Vatican and St Peters private tour, Monday 17th March 2014

I would like to give you feedback on the above which our party of 8 enjoyed immensely.

Everything was perfect, meeting, entry (lovely to pass those queues), technology, venue (of course), etc.

But the best thing about the whole morning was your guide Deborah. She is charming, friendly, erudite, and a real credit to you. We listened to her intently throughout, she held our attention, surprised us, interacted with us, answered all our questions, and made the morning very special. We would have missed so much without her. We all think we would like to meet her again and when we come back to Rome we would hope to do so.

Many thanks

If you're looking to visit the ruins of Pompeii, this is the ticket for you.

Pompeii card
4.6 out of 5 based on 25 ratings.
19 user reviews

Clearly the main attraction here are the ruins of Pompeii and the Vesuvius area, but this cumulative pass gives you three days access to a whole range of sites (two sites included, successive visits are discounted), the excavations at Pompeii included, plus transport from Naples and transport between the sites.

To put that another way, transport is included at no cost, as is entry to two sites from the long list further down the page, and this includes Pompeii, but any visits you make after having visited two sites will incur a charge, albeit it at a reduction of up to 50%.

The card allows use of all public transport systems run by companies that belong to the UNICOCAMPANIA Consortium: AIR, AMTS, ANM, CLP, CSTP,CTI/ATI, CTP, EAV (ex Circumvesuviana SEPSA METROCAMPANIA NORDEST EAVBUS), METRONAPOLI, SITA SUD, and TRENITALIA.

The pricing policy of the relevant authorities here is very different to that of those elsewhere in Italy. For this card, if you are not a European citizen then there are no reductions or concessions, no matter what age you are.
If you are a EU citizen aged under 18 then entrance is free and you do not need a pass - just show some proof of ID at each place. The same applies for disabled people.

If you are a EU citizen aged between 18 and 25 then the card is offered at a slightly reduced price.

No need to queue up and get tickets, just use your card at the dedicated entrance for cardholders.

Opening times are as follows:
1st April - 31st October: 8.30 AM to 6.00 PM.
1st November - 31st March: 8.30 AM to 3.30 PM.

Please begin the booking procedure by selecting the your date preference using the calendar below. Tell us roughly which date you're likely to begin using your card, but don't worry too much about this - remember that your card will only become active* the first time that you use it, leaving the choice of when to explore the area entirely up to you.
Do remember that dates are in European (day-month-year) format.

Simply select the ideal date for your visit by clicking on the calendar to the left*.

Once you've selected a date on the calendar we'll show you the ticket options that are available, one or more of which may be of interest to you.


* The card is valid for 72 hours from the time you first use it, at least as far as museums and sites are concerned. The slight oddity is that the free transport included is not valid for 72 hours, rather it is valid for the day of activation and the two days following that.

To reserve your Pompeii card, just fill out the booking form, supply us with credit card details, and we'll do the rest. There will be no charge whatsoever until we confirm your reservation. We'll then point you to our secure page, where you can print out your voucher. Print it out, bring it with you to Italy and exchange it for your card on arrival. There are various pickup points for the card, both at Pompeii, in Naples (the most convenient for you is likely to be the one in the central rail station) and various other places in the area.
