Know More about this tour

Rome wasnt built in a day. And common wisdom suggests Pompeii cant be seen in a day either. Not true. This small-group day trip not only takes you to one of the ancient worlds best-preserved sites, it takes you to nearby Sorrento, the beginning of the UNESCO-listed Amalfi Coast.

Meet your expert guide at Piazza dei Cinquecento in front of Rome Termini Station in the morning for the high-speed train to Naples. From there, transfer to Pompeii. Enjoy skip-the-line access and stroll straight into this ancient archaeological site. Spend about two hours strolling the streets on a guided tour. Get exclusive access to the domus of Pompeii, the houses of the erstwhile residents, particulary the upper-class denizens of Pompeii, that were only recently opened.

After some souvenir shopping and a break for refreshments (own expense), head to beautiful Sorrento, the start of the Amalfi Coast. Visit a shop that sells Limoncello, the delicious lemon-accented liquer that is a staple of southern Italy, and partake in a tasting of this fruity libation. Later, discover Sorrento's history and culture as you wander through the narrow streets. Explore handmade sandal workshops, as well as one-of-a-kind souvenir and artisanal food shops. You'll also enjoy free time for lunch (own expense) or to explore independently.

As you prepare to head back to Rome, take ease in knowing that your guide has made all the arrangements for seating on the comfortable high-speed train back to the Italian Capital. Your tour then concludes back at the original start point.

  • Great tour, well organized. Also, the train journey saves a lot of time. The ruins os Pompeii are amazing and Sorrento is beautiful, and gives us a taste of the Amalfi coast. We had lunch overlooking the bay of Naples!

  • A totally delightful day! Every detail was attened to and ran right on time.

  • I actually signed up for the Pompeii and Amalfi Coast tour. Somehow I was scheduled on this tour. I discovered it that morning at the RR station in Rome. Since the tours were traveling to Naples and then to Pompeii together before they parted ways, and since the Amalfi tour was only half full. I asked to be transferred. They said it wouldn't work because the Amalfi tour took longer and they were booked on a later train and they couldn't transfer the tickets. I asked if I independently bought tickets on the later train could I change. They said no because there wasn't time before the bus left to see if tickets were available. Sorrento was beautiful, we had lunch looking over the sea, and the lemon shop was great. I had a very good time, but I was counting on the Amalfi tour.

  • Excellent trip to Pompeii and Sorrento. Our guide, Ches, was fantastic. The train ride and bus was very comfortable. The guide in Rome was right on time and was very helpful in getting our group to the train. Ches met us in Napoli and we quickly got on the air conditioned bus to Pompeii. The Pompeii guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting.

    Sorrento was beautiful and we enjoyed a nice lunch and tour of the town.

  • Great day trip. I would highly recommend. Great tour of Pompei. Guides very knowledgeable and friendly. Sorrento lovely and an afternoon is plenty of time for lunch and to wander around. Small group is a must and worth the cost.

  • Our family of five with two teenagers and a 10 year old had a wonderful day on this trip. Our main guide, Fabian, was great. He was very friendly and knowledgeable and gave us great history and insight about Naples, Sorrento and the whole area. Taking the train from Rome Termini to Naples was easy. Naples seemed very dirty and gritty so we were happy to not stick around there. We had a 20 min drive to Pompeii and a great two hour tour there by our guide, Alfredo. It's an amazing place with so much history. I had been worried we'd have issues with car sickness on our route from Naples/Pompeii to Sorrento, but we were fine. Our bus driver, Mikela, showed impressive driving skills on those small, winding, cliff-side roads. We stopped at a few scenic overlooks for pictures and lemon slush. We went to a lovely restaurant with amazing seaside views in Sorrento and then had a brief walking tour with Fabian. The Lemoncello tasting was interesting but we didn't buy anything. The cameo/jewelry designer demo was very cool. Stop in for a quick visit with him. It was also nice to have a little time to ourselves to explore the beautiful town of Sorrento. We were so happy to have done this tour.

  • Elena was a great guide. The tour was fantastic. A lot of walking on uneven roads and very hot. But it was fantastic

  • We purchased this tour because it was supposed to be limited to 15 people. Instead, our tour was comprised of three separate groups and totaled over 22 people - not including the guides. One of the groups that was included in this tour was an Express Pompeii tour and after speaking to someone from that group I learned that they paid only 50 per person - whereas we paid over 200 per person.

    I personally feel that the company did not sell enough spaces in this tour and decided to save money by consolidated three different tours/groups into one. I do not appreciate that and feel cheated that we paid so much more than other people.

    Save your money and work with another company that will respect you and your money more.

  • We had an absolutely wonderful time on this tour! Our tour guide Cesar was very engaging and made everything come to life. He was so passionate and knowledgeable about the sites. Pompeii was so incredible and Sorrento was absolutely beautiful! Cesar recommended a wonderful restaurant with incredible views. We enjoyed the limoncello tasting and Cesar directed us to a great leather factory store. The train was very quick and the tour bus was very large and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our day. This was the best way to get a chance to visit both Pompeii and Sorrento in one day from Rome.

  • We had a awesome time on this tour. Meeting at the train station was a breeze and being walked to the train left your mind at ease. As a group we walked off the train together to meet our guide for the day Cesare. Once we got to the Pompeii he split us up into small groups 14 and assigned us to our knowledgeable guide. Pompeii was all I had hoped and so much more. After the tour we met up with cesare to continue our tour to Sorento. He took us to some places with fantastic view and stopped for photo opportunities which was great. When we got into the actual town of Sorento we could take off on our own or go have lunch at a place he recommended then have time on our own. We choose to have lunch first to refuel. I believe that was the best food I had had on our entire vacation. The views were stunning. We then had about 1-1/2 hours on our own in town which was beautiful and had a lot of shopping to offer. Our guys was the best and I would highly recommend this tour. A lot of walking was required on uneven streets in Pompeii so I would caution you if you have small children or need strollers. Thanks for the special memories. Donna Payton
