Start your day trip with a pickup from central Sorrento or your hotel; the local operator will confirm before you travel.
Once on the coach, you’ll travel inland, away from the coast to the ancient city of Pompeii. Famous as the city that lay buried beneath mounds of volcanic ash after the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, Pompeii today is one of Italy’s largest — and best preserved — complex of ruins.
See its highlights on a 2-hour tour with a guide, and wander through the historic streets to see old Roman baths, villas, and forums.
Leave Pompeii after your tour, and head onward to Mt. Vesuvius, traveling to an altitude of 3, 280 feet (1,000 meters). How you spend your time at the crater is up to you; a local mountain guide is on hand, should you want a guided tour at your own expense.
Later, you’ll return to Sorrento with your group, and finish with a drop-off at the start point.
