What You Can Expect

Half-Day Pompeii Sightseeing Trip from Sorrento

Pompeii Three Hour Sightseeing Tour from Sorrento

On a fateful summer's day in 79AD, Mt Vesuvius erupted, spewing volcanic ash over the village of Pompeii. Unaware of the imminent danger, most people continued on with their daily lives and as a result the entire town and around 20,000 of its inhabitants were buried under tons of ash and pumice.

Almost 2,000 years later, you have the opportunity to explore the preserved ruins of this famous disaster. Your guide will show you fascinating places such as The Forum, Thermal Baths, Lupanare and Vetti's House with its beautiful frescos.Before returning to Sorrento, you'll have approximately 30 minutes to spend at leisure in Pompeii - a great opportunity to shop, enjoy lunch or simply relax!

A visit to Pompeii is a trip not to be missed for any visitor to this region of Italy.

The pick and drop off by the bus worked very well - on time and in a small group. Meeting the guide and getting the audio equipment also worked well - it was incredibly busy and amongt the chaos the operators worked very smoothly. Andreas our guide was informative, audible, amusing and energetic.

It was very busy and very hot - not a surprise at Italy's most popular tourist attraction in July - so wear sensible shoes as there is a lot of walking and take a water bottle that can be filled at the original water points - and there are many.

Overall, a great way to see a truly amazing site - I was surprised at how intact it remained but then again it was covered and protected by ash for 1700 years. And great value.

Fantastic tour! I'm not normally a big tour group fan, but this was a smaller group about 19 people. The van picked us up at our hotel on time and saved us the worry of trying to figure out how to get to Pompeii and back. Our guide, Andrea I think that was his name was entertaining, spoke English very well and pointed out things my husband and I would have missed. Definitely recommend.

Wonderful tour. Great ride there, being picked up at the dock in Sorrento after riding the ferry from Isle of Capri. The driver was prompt, and had a sign with our name on it. The tour guide was very entertaining and kept us moving. Lots of walking on uneven ground, so wear comfortable shoes. Saw lots of cool stuff!

Roundtrip transportation to and from my hotel was included. Transportation arrived on-time and the vehicle used was very nice, comfortable and clean. The tour guides were professional, knowledgeable and entertaining. I would recommend taking this tour.
