Full description

Explore the world-famous Pompeii ruins and Mount Vesuvius on a guided day trip starting from Naples or Sorrento. Enjoy skip-the-line entry to Pompeii and admire the Bay of Naples from Vesuvius’ summit.

Start at Pompeii, where you can skip the ticket line before your guided walking tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

With your guide, inspect well-preserved ruins, artworks, mosaics, and frescoes, including the Roman Forum, and Temple of Apollo. Even glance at plaster casts of people in the city at the time of Vesuvius’ eruption in AD 79.

Exit the archeological site with your guide and visit the surrounding shops and cafes. Choose the lunch option for a three-course meal consisting of a starter, main course, dessert, and one drink.

Next up is Mount Vesuvius. Skip the majority of the arduous climb, with your vehicle taking you 1000m up the volcano. From there, step out and make your own way to the crater’s edge on a 30-minute ascent.

On the way, you may come across an official alpine guide who can share the volcano’s turbulent history with you. Arrive at the summit where you can enjoy and photograph the unforgettable views over the whole of the Bay of Naples. 

The day trip ends with a transfer back to Naples or Sorrento.

This was an incredible day trip! Absolutely worth every penny. So organized and amazing guides. Pompeii was fantastic and can’t wait to go back to see even more of it which apparently could take a few days . Polite funny and very informed guides. Our lunch on Mt. Vesuvio was delicious so homemade as well as a splash of two of wine was fun and a great time to get to know some people on our tour. Then climbing up to the volcano crater was such an experience and a bit of a workout but manageable . Such a perfect trip would highly recommend it! Thank you Robin and Andy

Our tour guide was fantastic! She gave us the perfect amount of information, kept it fun and entertaining, and was anything but monotone!!! The transportation was efficient and everything was very organized. PACK YOUR OWN LUNCH. I read the reviews about the bad food and figured since I wasn’t picky it wouldn’t be an issue, but the food really was absolutely terrible. I still gave the trip 5 stars because Desire (hopefully that’s how you spell it) was so lovely!!

This was a lovely tour! I enjoyed everything we saw and the hike to the top of Mount Vesuvius was amazing! I did this on my own from a cruise ship and getting back was a bit dicey. We were almost an hour late getting back due to traffic and crowds. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the lunch. It wasn't nearly as enjoyable as I had hoped. The service at the restaurant was horrible and was partially the cause of us being so late. If I could do this tour again, I would not add the meal but go find my own.
