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

Great trip! Great tour guide and value for money. The hike is quite tough but well worth it. The lunch and wine tasting were an excellent finish to a great day.

Very good tour. The hike wasn't too strenuous to the crater. The weather was clear for us, so the views at the top were great! My wife and I were pleased with the lunch and wines. Good variety. Loved the fresh spaghetti! I would recommend this tour.

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

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!!!
