Full description
Start your tour from Sorrento with transfer by semiprivate minibus to Pompeii. Upon your arrival, enjoy a 2-hour visit to the Pompeii excavation site together with your official guide. Due to its burial under a layer of ashes and lapilli, the town was forgotten for hundreds of years until its excavations in the 18th-century.

After this visit, have free time for lunch. In the early afternoon, the visit will continue to Mount Vesuvius. The bus ride will take you 1000 meters high. From this point, continue with a 30 minutes walk. Once on the rim, meet an Alpine guide that will give you information about the history of the crater.

Have some more free time to enjoy the breathtaking view from the top of Vesuvius. Return to Sorrento in the afternoon.
