Esprema uma viagem a Pompéia para suas férias em Roma e descubra suas escavações arqueológicas mundialmente famosas em uma viagem de meio dia. Depois de sair da capital através de um trem rápido para Nápoles, pule em um ônibus para Pompeia. Uma vez lá, passe duas horas no local listado pela UNESCO e aprenda sobre a erupção vulcânica que enterrou - e preservou - Pompéia por séculos. Antes de seu retorno a Roma, desfrute de um privilégio extra: uma visita a um 'domus' romano onde, normalmente, moram os residentes mais ricos da cidade.
A long but enjoyable day. Met others at train station for 1 hour ride to Naples and short bus ride to Pompeii. Amp split to 20 or so for Pompeii guided tour which was thorough and kept interesting. More walking than expected and a little disorganized at end.
You wouldn't think that this would be a worthwhile length of time for a tour to Pompeii. But it is. You meet your guide outside the Rome Termini station and the trip is explained and you are guided onto the train. The very high speed train, which only takes 70 minutes to take you to Naples, where you are met by another guide and taken to a bus to Pompeii, then introduced to an onsite guide who takes you round Pompeii for two hours. Then you get time to eat and buy souvenirs and then you are taken back to the bus and back to Naples where you are put on the train back to Rome. Unless you are a student particularly studying Pompeii in which case you would be staying there this is a fine tour. Take water and sunscreen and a hat.
The instructions on where to meet were a bit confusing for us and our Uber Driver did not drop us off at the proper meeting place. After several phone calls, we finally met the group....but it was extremely stressful. Other than that, the tour was great. The train ride and bus ride were so worth it getting from Rome to Pompeii. And the tour was perfect. I wish we could have spent more time there but I believe we saw the highlights. It was summer time so the crowds were crazy. And it was extremely hot. If you go in August, I suggest you bring a hat and lots of water. At the end of the tour, we were given free time. My family enjoyed lunch at the restaurant at the enterance. Perfect amount of time.
Really enjoyed this tour. The train ride was smooth and comfortable. The Pompeii tour was outstanding. The tour guide had us all wear headsets so we could all hear him perfectly. He was very knowledgeable and really made Pompeii come alive. We returned to Rome in time to get on the hop on hop off bus right at the train station and tour around the city.
In spite of the heat, perhaps one of the best days we had in Italy. Having no preconceived notions, we found the experience fascinating. There was so much to learn and the material was presented in such a way that everyone in the small group was interested.
Pompeii was a city rich in history. I loved seeing it and being amongst the ruins. I did feel that this tour was overpriced for the experience provided by the tour itself. It was my least favorite of all the tours I took because I felt rushed to the point where you could not take pictures and the flow of information felt disconnected. I would still go to Pompeii however I would do it by myself and take the train. It would have saved me a lot of money and I would have been able to at least feel like i could enjoy the city. There are self guided tours available. I was disappointed. I went July 2016. I was with three people and we all felt the same. Lesson learned.
