Naples Shore Excursion: Naples City and Pompeii Half Day Sightseeing Tour

activities / Guided tours

Tour description provided by Viator

See Southern Italy's highlights in one day on a combined Naples city tour and visit to the world-famous site of Pompeii. This shore excursion is the best way for cruise passengers arriving in the port of Naples to experience the lively city of Naples and visit Pompeii, the largest archaeological site in Europe, on a single day trip.

Your comprehensive guided tour of Naples includes stops at the Cathedral to visit its Treasure Chapel and S.Restituta basilica, dating back to the 4th century. You will also drive to Plebiscite Square to see the Royal Palace, the beautiful church of St Francesco di Paula, the Town Hall Square and the New Castle built by the French Family of Anjou. Before driving to Pompeii, you will enjoy wonderful views of the picturesque baroque city of Naples from the terraces of Posillipo. Afterwards, your visit to the haunting ruins of Pompeii will take you back to the fateful day in 79 A.D. when neighboring Mt. Vesuvius erupted, covering the prosperous Roman city in deadly volcanic ash. On your visit to Pompeii you will be able to explore the fascinating site, expertly led by your tour guide. You'll see the Forum, the Thermal Baths, Vetti's House and the "Lupanare" brothel, all buried by volcanic ashes during the eruption.
