EXCLUSIVE VOLCANO POMPEII DAY TOUR

Mystery and adventure are well shaped in this exclusive Volcano Pompeii day tour. Combine a private guided tour of Pompeii haunting ruins with a drive up to Mt Vesuvius. Your private driver/guide accompanies you throughout the day. From the time he picks you up at your hotel, meet your private guide in Pompeii, take a ride up Mt Vesuvius and return back to your hotel. Learn curiosities, facts and stories of the devastating day that Pompeii was buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. From archaeological haunts to the legendary Mt Vesuvius this exclusive Volcano Pompeii day tour offers the opportunity to experience natural and cultural heritage sites in comfort and style.

Your exclusive Volcano Pompeii day tour begins with an approx. 30 minute drive (traffic pending) in the comfort of a private deluxe vehicle. During the journey your expert driver/guide provides running commentaries about the places you see and the venues you visit. Meet your local guide at the awe inspiring archaeological area of Pompeii. Enjoy a guided tour of Pompeii top sights. Learn about life in ancient Rome and how the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius created this amazing city frozen in time. Walk down the old Roman high streets just as the Romans did. On August 24th in 79 AD a massive volcanic eruption destroyed the city. Tons of lava instantly petrified the bodies of 2000 of its inhabitants. This natural preservation provides an intimate look into the Roman private life in ancient times. Today two thirds of the city has been excavated and the ruins of a flourishing civilization have been brought to life again. Because of the airtight conditions beneath the lava Pompeii is the most well-preserved ancient city in the world with streets and buildings providing detailed information of the living conditions of the Romans.

At the end of your guided tour say goodbye to your Pompeii guide. Travel towards the Mt Vesuvius, the famous volcano that earned its reputation from a series of deadly eruptions that culminated in the destruction of Pompeii. Your ride up Mt. Vesuvius National Park begins with the slow trip up the windy road up the hill until the parking lot to the crater. When you reach a level of about 3000 feet above sea level you come to the end of the road. To hike to the top of the Mt Vesuvius you must leave the vehicle behind here and take an approx. 30 minute upward hike of moderate difficulty to the crater edge which reaches approximately 3800 feet above sea level and another 25 minute back down. However, from the top the panoramic views over the Bay of Naples and fresh air are well worth the effort! At the end of your exclusive Volcano Pompeii day tour return back to your hotel.  Contact us for your exclusive Pompeii and Volcano private day trip.

    Vatican Children Tour

    Dear Rachel,
    I planned to write you as soon as we returned from our December visit to Italy but even though it has been 6 weeks since our trip I want to thank you for the excellent service and phenomenal tours of Rome and the Vatican which we had the privilege of enjoying with Lucia on Dec.23 and 24th…she is an absolutely exceptional tour guide and we certainly appreciated having her great insight and knowledge enrich our understanding of the sites we visited. Nancy Aiello Tours will certainly be recommended by us and hopefully at some future time we will have the luxury of exploring Italy with you again.
    Thanks again!

    Dear Nancy Aiello Team,
    I learned about your tour company from my friend Lucinda Kang who used your guides in Rome. She was the person who suggested getting a private guide to get the most of our Italy for our family.  We signed up for 2 tours in Rome and 1 in Florence and had 3 different guides.  We thought all of the guides were very knowledgeable, comfortable with our children and answering questions.  We also liked the very thorough historical and cultural perspective.  Sometimes, our kids got a little bored, but it was easy to draw them back into the tour with interesting info.  We really lucked out with weather on all of our dates and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  Thank you!

  • Custom Rome Amalfi Coast Family Trip Package

    Rachel,
    I want to thank you for arranging tours that made our trip to Rome and the Amalfi Coast so incredibly memorable. Laura, our Rome guide, is just the best. She knew how interested we were in art history, and went over and above to make sure we saw everything. She is incredibly knowledgeable, and a lot of fun. We also used two drivers. Fabio, in Rome, worked so well with Laura. Then, in Amalfi, Luigi took us on the coastal drive. What a great way to experience this area; one we had not previously visited. We will look forward to using your tours on the next trip to Italy! We can’t thank you enough for putting our tours together.
