Discover Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius from Sorrento with an English-speaking guide.
Tour in Spanish
Descubre Pompeya y el Vesubio desde Sorrento con una guía de habla española
Bus tours often visit Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii separately, but this tour allows you to visit both in one day. Let someone else worry about logistics, driving, and parking, and spend the day visiting two of Southern Italy’s greatest attractions. Tour Pompeii with a guide and then visit the crater of the volcano that buried the city in ash nearly two millennia ago.
What to Expect
The  morning starts with a pickup from your hotel or a central Sorrento location. Travel in an air-conditioned coach and make the journey inland to Pompeii.

Lying at the feet of Vesuvius, Pompeii is one of Italy’s largest and best-preserved ancient ruins. Explore the excavated city with its baths and villas with a guide. Walk cobbled streets thousands of years old, and see frescos that have survived for centuries.

Afterward, head to Vesuvius, where you drive to an altitude of 3,280 feet (1,000 meters). Spend your free time exploring the crater, or opt for a tour with a mountain guide (own expense).

Then, return to Sorrento with your group, and finish with a drop-off at your original departure point.
