With the launch City Sightseeing Italy's Pomepii and Naples shuttle bus on January 1st, 2017, those travelling to the city of Rome now have a convenient link to Campania's famous archaeological site.

Each element of the day tour is operated by City Sightseeing Italy and its partner organisations. Departures run all year round, 4 days a week, with prospective travellers able to book online at least 3 days in advance of their desired date.

The tour's days of operation are Mondays, Thursdays, Friday's and Saturdays. Travellers who book online need only print out their email confirmation voucher, head to the main departure point Largo di Villa Peretti (adjacent Stazione Termini), and begin their journey. Safety requirements such as the issuing of contact phone numbers and special dietary considerations are dealt with at the Rome departure point before the shuttle bus sets out. Travellers are requested to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the 07:15 departure time.

City Sightseeing Italy has its own reserved pick up and drop off area in front of Pompeii excavation site, ensuring participants a quick and smooth transition from the tour coaches to the streets of Pompeii. They are grouped based on language (indicated on all passes) and assigned a professional guide who stays with them for the next 2 hours.

After lunch travellers are shuttled to the main City Sightseeing Naples meeting point outside Castel Nuovo. Here they're escorted aboard an awaiting open-top, double-decker bus.

We're very happy to be working with them to help sell and promote this one-of-a-kind adventure to Italy's most famous archaeological park. The destruction of Pomepii is a fascinating story known throughout the world, and now travellers to Rome can experience it in full comfort and convenience".
