 We were the first tour operator in Rome to combine a guided tour in one venue with a first entrance ticket to another venue. It was in the year 2012 when we made the decision to deliver a "2 in 1" guided tour / ticket combo of the Vatican Museums and Colosseum. It became our top-selling activity.

 Since then, the entire Rome travel and tourism sector has followed us. Activities that combine a Rome tour with a venue ticket have become rather common.

 Of course we try to give travellers as many options as possible in Pompeii and Herculaneum from Rome. We offer different types of train tickets, tours at different times of day, and tours of both sites for the definitive full day experience.

  Touring Pompeii and Herculaneum can get tiring, especially when sandwiched between train journeys from and back to Rome. We discovered that a subset of travellers would likely appreciate being guide-led part of the way, then going self-guided the rest of the way.

 Pompeii & Herculaneum Switch Combo gives you control over your day. Our tour / ticket combination means one less meeting point deadline, ergo less to worry about and more sightseeing time in the ruins.

 The express train from Rome (Roma Termini) will get you to Naples (Napoli Centrale) in c. two hours.

 NCC (licensed) taxis will move you part of the way between Naples, Pompeii and Herculaneum:

 Naples to Herculaneum (private taxi) c. €60
 Herculaneum to Naples (by suburban train) c. €4
 Naples to Pompeii (private taxi) c. €90
 Pompeii to Naples (by suburban train) c. €4

 You can book these two private taxis online in advance from our transfers partner My Transfers in Naples. When you have booked this activity, we will contact you to advise about required taxi schedules in order to arrive at each tour meeting point on time.

 Whichever site you wish to tour, the experience will be guided by an archaeologist. Whichever site you decide to experience self-guided, you will have plenty of time therein to catch everything!




 Rated 5 / 5 by Ben S on March 25th, 2024  Wonderful day with wife and kids, got to see both sites and one with an archaeologist. We loved the Italian trains & taxis weren't expensive and guaranteed us lots of sightseeing time.

 Rated 5 / 5 by Jason C on March 4th, 2021  Loved the option to book either the Pompeii tour with ticket to Herculaneum or Herculaneum tour with ticket to see Pompeii. The trains between Rome - Naples and back were ok, Intercity express and in general the timings worked well for us. Our tour guide in Herculaneum / Ercolano, Maria Antonelli, has been working there on archaeological digs for 12 years, a true expert and we were all very impressed. In Pompeii we had 3.5 hours and we saw everything. Taxi costs spread between the 3 of us were very affordable and made the day really pleasant - thank you to Pete at Eternal Tours Rome for perfect planning!
