This was a day we will never forget. We began at Vesuvius where we climbed to the crater. Spectacular views. From there we had an amazing wine tasting/lunch/tour, followed by a trip to Pompeii. Our driver, Alberto, was kind, funny, and a good driver. Angela and Serafino from the winery were utterly delightful. A wonderful day.
Trip only allows 2 hours at Pompeii, was very busy, took half an hour to get ticket, queuing for tickets difficult unless you opt for a guide. No maps on display, didn't find them until we were leaving. With so many guided tours you can't get to the best sites as again so busy, often blocking your passage through and was ticked off twice by rude guides when trying to get through. Think they are trying to make it difficult to go visit without taking a guide. Herculaneum was great and a lot quieter, but still good to see both. Cantina del Vesuvius for lunch was excellent. Our driver was so nice. Overall a great day out.
