TICKETS FOR VISITING THE RUINS OF POMPEII AND THE AREA AROUND NAPLES

Recent review:

Assorted tickets & tours, May 2015

Easy. I was so grateful we bought tickets ahead of time and avoided all the lines (in the hot sun).

We walked right in to all venues (some of which, like the Borghese Gallery, were sold out for days) with no problem.

Thank you!

Clearly the main attraction here are the ruins of Pompeii and the Naples 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.

If you are 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: 9 AM to 6.00 PM.
1st November - 31st March: 9 AM to 3.30 PM.

* 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 in Naples (the most convenient for you is likely to be the one in the central rail station) as well as at the excavations at Ercolani (Herculaneum). Please note that until further notice there is no pickup option in Pompeii due to ongoing works.

Pompeii 1 day ticket

Spend a day exploring the wonders of Pompeii, one of the world's most remarkable and popular archaeological attractions, which offers a unique insight into the day to day life of ancient Rome.

With 44 hectares of excavations [see map (pdf)], there is plenty to explore in Pompeii, famously frozen in time by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. This one day ticket, available throughout the year, allows you to explore the ruins, villas, streets and monuments of the city in your own time.

Please note that unlike the Pompeii Card, this ticket does not allow access to public transport or other sites of interest.
