No visit to southern Italy would be complete without a visit to the unique ruins of Pompeii, and this tour is perfect if you're short of time. Explore the ancient city covered by volcanic dust from Mt Vesuvius in AD 79, and see the excavated remains of the Forum, Thermal Baths, Lupanare and Vetti's House.

Highlights

  • Great overview and orientation of the city
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Step back in time on a history tour
On a fateful summer's day in 79AD, Mt Vesuvius erupted, spewing volcanic ash over the village of Pompeii. Unaware of the imminent danger, most people continued on with their daily lives and as a result the entire town and around 20,000 of its inhabitants were buried under tons of ash and pumice.

Almost 2,000 years later, you have the opportunity to explore the preserved ruins of this famous disaster. Your guide will show you fascinating places such as The Forum, Thermal Baths, Lupanare and Vetti's House with its beautiful frescos.Before returning to Sorrento, you'll have approximately 30 minutes to spend at leisure in Pompeii - a great opportunity to shop, enjoy lunch or simply relax!

A visit to Pompeii is a trip not to be missed for any visitor to this region of Italy.

Our guide Andrew was exceptional. He made history come alive with his side notes and humor. Really enjoyed the tour.

Reviewed by: Madeline, October 2014

This was an excellent tour of Pompeii - the tour itself was about 2 hours walking around Pompeii - our guide was very informative and very personable - he made the tour fun! The other 2 hours were spent on a bus riding to and from Pompeii .,but if you just want to ensure you see Pompeii while in this area of Italy - I do recomend this. Viatour picked us up when they said they would from our cruise ship and got us back in plenty of time to still spend time in Sorrento.
