Accessible Pompeii & Herculaneum with Naples Driving Tour

This Naples accessible driving tour combines the two buried city sites with a driving tour of the bustling city of Naples.

Sights viewed on the Naples accessible driving tour will include Piazza Garibaldi, the Royal Palace, Piazza Carlo III, Castle Nuovo, and more. The tour guide can meet you at the cruise dock or in your hotel lobby.

If you’d like to visit the Archaeology Museum instead of the city of Naples, you should choose the Accessible Cruise Excursion to Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Archaeological Museum.  The Accessible Pompeii & Herculaneum with Naples Walking Tour visits Naples by walking/rolling instead of driving.

Most tourists enter Pompeii using the uphill entrance covered in enormous cobblestones (shown in the photo on the left). Your Naples accessible driving tour will use an accessible Pompeii entrance instead (shown in the photo on the right).


In order to meet the accessibility needs of all visitors, the Accessible Pompeii & Herculaneum with Naples Driving Tour uses a variety of wheelchair ramps (shown on the left) and pavement (shown on the right) to take the most accessible path possible.


You will avoid the extremely non-wheelchair friendly paths that most tours take which involve stairs (shown in the photo on the left) and non-continuous sidewalks (shown in the photo on the right).


The accessible Herculaneum tour begins with an overview of the site while looking down from the accessible sidewalk surrounding Herculaneum (view from the sidewalk shown in photo on the left). Your tour will include visits to several of the buildings with step-free entrances (shown in the photo on the right).


The accessible tour of Herculaneum uses a series of wheelchair ramps and paved paths to enter the ruins and travel between the different buildings.


Your accessible driving tour of Naples will include a visit to the famous Galleria Umberto and will avoid the steps shown in the photo on the left. You will also visit the San Carlo Opera House built in 1937 next to the Royal Palace.


The accessible Naples driving tour will bring you to the Castel Nuovo (shown in the photo on the left) and the Castel dell’Ovo (shown in the photo on the right).


The Piazza del Plescibito (shown in the photo on the left) is one of the most popular sights in Naples and will be visited on this accessible Naples driving tour. All portions of the tour that include walking/rolling will use curb cuts such as those shown in the photo on the right.
