POMPEII EXPRESS FROM ROME BY RAIL

 Reaching Pompeii from Rome for an archaeological expedition through the most iconic ruins on earth has become somewhat of a Holy Grail, especially at a fair price, and we deliver!

 Tour Pompeii with an expert archaeologist, relaxed in the knowledge that your trains and transfers for the day are timed to perfection.

 Arrive in Naples from Rome by rail around mid-morning, then board the scheduled train that will take you to Pompeii. Your guide will meet you on a piazza beside the ruins from where your Pompeii group tour departs.

 The violent expulsion of volcanic gas, old lava rocks and pumice blocks destroyed much of Pompeii. What was left behind disappeared beneath a last wave of black ash that we now know was pyroclastic phenomena.

 Today, the site is rather expansive so we cover all the archaeological highlights then uncover numerous hidden gems that other tours ignore.

 Inside the ruined city, you will learn about the catastrophe that befell Pompeii. Did the destructive force last for a matter of minutes, hours, or days? Find out by exploring the actual places that bore witness to the famous eruption of Vesuvius.

 Understand how the citizens of Pompeii reacted to nature's early warning signs of impending doom, and what action, if any, they took to protect themselves.

 What we see today turns the pages of personal stories that tell of tragedy, sorrow, and death. Conversely, the minutiae in mosaics reveal lives that were lived to the fullest before being cut down.

 Post-tour, it's the same journey in reverse. Your return ticket on the express train back to Rome concludes Pompeii Express from Rome by Rail.

WHAT TO EXPECT

 Rated 5 / 5 by Mike L on March 28th, 2024  Pompeii direct from Rome was what we wanted and via the Express train and then a local train to Pompeii about 30 minutes after arriving in Naples from Rome - we got it. The walk from Pompeii station to the meeting point was 25 minutes so time for us to sit down for a rest and have an ice cream before Pompeii. And the tour was so good! All in all a fantastic day with a very great guide, Mariana, and we're very pleased we booked this one. There are many Pompeii tours from Rome - this is the best priced and best planned.

 Rated 4.7 / 5 by Joanna W on October 2nd, 2022  Good value for us, cheaper than every other website for the same service level. The express train from Termini to Naples was on time and not overly busy, and then the second local train from Naples to Pompeii just a very pleasant ride to the area of the ruins. Our guide Anna is a working archaeologist and the tour she gave was outstanding. All in all a good experience that we can recommend.
