Naples, with its rich history, vibrant culture, and proximity to significant archaeological sites, serves as the perfect starting point for a journey to the ancient city of Pompeii. Buried by the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, Pompeii offers a unique glimpse into Roman life, frozen in time. Here’s a guide on how to reach Pompeii from Naples, ensuring you make the most of your historical adventure.

1. By Train

The most convenient way to reach Pompeii is by the Circumvesuviana train. Departing from Napoli Garibaldi station, these trains run frequently, with a travel time of approximately 30-40 minutes. You will need to get off at the “Pompei Scavi – Villa dei Misteri” station, which is a short walk from the main entrance of the archaeological site. Trains are a budget-friendly option, costing only a few euros each way, and they offer a direct and scenic route through the Vesuvian towns.

2. By Bus

Alternatively, you can take a bus from Naples. The main bus terminal near Piazza Garibaldi has regular services to Pompeii. Buses can be a bit slower due to traffic, but they provide a comfortable ride and a chance to see more of the surrounding countryside. The journey usually takes about an hour. Train and bus tickets are not included in Napoli Card, as this is a suburban area.

3. By Car

If you prefer more flexibility, renting a car or hiring a taxi is another option. The drive from Naples to Pompeii is relatively short, taking about 30 minutes via the A3 motorway. However, be prepared for potential traffic, especially during peak tourist season. You can take advantage of the taxi promocode included in our package.

Whether you take the train, bus, or car, reaching Pompeii from Naples is straightforward and convenient. This journey not only provides a chance to explore one of the most fascinating archaeological sites in the world but also offers an unforgettable glimpse into a day in the life of ancient Romans. So, pack your essentials, prepare for a historical adventure, and let the wonders of Pompeii captivate your imagination. To enhance your visit, consider hiring an audio guide or joining a guided tour at the entrance. These resources can provide detailed information about the site’s history and the significance of various structures.
