Discover two of Italy's most celebrated attractions: the ancient city of Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius, the volcano that unleashed its fury on the city in 79 AD. Explore the ruins of what was once a prosperous town in the Roman Empire and enjoy a hike to the crater of the breathtaking volcano.

Journey from Sorrento and head to the now infamous town of Pompeii, nestled in the giant shadow of Mount Vesuvius. Go back in time to see what Roman life would have been like 2,000 years ago, as you stroll around the incredibly well-preserved ruins. Listen as your expert guide regales you with stories of the people that lived in Pompeii and the truth behind their demise.

Then your adventure continues to Mount Vesuvius. Dominating the Bay of Naples, this is the only still-active volcano on the mainland of Europe. It still poses a threat to the people and the surrounding area. Take an opportunity to trek to the top of the volcano and peer into its enormous crater.

The trip was excellent, our tour guide Lia knew everything about Pompeii and Vesuvius, and made us feel very welcome. Certainly worth the money, however, you must make sure you bring money with you as the entry to Pompeii and Vesuvius is an extra fee on the day. I would also recommend to bring food as the restaurant they take you too isn’t particularly cheap. All in all, I would highly recommend visiting these incredible places.

Roberta our tour director was charming and knowledgeable. Chiro, our driver was very skilled, especially on the hairpin turns going up to Mt. Vesuvius. The bus drops you off near the entrance and you take your own time climbing up to the summit. It would be nice to have a guided tour all the way up, but the climb in a group would be almost impossible due to differences in abilities. Roberta gave us the information on the bus before the climb. We could have used more time as the climb is very steep. It takes 40 mins to an hour to climb taking multiple breaks. Good foot wear is imperative. After a lunch on our own, the next stop was Pompeii, where Roberta gave us a 2 hour guided tour. We followed her raised red umbrella all over the ruins. The baths, the forum, shops, and empty villas all came to life with her guidance. Altogether a great day!

The tour was great! Our host was lovely and our bus driver was an all star, our only feedback was the content of the tour was not as informative as we hoped.
