Uncover the history of one of the world’s most dangerous volcanoes, Mount Vesuvius, during this full-day private tour. In AD 79, this great volcano erupted and buried its surroundings, preserving the towns in volcanic debris. Visit Pompeii and Herculaneum to see the destruction the volcano caused. In between tours, visit a family-run winery on the slopes of Vesuvius for a pre-set lunch and wine tasting (at your own expense).

We got picked up from our hotel in Sorrento and had an amazing day at both Pompeii and Herculaneum. It was good to do both sites in one day to see the differences between them and the effects the eruption had on them. The wine tasting and lunch was a welcome break from the heat!!
Fabrizio was fantastic and an excellent historian and made both sites come alive with his knowledge and descriptions. It was good to do a small private tour as we could go at our own pace and spend how long we wanted at each place. We would really recommend Fabrizio and this tour to everyone.

We went on this trip in early July 19 and it was simply fantastic. Fabrizio picked us up from our hotel and the day went from there. At 9am, no Queing, we went straight into Pompei and covered the areas that Fabrizio has learned over time are most enjoyable for a 12 and 9 year old. He made the visit fun with kid's activities including stickers and quizzes and they listened for the full 3 hours, which is testament to Fabrizio's technique. Following that, a delicious lunch on a farm on the side of Mount Vesuvias and a little bit of downtime. Then, an easy transfer to Herculaneum and learning more about the Roman empire from a slightly different perspective and arguably more interesting. We found learning about both Pompei and Heculaneum in the same day helped put everything into wider context from two different towns experiencing the same natural catastrophe. This day was made vary enjoyable and interesting by Fabrizio, who has a wealth of knowledge having worked as guide over many years. He knew all the tricks (don't sit in the long Queues for the men's bathhouse when the women's bathhouse 20 metres away is empty but has all the same construct etc). The local knowledge was invaluable. This is the way to do this trip and ensure maximum bang for your buck. Well done Fabrizio and thank you!
