 4 hours to explore the ruins was great but 6 would have been perfect, that place is huge!! I heard some tours only offer 2 hours which will barely let you see anything.

Ottimo servizio, la guida Claudia molto disponibile e gentile, ci ha dato utilissime indicazioni per il giro in Pompei e suggerimenti per I giorni seguenti a Roma.
Pulman comodo e servizio puntuale. Salta la Cosa permette di guadagnare un'ora alla biglietteria, cosa utile per una visita in giornata.
