Daytrip to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius

Discover the archeological wonders of Pompeii and the towering volcano of Mount Vesuvius on this day trip from Sorrento. Less than an hour’s drive from the coast at Sorrento you will find two of Southern Italy’s most important historic and cultural sites. Climb to the crater of the still-active Vesuvius and witness first hand its awesome destructive power as you tour the preserved ruins of the ancient Roman town of Pompeii. Take in the baths, bakeries, theatres and much more as you follow a guided tour or take advantage of an audio-guide to explore individually. Then take a coach trip 1,000m up the volcano and decide for yourself if you want to head for the summit.

Take the scenic road along the Sorrentine peninsula and arrive in Pompeii, the once thriving Roman settlement in the shadow of Vesuvius that was destroyed by its AD 79 eruption. Learn all about the town’s rich past and the events and natural phenomena of the fateful day when volcanic ash, falling pumice stones and molten lava decimated everything in its path.

Then in the afternoon, take the coach to Mount Vesuvius and climb to a height of 1km above sea level. Look out over the stunning views of the Bay of Naples and decide for yourself if you would like to climb the rest of the way to the rim of the crater. If you do so then it is easy to hire walking sticks to aid the ascent and you will definitely not regret your choice as you look down into the volcanic crater.
