Full description
Explore the world-famous Pompeii ruins and Mount Vesuvius summit on a day trip starting from Naples or Sorrento. Choose to visit with a shared group or on a private tour.  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 or grab some lunch. 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.

The guide through Pompeii was informative and helpful. Quickly able to answer questions and able to explain in such terms to help us understand the events that would and would not be understandable during that period as well as the painstaking time and effort’s to have the unearthing of this ancient city come to the results we see today. Was absolutely fascinating

Everything was smooth and friendly. But also very safe and profesionalni. Federica was the guide. So good english speaker so far. Helped with extra questions about everything. Also about Napoli for other days. Stick with her. Guides and drivers are the spine of tour agency. Driver was carefull through narrow and often dangerous streets. Experienced.

A whole lot of energy must be required to give this tour in Italian and English and yet our wondefull guide whose name I will definitely mispronounce/misspell (so I won't and I apologise profusely as you told us so many times) did so effortlessly and kept it fun & interesting also. Thank you "young mother" and to our bus driver Luigi for keeping us safe. Great tour,great value for money too. Would definitely recommend.
