Private Tour: Pompeii Rail Tour from Naples with Family Tour Option

5 h
About this activity
Start your day with a pickup from Naples cruise terminal, or meet your guide at the train station. Then, hop aboard the Circumvesuviana train (own expense) with your private guide, and relax. 
As you travel, listen to your guide’s introduction to Pompeii and learn the town was buried beneath a sea of ashes and pumice stone after one of Mt Vesuvius’ devastating eruptions. One of the benefits of having a private guide is that the commentary can be tailored to your interests. So, if you have any burning questions, feel free to ask your guide throughout your tour.
After a roughly 30-minute journey, leave the train and walk to the Pompeii site entrance (own expense). Head inside with your guide and enjoy a walking tour of the highlights.
As you stroll, listen avidly as your guide describes the rituals of daily life here and how 20,000 of Pompeii’s citizens perished in the eruption. As this is a private tour, talk to your guide about seeing more or less of any sites, so they can tailor the itinerary to your particular interests.
Walk down the well-preserved streets, past houses and shops, and see the stepping-stone blocks that enabled residents to cross over floods and sewage. Explore the center, known as the Forum, with its casts of victims, and view must-sees such as the Temple of Apollo, the market, and the public weighing scales.
Stop to see bakeries and a ‘fast-food’ shop, where clay jars were used to serve ready-to-eat food, and visit the brothel, baths and one of Pompeii’s outdoor or indoor theaters.
Having explored the main sights, choose to end your tour here so you can continue to explore independently, or head back to the station with your guide. Then, relax on the return train to Naples (own expense), where your tour concludes at the original start point.
Family Tour Option:
Pompeii isn’t just for adults, it’s also a great introduction to history for youngsters. So if you have the kids in tow, why not choose the family tour option? With this tour, you’ll meet a private guide at the entrance and see Pompeii’s highlights following an itinerary and route chosen by the kids.
Let them act as guide, exploring and learning about the city using a fun map, clues, puzzles and games designed to bring Pompeii’s residents and streets back to colorful life. It’s a truly engaging way for them to discover the city and learn about life here long ago.
After two hours, the family tour ends at the starting point when you bid farewell to your guide.
