Full description

Travel back in time to the devastating day in 79 AD the brooding volcano of Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried the Roman city of Pompeii beneath molten ash.  On arrival, your expert guide will take you on a tour through the remains of this UNESCO world heritage site remarkably frozen in time for almost 2,000 years. Hear stories about The Forum, Thermal Baths, Lupanare, Greek Theater, and plaster casts of the bodies of Pompeii people. Following a typical Naples lunch of pizza at one of Pompeii’s cafés, you will then be driven close to the summit of the mountain that destroyed it. From there, it's just a walk to the lip of the crater. The only active volcano in continental Europe, Vesuvius has erupted many times, but it was the destruction of Pompeii and its surrounding towns that made it most famous.

Climb to the top, and walk around the crater, taking in the atmosphere of the smoking mountain. Enjoy the stunning views over the Bay of Naples. Return to Sorrento, where you will be dropped off at your hotel, the cruise ship, or the railway station.

The best compliment I can give is that this tour took me to being a child again!! Meaning I did not have to worry or think about anything, as everything was done for us. It was brilliant to be just ushered through at a steady pace through both activities Food was also surprisingly good but I would recommend one order pizza, one lasagna one salad and share. Our tour guide Maria was brilliant. Fought her corner in Pompeii to ensure we had a great experience and she was really funny!

Perfect from start to finish. Picked up on time the guide was informative on way to Vesuvius ,which was amazing but very steep walking. We had an hour there then off to Pompeii, we had lunch first which was pizza and it was delicious and the tour guide introduced herself. Pompeii was great and we learned a lot about the eruption and the city itself. Returned back to hotel on time.would definitely use this company again.

Maria our guide at Pompeii was amazing! Pickup and drop off at the hotel was also seamless. However, beware of the amount Vesuvius part. You do get dropped off about halfway up to the mountain but it is more than “just a walk” as advertised. It is a STEEP 30-45 minute hike. And at 95°F it was absolutely unbearable. We ended up just staying at one of the picnic tables at the base for the hour and a half but we wished we would have just booked the half day tour to just see the ancient city.
