Tickets for ruins of Pompeii and area

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

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.

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.

Included with your tickets is an e-book guide to Pompeii and the surrounding area, written by two prominent Italian Art Historians and available to download as epub (for iPad and iPhone, Android, and many ebook readers), mobi (for Kindle) and PDF for pretty much everything else.

Please note that unlike the Pompeii Card, this ticket does not allow access to public transport or other sites of interest. For some background information on the ruins at Pompeii, click here.

Opening times are as follows:
1st April - 31st October: 9 AM to 7.30 PM.
1st November - 31st March: 9 AM to 5.00 PM.

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%.

*** Please note that this card must be collected from the Central Station in Naples.

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.

Included with your tickets is an e-book guide to Pompeii and the surrounding area, written by two prominent Italian Art Historians and available to download as epub (for iPad and iPhone, Android, and many ebook readers), mobi (for Kindle) and PDF for pretty much everything else.

The list below covers most of the main attractions (with links through to some more detailed information), but, in total, the card covers more than 80 sites! A more or less complete list of other sites included can be seen further down the page.

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. The card must be picked up at the central rail station in Naples.
For left-luggage, there are two facilities - in the lower level of the railway station and then at the Pompeii museum complex; pass the gates, head to the right of the ticket booths and down the ramp - to the right of the turnstiles is a small office for bag storage.

Our guide was very informative and polite. Anna was ready for us at the time given to us in the e-mail and tended to our needs throughout the tour. It's well worth hiring a guide as you are told about things you might not otherwise see or understand.

Most interesting and enjoyable visit to Pompei, Herculaneum and the National Archaeological Museum in Naples. Free train and metro travel was an added bonus, as I also went to Sorrento.

Had a great time visiting a place we have only experienced in history books. Thoroughly enjoyed it!
