Full description
On this full-day tour from Naples you will visit the ancient city of Pompeii and the town of Sorrento. You will be picked up either at your hotel or one of the meeting points in the morning. Head to Pompeii to explore one of the most fascinating places in the Province of Naples with a professional guide. Here you can learn the history of the rich and populated Roman town that was buried under tons of volcanic ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the year 79 AD. Almost 2,000 years later, you have the opportunity to discover the everyday life of the Imperial Age and imagine the panic of the people before the city was so disastrously buried. On the 2-hour walking tour, your guide will show you fascinating places such as the Forum, the Thermal Baths, the Lupanar, and House of the Vettii with its beautiful frescos. After visiting Pompeii, you will take a brief stop for lunch before heading towards the Sorrento coast. On the way there you can admire the medieval castle, the town of Castellammare di Stabia Comes, the small and enchanting beaches of Vico Equense and Seiano, and the typical Mediterranean vegetation of lemon and orange trees. You will also stop at the panoramic viewpoint in Meta di Sorrento to look up to the wonderful sight of the bay overlooking the sea. You will visit Sorrento and take a 1-hour tour of the town. Here you will walk through the narrow streets and see the stores and little workshops as the guide shows you around the most renowned places. Visit the Villa Comunale, from where you can admire the breathtaking scenery and the beauty of the coast as far as Punta Campanella and Capri Island.

In general, the tour was good, the departure was a little delayed but we had good time. The explanation of the guide in Pompeii very interesting. As for the walk to Sorrento, it's very short, it doesn't give you time to really explore the city calmly, you have to do it very quickly and not stop anywhere, that was the only thing I didn't love. Apart from that I recommend it, and if the guides could extend the time in Sorrento it would be even better :)

The visit to Pompeii was very interesting and we liked the guide very much. The pizza meal with drink was a bit stressful, they gave us little time before leaving for Sorrento and also the pizzeria was late in serving us, we had to eat in 10 minutes… Sorrento and the Sorrento coast, which is not Amalfi as they say on the excursion, very good, little time in Sorrento.

In general it was good, but some things can be improved: the food in Pompeii and the departure for the next activity were somewhat chaotic and confusing. The food, in addition, very scarce and without the possibility of paying for any extra. I also found it quite difficult to find the post activity guide. During the visit in Pompeii, it was difficult to locate the guide and follow her among so many unknown people.
