    What to Expect
    After pickup by private minivan from your Rome hotel, your day trip starts with the approximate 3-hour drive out of the city to Italy’s Campania region. During the journey, catch a glimpse of the Benedictine monastery the Abbey of Montecassino.

    When you arrive in Pompeii, pay your own entrance fee before heading inside to explore the archaeological ruins that make up this UNESCO World Heritage site and provide fascinating insight into what life was like here during the Imperial age. If you select the upgrade option when booking, you’ll meet an experienced guide to tour the ruins. If not, you’ll explore independently.

    Located at the foot of Mt Vesuvius, ancient Pompeii was a Roman city that met a tragic end when it was covered in volcanic ash during the eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD. Today, the well-preserved ruins of lanes, homes and public structures depict daily life in the city, where residents once bustled around now-empty sites like the limestone Forum, thermal baths and piazza. See the remains of the Teatro Grande, a theater that once held 5,000 people, and check out the Lupanar, a brothel decorated with frescoes.

    When your time at Pompeii ends, return to your minivan for the private drive back to Rome, stopping on the way for lunch at a restaurant (own expense). Your day trip then finishes with hotel drop-off.
