Why take this tour

Experience the thrill of a tour of Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. See the world’s most famous archaeological site and volcano in a tour designed to give you the best of both.

You’ll meet a member of our team at the main entrance to Pompeii. There, you’ll get your tickets booked in advance which will enable you to skip the queue. Your friendly expert guide will be an experienced archaeologist keen to share their passion for this once vibrant, prosperous city. 

Starting at Porta Marina, you’ll stroll to the granaries of the impressive Forum, the centre of Pomepii’s political and cultural life. Here you’ll see an eerie exhibition of casts of Pompeiian victims of the eruption. Nearby you’ll gaze in wonder at the Temple of Apollo and the Sanctuary of the Lares. And at the Macellum, you’ll easily imagine the hustle and bustle of the market.

Following a short break to relax and refresh, you’ll board our comfortable minivan to head to Vesuvius. This sleeping giant last erupted in 1944 since which time it has lain resting. But don’t be deceived, it is still active! However, these days its activity is largely limited to fumaroles - emissions of hot sulphurous gases.

Your tour of Mount Vesuvius then takes you on a spectacular journey through the unspoilt scenery of the national park. A short uphill walk takes you to the lip of the crater where you can gaze into the immense chasm. There are walking trails which circle the crater offering breathtaking panoramic views. Take a pause to look around you and admire the Gulf of Naples, Pompeii, Capri and Sorrento.

Few places contain so much natural beauty and evidence of ancient civilizations in such a small space. At Askos Tours, we have all the expertise and passion to help you make the most of your experience. With us, your tour of Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius will be magical, inspiring and truly awesome.

Our Reviews

  • Amazing

    Unfortunately I do not recall the names of our guides, but both were just amazing! The Pompeii tour was so informative and thorough it was great. The Mt. Vesuvius tour was very physically taxing, but the climb was very worth it.

  • Great Guide, Great Tour!

    Great tour! Our guide was an archeologist – he was SO knowledgeable about Pompeii! I imagine that this area could seem overwhelming without a guide who can point out the highlights, and our guide was incredible.
