What You Can Expect

Small-Group Pompeii and Sorrento Rail Day Trip from Rome

Make your own way to Piazza dei Cinquecento to meet your guide for the day. Then, hop aboard your train for the high-speed journey to Naples, and then continue by transfer to Pompeii. Bypass the entrance lines and head straight inside with your skip-the-line ticket to explore the archaeological digs.

Your 2-hour tour takes in the streets around the ancient town as well as the domus of Pompeii — a site to which your group has exclusive access. Learn about Pompeii’s upper-class gentry who lived in these houses as you wander around.

Enjoy a break to shop for keepsakes and perhaps a snack, and then relax on the journey to nearby Sorrento: gateway to the Amalfi Coast. Sip the local limoncello, the popular southern Italian liqueur, and hear tales of Sorrentine culture and history from your guide as you explore artisan shops in the town.

Make the most of some free time for lunch, and then later, at a prearranged time, return to Rome by high-speed train.

What a day! There is so much to see outside Rome and this tour took us to see it. Pompeii was everything we hoped it would be and Sorrentos charm has been keeping us talking ever since. Never would have been able to have this experience without this tour. Time and money well spent!

No better way to get to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast than the high-speed train. We got to Naples before I had even finished reading my guidebook, which I didnt need thanks to the level of information provided by Fabian and our Pompeii local guide. My wife thought Sorrento was romantic and I have to admit walking through those tiny streets I felt like we were on our honeymoon all over again. Will come again!

Couldnt imagine my trip to Italy without this tour. Our fact-filled guides and the bullet train made it the easiest day of sightseeing and we did so much. Pompeii is one of the most amazing places Ive ever been to, so real. The guide Cesar knew what was under each and every stone. Sorrento was an even bigger surprise. The restaurant Cesar recommended had the most breathtaking view Ive ever seen. Nothing like this back home. The local lemon liquor limoncello was the perfect touch. Will miss Italy this winter!

This was a wonderful trip. Even though there were just 22 of us to start, we were still divided into two smaller groups to tour Pompeii, which made hearing the commentary and getting around in general easier. The drive to Sorrento was beautiful and lunch there was in a restaurant with a huge menu and a great view. One highlight for us was the limoncello tasting at two different businesses and time on our own to explore a beautiful city. Fabian is definitely a five star guide----we thoroughly enjoyed our day with him.

Claudio sp? was a terrific guide the best we had over our four guided tours on this trip. He was informative, engaging, and really knew his area. Even when we were with our Pompeii docent guide, Claudio stayed with us and pointed out things our docent almost overlooked. Handling of our small group at the train station at both ends was very good. Our best tour on the entire trip. Sorrento was wonderful as well, and we are convinced we want to return some day!
