A Day in Pompeii and Capri
Travel to Capri and Pompeii on this Naples Tour
Begin your Naples port tour with a comfortable, air-conditioned 25-minute drive from port to Pompeii. Along the road, your professional tour guide will introduce you to the beautiful region and provides interesting facts. They will also collect the entrance fee for the Pompeii ruins.
Once in Pompeii, follow your friendly guide through the ticket office, skip the line, and begin your adventure! It's going to feel like you traveled back in time with your own personal time machine. With your knowledgeable guide, you will visit historic buildings, such as the theater, Forum, Stabian baths, house of the Faun, house of the Tragic Poet, and many other notable buildings. Plenty of photograph opportunities are available, so make sure to have room on your camera!
After Pompeii, drive back to Naples and board a hydrofoil for a 45 minute scenic ride to gorgeous Capri Island. Venture on a funicular to reach the world-famous "Piazetta," nicknamed "the little theater of the world." Enjoy free time to explore the lovely city and its captivating highlights. You can stop at the famous "Gran Caffe Vuotto" for a coffee break, stroll along narrow shopping streets full of famous Italian brands, and visit the Gardens of Augustus for a 180-degree panoramic view of the island. There is plenty for you to see and do in this breathtaking city. Have fun!
After your free time, meet your guide outside the funicular to head back to port. Book this incredible Naples shore excursion for a memorable trip back in time in beautiful Italy.

Our tour guide, Rosela, was incredible! She told us so many interesting things about Capri and Pompeii. We did Capri first so the weather was nicer - she was fun to talk to, and had lots of fun acecdotes about the island. She arranged a boat tour for those of us who wanted during free time on Capri, and even got us a to-go lunch since we wouldn't have time to sit down & eat (incredible Caprese sandwiches!). She was thoughtful and fun - we thoroughly enjoyed the day. Pompeii was incredible...she taught us lots about the ruins and people who lived there. We could have easily spent a whole day in both places, but it was terrific to have the opportunity to see both!

Mafalda was our tour guide and she simply went "above & beyond!" Capri was absolutely gorgeous on a clear, sunny day. She gave us a great walking tour, and gave us some free time as well (over 90 minutes). This gave us time to take boat tour around the island (1 hour) -- which Mafalda arranged for us (the only couple who decided to do this, I might add --- well worth it!!). Then on to Pompeii and all of its history. There too, Mafalda arranged for an archaeological historian expert to guide us through the ruins -- an absolutely invaluable "add" to the experience. All in all, a tour WELL worth it (and ask for Mafalda!)
Mafalda was fantastic as our tour guide to Capri! So enthusiastic and fun and knew so many interesting facts about Capri. We had plenty of options for what to do during our free time. After our boat ride back to Naples, we boarded a bus to Pompeii where Mafalda introduced us to Enza who was our escort through the ruins. We were blown away by the immense size and easily could have spent a couple of days exploring Pompeii. We are so glad we booked this excursion.

I was very satisfied with the shore tour but should have been advised of extra fees.
Thank goodness our guide switched to going to Capri first then Pompeii. I believe we were able to enjoy Capri much more since that's were we started. Pompeii was awesome to see and learn about but it was exhausting with the heat and so much walking -so be prepared for that and wear good shoes. Capri is breath taking -must go back and visit and spend more than two hours. Would of preferred that to go inside Pompeii that it was included in the price. That was a little cheesey at giving money to our tour guide for entrance considering how much we paid to begin with. The cost was $26 euros for two.
