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 enjoy some free time to wander around Pompeii town. Choose the lunch option for a two-course meal consisting of a main course, a dessert, and one drink followed by a round of Limoncello tasting Next up is Mount Vesuvius. Skip the majority of the arduous climb, with your vehicle taking you 1000m up the volcano.  From there, enjoy a 30-minute walk to the crater’s edge, where you’ll have some free time to explore. Take the opportunity to savor and photograph unforgettable views over the whole of the Bay of Naples from here. Look out for the official alpine guides at the summit who can share the volcano’s turbulent history with you.  The day trip ends with a transfer back to Naples or Sorrento.

Rosa was reaaalt lovely and the guide through Pompeii was amazing! Great lunch too! I got 4 different dishes, bottle of water, soft drink and a shot of limoncello. It’s guitar a good quantity of good haha. The only thing that I felt it could be improved was the guide in Vesuvius which I felt a lack of history and infos about the volcano itself. Apart from that, all just perfect!

Overall well organised. Guide had knowledge was very helpful with questions we had, very polite and she took a good care of us making sure that we were ok the whole tour.One minor point was that her english was not that good and sometimes we could not understand what she was saying. But overall satisfied with tour and the guide

Vincento is a true tour guide gem. He is knowledgeable, experienced and is a creative “orateur”. He genuinely cares about his clients, ensures that everyone is comfortable and satisfied with his explanations and keeps the group tightly together while touring. He understands what the neophyte historian tourist expects and patiently explains always with a touch of humor. He is what the French call a “pince sans rire”. Thank you Vincento!
