Know More about this tour

Following the eruption of the volcano, Mount Vesuvius, in the year 79 CE, Pompeii had laid buried and forgotten for hundreds of years. Your guide will take you slowly through some of the ancient streets of Pompeii where you can see the baths, forums and villas built by the prosperous Romans in the year 80 BCE.

After going through Pompeii there will be time for lunch. Followed by the visit to Herculaneum, which was submerged under a torrent of mud and lava that hardened into a soft tufa (a kind of coarse rock) that preserved many of the wooden parts of houses and household objects which can be seen today. A large part of the town is still buried and many treasures wait to be discovered.

Come spend an amazing day discovering the remnants of the prosperous world of the Ancient Romans. After the tour, you will be returned to Sorrento.

  • very good trip...both sites quite interesting and guide was good and interesting. Not the fault of the tour, but Pompeii was packed but we
    managed to negotiate and have a good time.

  • I was unfortunate enough to make the mistake of booking this tour for the first Sunday of the month. Pompeii has free entry on the first Sunday. This meant the site was extremely crowded, which made getting around very hard. Crowds aside, I did enjoy the sites, my only problem with this tour was the lunch. We were given no option as to where we wanted to eat lunch, we were simply loaded onto the bus and driven to a large restaurant and told that all meals are 15 euro. I would have preferred to have been given the option of spending an hour in a restaurant or an hour of free time at Pompeii. Other than that, we had a great day, many interesting things to see.

  • Perfect size group and a very knowledgeable guide. It was great to see Pompeii and Herculaneum.

  • Vanessa was an excellent guide: passionate about her local area and the sites, informative and considerate of the varying needs of the clients. She had given a lot of thought to the best ways to view and understand the sites. The lunch cost an extra 13 EU. While not compulsory, it was hard not to go as there were no suggestions as to where else to eat. While inexpensive, the food was very poor- worst I have had on my holiday. The operator needs to rethink this.

  • The tour was great but would have preferred more time to explore Pompeii.

  • Due to a lot of restoration work we were unable to see major parts of Pompeii but a visit to Herculaneum certainly made up for it. Even in extreme heat this tour was excellent.

  • Tour guide was amazing! You could tell she was very passionate about the sites. Definitely worth the tour. However, I recommend changing the location of the pick up point to something a bit more well known for people staying in Piano.

  • What an amazing place !! Francesca our guide was wonderful from her vast knowledge to making sure her and #34;little family and #34; stayed together 10/10

  • Strong guide very knowledgeable. Big group. Stunning history lesson.
