Start your morning with a pickup from central Sorrento or your hotel in an air-conditioned coach. Then, make the roughly 40-minute journey inland to Pompeii.

Lying at the feet of Vesuvius, Pompeii is one of Italy’s largest and best preserved ancient ruins. Explore the excavated city with its baths and villas on a roughly 2-hour tour with a guide. Walk cobbled streets thousands of years old, and see frescos that have lived through centuries.

Afterward, head to Vesuvius, where you drive to an altitude of 3,280 feet (1,000 meters). Spend some free time at the crater, and opt for a tour with a mountain guide should you want it (own expense).

Then, return to Sorrento with your group, and finish with a drop-off at your original departure point.
Locations visited
Pompeii - Archaeological Area.
Travel Etc.
Bus tours often visit Mt. Vesuvius and Pompeii separately, but this tour allows you to visit both in one day. Let someone else worry about logistics, driving, and parking, and spend the day visiting two of southern Italy’s greatest attractions. Tour Pompeii with a guide, then visit the crater of the volcano that buried the city in ash nearly two millennia ago.
  • Visit Pompeii and Sorrento in one day
  • Travel by air-conditioned coach, convenient during hot southern Italian summers
  • See a lot in one day and return to Sorrento in time for an early dinner
  • Upgrade for a guided tour of the Vesuvius crater

Good day trip

I really enjoyed this day trip. Only complaint was that our guide seemed a little unenthused, but the amazing sites made up for it!
