A few of us went to Pompeii by using a City Sightseeing Bus (HOHO) designated just for Pompeii. The specially designated bus met us at their center drop off point, which was an easy walk from the ship. We had purchased our vouchers before we left the states, and it was a great, quick way to get to Pompeii. The cost was $15.00 pp round trip. The drop off point in Pompeii was at the entrance near the tourism office and you purchase the single ticket entry to Pompeii. We used Rick Steves audio guides supplemented by his written walking tour instructions. Easy peasy! The map given at the entry site is a bit too complicated. The Pompeii site is, of course, wonderful to see, especially with the free Rick Steve guides. The ride back was equally easy, and we walked around the commercial center for a while. Read Less

So much to see here. Need days to see this site. Artifacts bubbling out of this historic city as seen on TV back in the states. History in the making!

Note: You can walk off the ship and into Naples. Many sites close to the ship. Tour: Memories of Naples & Pompeii When they rated this stenuous, they weren't kidding.We are not old, (mid 50's) but were beat at the end. Would have done this as 2 separate tours in the future. Walking tour of Naples including the aqueducts below the city (facinating) and a pizza lunch in a nice cafe. Off to Pompeii Pompeii is like no where else in the world. Definitely a must do tour. The remains give you a snapshot of history of that time. Be aware that mobility issues are real here, as you are walking on boulders, not cobblestones. Lots of up and down and elevation changes.

Tour was primarily just transportation with a guide on the bus and to take us to a "cameo factory" which we skipped. Pompeii very crowded and it was a warm day but enjoyed seeing it again after twenty years since last visit.
