Full description
Travel back in time to the devastating day in 79 AD the brooding volcano of Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried the Roman city of Pompeii beneath molten ash.  On arrival, your expert guide will take you on a 2-hour tour through the remains of this UNESCO world heritage site remarkably frozen in time for almost 2,000 years. One of the most popular destinations in the world, you will hear stories about The Forum, Thermal Baths, Lupanare, Greek Theater and plaster casts of the bodies of Pompeii people. Following a typical Naples lunch of pizza at one of Pompeii’s cafés, you will then be driven close to the summit of the mountain that destroyed it. From there, it's just a walk to the lip of the crater. The only active volcano in continental Europe, Vesuvius has erupted many times, but it was the destruction of Pompeii and its surrounding towns that made it most famous. Climb to the top, and walk around the crater, taking in the atmosphere of the smoking mountain. Enjoy the stunning views over the Bay of Naples. You will return to Sorrento at approximately 5:15 PM, where you will be dropped off at your hotel, the cruise ship, or the railway station.

Great experience to see two iconic areas of interest in one day with great lunch thrown in. Good to have a taster of both Pompeii, our guide was amazing and made the visit quite immersive, very knowledgeable with funny points of information, and Vesuvius, but... Would love to go back to Pompeii again as 2 hours was not long enough to see hardly a 5th of the city. Please note comfortable shoes a must and be prepared for a steep walk to the crater of the volcano, you'll not regret going up (once you've caught your breath!!) Views of both the crater and the surrounding countryside are amazing. Lunch was a simple and very tasty pizza, maybe the best you've tasted!

Well organized tour to two 'monuments' that you must see when staying in the area. Contact with local partner regarding appointments was very good. All participants will be picked up and dropped off at their stay. The visits to the sites are well planned and several hosts make sure that everything runs smoothly, even in the van. We had a very good guide who animatedly and enthusiastically told the drama of Pompei. The time for the visit to Vesuvius was not very long because we lost time in the morning due to traffic jams, but it remained an impressive experience.

Wonderful tour for the family. My wife and I along with our four children were picked up in a shuttle at our hotel and all transport throughout the day was super easy. The guides were some of the kindest people we’ve ever met and pointed out some great info along the way that was really interesting. Definitely don’t forget to bring plenty of water! The tour is great, but the day is long and water is essential. The lunch between the tours was great and more than we could eat. The sites were everything we wanted to see, but what really made the day enjoyable was the genuine kindness and generosity of our guides.
