Full description

Enjoy a half-day tour from Sorrento to Vesuvius. Walk along the lip of the volcanic crater while gazing out over the Bay of Naples. Uncover the secrets of the winemaking process and stroll through vineyards with a stop at a winery for lunch and wine tasting.

Be picked up at a centrally-located meeting point in Sorrento and take in views of the Italian countryside on the drive. Pass by unique volcanic landscapes as you make your way to Vesuvius.

Get off the bus and walk to the summit where you can peer into the crater that once destroyed Pomepii. Capture pictures of the surrounding valley's and sea before heading back to the bus and travelling to a local winery at the foot of the mountain.

Take a walk through vineyards where heavy grapes ripen in the sun and learn about the winemaking process. Sit down to a leisurely lunch of bruschetta with cherry tomatoes, local cheese, salami, tomato spaghetti, and Neapolitan pie served with grappa liquor. Compliment your local meal with a tasting of 3 wines from the farm’s own cellars. Sip on a white, a red, and a rosé, and savor the unique flavors produced by the mineral rich volcanic soil. Return to your meeting point in Sorrento after your meal.

Our guide Luigi was fantastic! Had a really good time with him, great humour and such a relaxing delivery which was extremely reassuring! He helped along the way. Vesuvius tour is highly recommended! Wine tasting is great, wine was good and alcohol did its job as at the start, the tour bus was quiet and by the time we all had some wine, we were chatting with each other, sharing laughs and info from where we were from - a small world! Our guide Luigi assisted us in dropping us off in a secure location close to Pompei ruins so we could go and see it after Vesuvius as it was not included and we wanted to explore it. All in all a 10/10!

Firstly our tour guide was excellent, very informative, helpful and friendly. There was plenty of time allocated for the walk up Vesuvius and the views from the top were amazing - a great experience! The trip to the vineyard was a lovely treat after our walk. The food was delicious and plentiful. A different wine with each course and each one was amazing. What a beautiful place. All in all a very well organised excursion, a great day out and well worth the money. Thank you.

Brilliant guide. We enjoyed the Vesuvius walk and transport was very organised. The vineyard was nice and the lunch was fresh and tasty, they also catered for vegetarians well. However I wouldn't quite call it wine tasting as we weren't told about the wines as we tried them. There was no tour of the vines. There was a quick visit to the cellar at the end which was nice but a bit rushed. A nice day but if you are passionate about wine tasting you might be a bit disappointed. Lucy
