What to expect

This Pompeii and Vesuvius tour is the best option for travelers who plan to visit these famous UNESCO World Heritage Sites from Sorrento. This tour includes all the entrance fees to Pompeii and Vesuvius, as well as a skip the line access and carefully selected local expert guides. Don't forget there's also a delicious Neapolitan pizza lunch!

You will be driven directly from Sorrento by private, air conditioned bus to Pompeii, where you’ll meet your official, licensed Pompeii tour guide. Traveling in groups of maximum 25 people, you’ll explore examples of every building in Pompeii – from homes to bath houses, fast food stores to outdoor theaters.

Follow your expert local guide as they recreate the hustle and bustle of this once-busy port town, explaining what each building was used for, where families ate their meals, did laundry and socialized – and where sailors went when they docked. They’ll recreate for you the final days of Pompeii as you examine the harrowing death casts scattered around these ruins at the foot of Mt. Vesuvius. Your entertaining and knowledgeable guide will ensure that your Pompeii visit is as enjoyable as it is memorable.

Afterwards, your group will drive a short way to perhaps the most dangerous volcano in the world – a title held for the 3 million people living around its base today. Just over a half-mile hike up Mt. Vesuvius from the parking lot below, the crater offers the most stunning view of the Bay of Naples below and a taste of the utter devastation it must have caused when it exploded in 79 AD, literally wiping Pompeii off the map for 1,500 years.
