Full description

Enjoy a tour of contrasts on a combined 8-hour day trip from Naples to Pompeii and Capri. Stroll around the ruins of a former city of the Roman Empire, and then join the jet set on a glittering jewel of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Following a pick-up from your hotel in Naples (main hotels only), or from the Cruise Terminal or Napoli Centrale train station, drive to Pompeii, approximately 25 minutes along the highway.

Upon arrival, an archaeologist guide will lead you around the site after your skip-the-line entrance. See the most significant buildings to build a picture of life in the Roman Republic, such as theaters, the Forum, Stabian Baths, House of the Faun, and House of the Tragic Poet. Return to Naples and climb aboard a hydrofoil for a 45-minute sea crossing to the island of Capri. Here, your guide will take you to the funicular that leads uphill through lemon groves from Marina Grande to the Piazzetta. Enjoy some free time to shop, and stop for a coffee at the Gran Caffè Vuotto. Wander the narrow streets to find boutique fashion stores and local craft shops. Enjoy panoramic views from the belvedere of the Gardens of Augustus. Look across at sights such as Via Krupp, Mount Solaro, the Bay of Marina Piccola, and the Faraglioni sea stacks of Capri. Return to the funicular to board the hydrofoil back to the port of Naples. From the port, cruise passengers can walk back to their cruise ship, while hotel guests will be transferred by minivan to their hotels.

Our guide was Terry and she was very nice! We had a different guide for Pompei which was wonderful and very cool to see. Then we went to the port in Naples to take a boat to Capri and we saw the Garden and had some free time to explore. We also did the additional boat tour around the island which was beautiful! I definitely recommend doing this if you can. It cost €20 extra but it was worth it! The view of the Capri from the Garden was amazing and I got some perfect pictures! I had a wonderful and would recommend!

This was a well-organized tour that allowed us to visit 2 priority locations in our short Cruise port day in Naples. Teresa was our wonderful tour guide, she was very personable and knowledgeable about the island of Capri. Alexander was our archaeological guide through Pompeii, and he was very passionate about the history of Pompeii. We first took the hydrofoil out to the island of Capri, then the funicular to the Piazzetta/funicular back down to the hydrofoil back to Naples, and a bus to Pompeii and back. Since we just had one day, the time in both locations was a little shorter, but now we know we will be returning to spend a few days in the future! The cruise port wasn't an option when we booked, so we chose a hotel just a few minutes away. This created a stressful situation when our driver called us 30min before our pickup time to say we were late, and the GPS didn't take us to the hotel and the cell service was bad in Naples. They did work to locate and pick us up in time.

We had a fantastic trip from Naples to Pompeii and Capri. Our tour guide Tiziana was very knowledgeable and we had a great time. For the tour in Pompeii our guide was Alex, who was also a great tour guide with lots of jokes. For the afternoon in Capri we profited from being a small group of 4. Everything was well organized. We can highly recommend this tour.
