What You Can Expect

Naples Shore Excursion: Pompeii and Sorrento Day Trip

The Forum in Pompeii

Once docked in Naples, your driver will pick you up from the port and take you by comfortable minivan along the breathtaking Italian coast to the fascinating city of Pompeii.

As you pass magnificent Mt Vesuvius, stop for a great photo opportunity and hear from your guide about the tragic event in 79 AD, when the entire town of Pompeii was buried under ash and pumice from a violent explosion from this active volcano.

Arrive in Pompeii and explore fascinating attractions with your guide on a sightseeing tour. First, see the Forum, formerly the civic center of Pompeii that supported buildings for business, religion and the local government. Visit the Lupanar, the official brothel of Pompeii in ancient days, and see the Thermal Baths to learn how these ancient public baths were once a place for people to relax and socialize.

Then, stop at a local pizzeria (included) for a traditional Italian lunch before continuing to Sorrento. When you arrive, follow your guide on a walking tour of this charming little town. Stroll along the gorgeous beaches of Vico Equense and Seiano and admire the typical Mediterranean vegetation brimming with lemon and orange trees. Your guide will point out the most renowned places as you walk through narrow streets lined with various vendors and quaint workshops.

Stop for a great photo opportunity at a panoramic viewpoint in Meta di Sorrento and marvel at the amazing views of the Bay of Naples and the Mediterranean Sea. Finally, visit Villa Comunale, the largest public park in Sorrento that sits on a cliff overlooking the bay. From here, you can see as far as Punta Campanella and the Island of Capri. Take a moment to soak in the breathtaking scenery before returning to the Naples port.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

Our trip was cut short and we never got to Sorrento due to an accident that impeded the flow of traffic along the coast. Pompeii was great and our guide there very engaging and well spoken.
