Tour Overview
This unique day trip out of Sorrento includes skip-the-line access to both Pompeii and Vesuvius Volcano while being accompanied by a local and experienced guide to ensure that you maximize your time inside the ruins and on the mountain.

The UNESCO Site of the ruins of Pompeii are surrounded by a dark history dating back to 79 AD when Mount Vesuvius erupted, burying the thriving Roman City under 4-6 meters of ash (13-20 feet). Our guide will give you an insightful and unbelievable walking tour throughout the ruins, walking along the ancient “cardini” and “decumani” and exploring the remaining remnants of the prosperous Romans and explaining the incredible excavations that finally began in the 18th century. Because the city was buried under so much ash, the architecture, infrastructure, and daily life is unbelievably well preserved.

The second portion of the day will bring you up Mount Vesuvius to approximately 1,000 meters (3,280 feet) where you are free to climb to the crater's edge which sits at 1,280 meters (4,200 feet).

We will return to Sorrento and drop you off at the original departure point or your hotel.
