What You Can Expect

Mt Vesuvius 4x4 Tour from Sorrento Including Hike, Lunch and Wine Tasting

Sample traditional Italian wine during a Mt Vesuvius tour!

Board your coach in central Sorrento in the morning and settle in for your 1-hour journey to Vesuvius National Park. Once you enter the park, transfer to an all-terrain 4x4 vehicle and take an air-conditioned ride up the mountain with your guide.

Hop out at Reserve Alto Tirone to start your 30-minute hike along Matrone's Road, a quiet trail that meanders gently up to the volcano's crater. Stop several times along the way to admire the landscape, learn about the history of Mt Vesuvius, and listen as your guide points out sights in the distance such as the city of Naples, nearby Herculaneum, Pompeii and the sweeping Sarno River Valley.

After reaching the top of the crater, at an altitude of roughly 3,445 feet (1,050 meters), enjoy spectacular views of the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrento Peninsula and the islands of Capri and Ischia. Soak up the views, take photos, and then reboard your 4WD vehicle to journey down the mountain. Back amid the foothills of Mt Vesuvius, finish your day with a wine tasting at Le Cantine del Vesuvio winery. Stroll through the vineyards, learn about the winemaking process from a wine expert, and sit down to a leisurely lunch accompanied by a tasting of three of the estate's wines: a white, a red and a rosé.

After lunch, reboard your coach and relax on the drive back to Sorrento, arriving in the late afternoon.

Sample Menu:
Appetizer:
  • Bruschetta with local cheese, salami and cherry tomatoes
Main course:
  • Spaghetti with fresh tomatoes
Dessert:
  • Pastiera (typical Neapolitan cake made with ricotta cheese), served with a shot of grappa

Absolutely brilliant from start to finish. This has been the highlight of our trip to Italy. The views are spectacular and the four wheel drive was hilarious. The lunch and wine tasting was superb. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone staying in the area

Good day out enjoyed the balance of the two parts the walk and lunch. Can't fault this. Except more wine but you have to be realistic

My husband and I were not quite prepared for this! Hike actually means hike - so get ready! We had the time of our lives. Lots and lots of laughs. The weather wasn't great at the top of the volcano but it was still an incredible experience we were actually in clouds, too!. You definitely need a glass of wine or a few! when you're finished so the incorporation of the vineyard and lunch is an excellent touch. Even the Jurassic Park theme trucks that take you up on the mountain are a blast. Definitely wear closed toe shoes and bring a jacket - it can get chilly! This was a once in a lifetime experience - not to be missed!!!

We would highly recommend this tour. We were collected from a coach park in central Sorrento. The park was easy to find and within easy walking distance from hotels. We boarded the coach and made our way to the vineyard first for a bathroom stop. We reached Vesuvius coach park and changed to the 4 x 4 vehicles, these vehicles take you most of the way up to the top and are very bumpy but lots of fun. You get to see how some magnificent views on the way up. Next comes the hike to the top, I would recommend sensible shoes as the pathways are gravel and it is quite steep, it takes roughly 20 mins depending on your group. The hike is so worth it as the views are magnificent and you can take some spectacular photos. At the top there is a bar to buy drinks and a souvenir shop also. You get roughly around 45 mins at the top and the walk back down to the 4 x 4's is much easier. We were then taken by coach to the vineyard where we had a lovely lunch and lots of lovely wine to taste. We had a real good laugh and enjoyed ourselves so much. You get to walk around the vineyard and learn a little about wine making. You can also purchase any wine that you like. I would highly recommend the white wine, it's lovely. Sadly our trip was over and we were taken back to Sorrento and dropped back at the coach park. Our tour guide was Raffy, she was very knowledgable and gave us lots of information. Raffy answered everyone's questions brilliantly, she certainly knows her stuff and she is a lovely lady too. Pointers for the trip - wear sensible shoes and even if the weather is warm, it can get quite cool as you climb Versuvius so a cardigan would be an advantage. Don't forget your camera and bottled water. This is a brilliant trip, not to be missed. A great price too. You will not be disappointed

This tour is great and definitely worth doing on your trip to Sorrento. The views from the top of Mount Vesuvius are just stunning and worth the trek to the top of the crater. The ride on the 4x4 style buses was a lot of fun and probably the most bumpiest thing that you will ever do!
We had Raffy as our tour guide and she was bubbly, lovely and full of energy.
The tour includes a three course lunch with a lovely selection of wines which you can also purchase after as well and take home as a memento.
We met some lovely people on this trip and it's also good value for money.
