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 2-hour tour through the remains of this UNESCO world heritage site remarkably frozen in time for almost 2,000 years. One of the most popular destinations in the world, you will 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. You will return to Sorrento at approximately 5:15 PM, where you will be dropped off at your hotel, the cruise ship, or the railway station.

Was a great all round trip, we enjoyed the visit to Pompeii & the pizza was superb with a soft drink or beer included. Then on a bus to walk up Mount Vesuvius. Mini bus driver was lovely & both guides were very knowledgeable. I say book it you want regret it

Pick arrangements were excellent and we met up with our guide whenever we reached Pompeii. The tour was very interesting and the guide was excellent. The lunch was good. Unfortunately our bus broke down on the road to Vesuvius but full credit to our guide who arranged three minibuses which arrived within 15 minutes. I found Vesuvius a bit disappointing. The climb offers spectacular views of Naples and Capri but I felt that Vesuvius National Park should provide information boards along the path to tell visitors about the amazing story of the eruption in 79 AD. This is just a personal view of the Vesuvius National Park and not a criticism of the tour itself. The overall arrangements were flexible enough to overcome the bus breakdown and credit is due for this

This was a big day. The tour was good, pompeii was very cool, I just wish we had had more time to explore it - it felt like a very short tour! Same with the museum at the end, we just looked at a little part of it. However our guide was very good and I liked the information given. Vesuvius was great - transport was decent, but one of the busses was sooo hot. It felt a little confusing being shuffled around - maybe the guides should have some signage to help the tour guests when they have to move between different guides and busses.
