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.

  • 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.

Flawless pick up from and return to the hotel. Paolo is an safe and entertaining driver. Elisa is the best guide. She has profound knowledge on Pompeii. Her striking examples of life then and now made our experience of Pompeii so much more understandable and colorful. The tour is just long enough to get a good overview of Pompeii and not getting exhausted. We highly recommend it.

Our tour guide was interesting and funny. Her coverage of the site was great given the two hours given to cover this large site. While this is a half day tour, it does take time to get to and from Pompeii from Sorrento. The shuttle from the hotel is definitely more enjoyable than the train. The headsets were excellent and the size of the group was manageable.
