Wow. It was amazing. The bus service was efficient and the optional upgrade to a guided tour was breathtaking. Francesco was very informative, knowledgeable and very funny. It was a great tour and would highly recommend it for anyone who goes to Rome. In a word, unbelievable.
We had a fantastic time on this day trip from Rome to Pompeii. Taking the bus allowed us to see some of Italys beautiful country side and have all afternoon in Pompeii. We met at 7 am in Rome and departed at 7:30 am for Pompeii. Our guide Claudia started providing us with tons of history and fun facts the minute we boarded the bus. On the way we saw beautiful fields of blooming poppies, the Apennine Mountains, farms and even part of the Appian Way which starts outside of Rome. About half way we took a short break for using the restroom and having refreshments. This was just enough time. As we approached Pompeii we could see Mt. Vesuvius looming in the background and the coast to our right. When we arrived, Claudia guided us to our starting point and we met our English speaking Pompeii guide Barbara. Pompeii is a very large and busy area. Our guides always made it clear about when and where we needed to meet them.
Barbara guided us through the streets of Pompeii. She was extremely informative, witty, and kind. During the 2 hour guided portion of the tour we saw a bakery with the wood stove and grain grinder fully intact. It was amazing. The fire wood oven looked as new as one in a local restaurant.
In another area we saw mummified and plaster infused shapes. One shape was a woman covering her face at the moment of her death. We also saw a man, a dog, and a baby. There were statues and intact pottery vases. We saw multiple frescoes. We walked along the stone streets of Pompeii where the people, animals, and carts would have done the same 2000 years ago. The organization and planning of the city were amazingly sophisticated. There were crosswalks and water pipes leading to fountains, and baths, and houses. We saw mosaic entry ways.
It is a massive area and there is no way to see everything in an afternoon. We did have enough time to get a sense of the place and saw enough to understand the significance of its history.
When we finished the guided portion of the tour, Barbara was very helpful in guiding us to how we might spend the last hour seeing Pompeii.
On the bus ride back to Rome, Claudia spoke with each of us about our time so far in Italy and what we might do in the next couple of days. She offered suggestions on what sites we might enjoy in and around Rome. I was so impressed by her kindness and passion. Claudia could have simply relaxed and slept on the bus ride back to Rome, but she did not. She took a personal interest in each one of us and how to make our time in Italy even more enjoyable. Both of our guides were extremely charming, kind, and informative. They were the perfect guides to have on our adventure to Pompeii. Grazie mille!
A budget-friendly excursion from Rome to Pompeii. To get the best out of the experience, I would definitely recommend the optional English-language guided tour -- important to know what you're looking at and any additional information. A good day trip.
Claudia our guide on the bus was brilliant and had more interesting things to say than our location guide Vincent who was pretty basic unfortunately. After packing so much in to our travels it was so nice to hop on this bus to and from Pompeii without having to negotiate other methods of transport. Our 4 year old companion Alessio had a wonderful time too yes there was ice cream involved.
