1. Naples or Sorrento: Full-Day Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius Tour
Explore the world-famous Pompeii ruins and Mount Vesuvius on a guided day trip starting from Naples or Sorrento. Enjoy skip-the-line entry to Pompeii and admire the Bay of Naples from Vesuvius’ summit. Start at Pompeii, where you can skip the ticket line before your guided walking tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. With your guide, inspect well-preserved ruins, artworks, mosaics, and frescoes, including the Roman Forum, and Temple of Apollo. Even glance at plaster casts of people in the city at the time of Vesuvius’ eruption in AD 79. Exit the archeological site with your guide and visit the surrounding shops and cafes. Choose the lunch option for a three-course meal consisting of a starter, main course, dessert, and one drink. Next up is Mount Vesuvius. Skip the majority of the arduous climb, with your vehicle taking you 1000m up the volcano. From there, step out and make your own way to the crater’s edge on a 30-minute ascent. On the way, you may come across an official alpine guide who can share the volcano’s turbulent history with you. Arrive at the summit where you can enjoy and photograph the unforgettable views over the whole of the Bay of Naples. The day trip ends with a transfer back to Naples or Sorrento. Let the activity provider know in advance if you wish to be dropped back in Naples if you departed from Sorrento or vice versa.
