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.

Very good day out! Roberto (on the bus) and Salvatore (at Pompeii) were great. All ran smoothly. Loved Pompeii, Vesuvius is a steep climb and time is limited so if you have fitness issues (like me) you may not make it to the top. Be careful of being sucked into the set lunch at the restaurant as you come out of Pompeii if that's not what you want

Had an amazing day at Vesuvius and Pompeii - the tour guide was really friendly and efficient, and the talks really informative. The day was well organised, and I liked that the guide told us about the surrounding area on the bus journey as well as at the sights themselves. It's slightly more of an adult trip, my 10yr old was the only child, but he enjoyed it too.

Ornella was absolutely brilliant. She made the day very enjoyable and gave us lots of very interesting information. Without a doubt one of the best tours I have been on, thanks to her. Special shout out to Giovanni, our driver, as well. He was fantastic and we always felt safe.
