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.

Our guide was excellent she taught us a lot! It was incredibly hot so she thoughtfully found us shady areas to stand and talk. It was truly a beautiful place filled with so much interesting history. Our drivers were also great!

People told us not to bother with Pompeii because it would be too hot, however even in the extreme heat of this summer my husband and I LOVED this trip. Andre, our tour guide was excellent and had a great working knowledge of life in Pompeii. It was honestly one of the coolest things we did. Highly recommended!!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

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.
