We went to Pompeii on our second day in Sorrento. The weather was damp but crisp, perfect for the long walks. We hired earphones and maps & set off on our own. If you’re good at map reading it’s a doddle. We had 5 hours...More

We booked a tour and the guide made history come alive for us. I didn’t know a lot about the history until after this tour. We could have spent the whole day exploring but unfortunately the tour was only 2 hours.

We visited Pompeii under our own steam from Sorrento using the packed, standing room only, Circumvesuviana train (4.90Euro return) to Pompeii Gavi. Ignore the ticket touts immediately outside the station and walk the few metres to the entrance where it is 15.00Euro to enter. The...More

Hi, Herculaneum is about 20 minutes train ride from Pompeii's "Villa dei Misteri" station. Alternatively, by car it's approx. 15 min., and 7 km. away from Pompeii
