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.

it was a great experience to learn about the history of Pompei and Mt. Vesuvius. Our guide was brilliant! super friendly, passionate, and knowledgeable on the subject matter! would definitely recommend this guided tour, especially if you are short on time and need an organized way to explore Pompeii and Vesuvius.

Our guide, Elena, was fabulous! Her enthusiasm and passion for Pompeii were exhibited throughout the day by her extensive knowledge, storytelling ability, and humor. She was truly a delight! She answered all of my questions and I observed her responding to many other questions from guests. I can’t imagine touring Pompeii without a knowledgeable guide, as there is no signage to explain what one is viewing and Pompeii is one interesting place! The views from Mt Vesuvius were spectacular! We were given just the right amount of time to climb it, linger and return. We did not feel rushed at Pompeii or Mt Vesuvius. I would highly recommend this tour!

Excellent price for very good value! Felt very welcome. Very good timing for both parts of the visit - 2 1/2 hrs at Pompeji, 2 hrs walking round Vesuvius. Our guides were friendly and relaxed, the tasting at Maurizo Russo´s on the way up to Mt. Vesuv was also well organized and inobtrusive. Definitely a trip to recommend.
