4.5 708 Reviews | Add your review

The ancient city of Pompeii, buried in volcanic ash after an epic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Europe’s most visited archaeological treasures. Today the compelling sight makes a popular day trip from Italy’s Amalfi Coast. Here are some tour options from Sorrento.

Half-Day Tours 
With limited time, a half-day Pompeii tour from Sorrento allows you to take in all the highlights on a walking tour. Accompanied by an expert guide, hear how the Roman city’s ruins were so magnificently preserved, then learn more about Roman life as you see the Forum, the Thermal Baths, and the Teatro Grande amphitheater. To maximize your time, opt for a tour that includes hotel pickup and entrance fees.

Full-Day Tours 
Full-day tours from Sorrento mean you can combine a Pompeii tour or shore excursion with a visit to the UNESCO-listed ruins of Herculaneum and enjoy free time to explore each site independently. Other possibilities include sightseeing along the Amalfi Coast, a stop in the seafront town of Positano, or an afternoon cruise out to the island of Capri. Some full-day tours also include extras such as hotel pickup, skip-the-line entrance, or a delicious Italian-style lunch. 

Things to Know 
  • Pompeii is located about 16 miles (25 kilometers) northeast of Sorrento. 
  • It’s about a 45-minute drive or 20-minute train ride to reach Pompeii from Sorrento.
  • Day tours from Sorrento typically last around eight hours, and many tours include hotel pickup and round-trip transportation by bus. 
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for uneven terrain. If you’re visiting Pompeii in summer, be sure to wear sun protection and drink plenty of water—there is little shade at the archaeological site.
