From here you will depart by boat to the port of Castellammare di Stabia where the fun begins.  From your docking point at Castellammare di Stabia you will take a scenic transfer via bus to Pompeii and enjoy a 2.5-hour visit. Take a walk through the living ruins of this ancient city with your experienced, authorized guide who will teach you everything you need to know about this famous place.  Once the visit of Pompeii is over, relax for a while and have lunch in a traditional vineyard. Then, depart from Pompeii to visit Mount Vesuvius, once the site of a live volcano, and learn about this natural wonder with the assistance of a professional guide.

    for the most part, this was a well executed tour. the car/bus for the transfers were very comfortable and driver made us feel safe. our guide in pompeii was lovely and knowledgeable and really wanted to make everyone happy. i had low expectations for the lunch at the vineyard and didn’t know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. delicious food and wine in a beautiful setting. we left very happy. the timing of the boat meeting us in the marina after the tour of vesuvius was a little off but they made up for it and ended the excursion in the most lovely way, taking us for a sunset swim. dario, our host on the boat tried really hard to make everyone happy and went above and beyond to do so. a beautiful ending to our time in amalfi.

    Really well organized - starting with the pick-up in the morning and returning in the evening. Great boat trip, all the staff went out of their way to make an effort, and the excursion to Vesuvius and the tour in Pompeii with Giusi (Josefine) were extremely entertaining! Was really a top event!

    Expérience unique. Départ de sorrento en bateau semi privatif pour arriver à castellamare pour rejoindre le bus . Visite de Pompéi avec guide et chauffeur très sympathique et professionnel. Nous avons pu bien comprendre l’essort de la cité . puis un des meilleurs moments la journée, , la dégustation de vin dans un vignoble au pied du Vésuve avec petit repas . De à quoi bien continuer l’ascension du grand Vésuve . Magique.
