Our Pompeii tour is the best option for travelers who plan to visit this famous site from Sorrento. Unlike other tour operators, we include all the entrance fees and Skip the Line Access, as well as a 2-hour expertly guided visit of the ruins with carefully selected local guides and a delicious Neapolitan pizza lunch!
When Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD it left a flourishing city in ruin, but it also captured a day in the life of Pompeii forever – turning what once was tragic into modern day magic. These ominous ruins, immortalized in pumice and ash, have literally frozen history in time. On this tour, you’ll enjoy a fully guided 2-hour visit of an awe-inspiring archeological area. Walk in the footsteps of past Pompeian villagers and aristocrats throughout the stone-slabbed streets, where they once went about their daily routines.
Follow your local guide as they recreate the hustle and bustle of this once-busy port town, explaining what each building was used for, where families ate their meals, did laundry and socialized – and where sailors went when they docked. They’ll recreate for you the final days of Pompeii as you examine the harrowing death casts left behind.
Explore their homes, the brightly painted frescoes, and marvelous mosaics. Be inspired by your guide as they bring these relics back to life with details that only the locals would know.
Once you’ve seen it all, we’ll give you a short break for souvenir shopping or a refreshing coffee before heading to the restaurant for your delicious, traditional pizza lunch.
This tour includes round-trip transport from Sorrento in an air-conditioned, comfortable bus. As well as your official local guide in Pompeii, you’ll have an expert, English speaking tour coordinator to entertain you on the way to Sorrento.
If you’d like to extend your day discovering the marvels that are right at your fingertips, our Pompeii and Vesuvius Tour from Sorrento includes the same visit to Pompeii, plus an incredible afternoon filled with the ascent of the iconic volcano, from which you will be able to enjoy breathtaking views over the bay of Naples.
