Why take this tour

Make the most of your time in Campania by taking a tour which combines the highlights of Pompeii and Vesuvius. This is a unique not-to-be-missed opportunity to explore the world’s most famous archaeological site and volcano.

We’ll happily collect you at your accommodation anywhere in the province of Naples or on the Amalfi coast. Your friendly driver will turn guide as he points out places of interest on your scenic journey to Pompeii.

In Pompeii you’ll meet your personal expert archaeologist guide who’ll escort you in past the waiting queue. One of the things that’ll surprise you is the sheer size of the site - it’s much bigger than you imagined. Also, the remarkable intactness and extraordinary degree of conservation will take your breath away. You’ll visit all the main monuments of the ancient town. At the thermal baths, you’ll learn of its social function and the recreational bathing culture which developed. And, provided you’re of an appropriate age, you’ll take a peek inside the Lupanare, the world’s oldest house of pleasure.

Tour of Pompeii over, and lunch taken - with an insider tip from your driver - you’ll head to Vesuvius. The drive from Pompeii to Vesuvius is a 30 minute journey of fantastic views. You’ll wind your way through dense woods, lush Mediterranean vegetation and arid lava fields. A short 700m uphill walk takes you to the lip of the crater where you can gaze into the immense chasm. Take a moment to take in the breathtaking panoramic views. Then feel shivers down your spine while contemplating the rivers of solidified lava from the most recent eruptions. Though sleeping, it’s still active. However these days its activity is largely limited to fumaroles - emissions of hot sulphurous gases.

Descending the crater, you’ll board your comfortable transport and be returned to your accommodation. With head still reeling from this exceptional tour of Vesuvius and Pompeii, you’ll congratulate yourself on a day well spent.

Our Reviews

  • Awesome tour to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius

    We enjoyed our tour to Pompeii und Mount Vesuvius a lot. Our driver “Roberto” picked us up from our hotel. He was on time, polite and speaks very good English. The Mini-Van, was clean and AC worked very well. In Pompeii we had a German speaking guide “Pietro”. He did a great job, the tour with him was very informative and his German was very, very good. Afterwards we went to Mount Vesuvius. All the tickets were already organized and we had nearly no waiting times. Finally we also booked an airport shuttle. Here the driver was “Francesco”, a friendly character with knowledge about Naples History as well.
    In summary, we had a pleasant time and can highly recommend Askos tours and their coworkers. Even our children (9 + 13yrs) had fun and are still talking about Naples / Pompeii.
