Full description
Start your day of adventure by meeting your driver/guide at your hotel. After a short meet and greet, take a brief, scenic drive to the port of Piano di Sorrento. From here you will depart by boat to the port of Castellammare di Stabia where the fun begins.  From your docking point at Castellammare di Stabia you will take a scenic transfer via bus to Pompeii and enjoy a 2.5-hour visit. Take a walk through the living ruins of this ancient city with your experienced, authorized guide who will teach you everything you need to know about this famous place.  Once the visit of Pompeii is over, relax for a while and have lunch in a traditional vineyard. Then, depart from Pompeii to visit Mount Vesuvius, once the site of a live volcano, and learn about this natural wonder with the assistance of a professional guide. From Mount Vesuvius, you will take a transfer back to Castellammare di Stabia before departing by boat to Sorrento. You will take a scenic sailing trip along the coast and have the chance to take a dip in the crystal clear waters. After your sailing trip return to the port of Piano di Sorrento and be transferred back to your hotel.

    Excellent trip from start to finish. Lovely boat ride with water, Prosecco, Beer, Limoncello and snacks offered. Transfers to Vesuvius excellent with option to walk the final 750m … fabulous views at the top. Lunch and wine tasting at vineyard … exceeded expectations … 3 courses! Finally to Pompeii to meet with a guide who was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The whole day ran like clockwork.

    Unique experience. Departure from Sorrento in a semi-private boat to arrive in Castellamare to join the bus. Pompeii tour with very friendly and professional guide and driver. We were able to understand the essort of the city. then one of the best moments of the day, the wine tasting in a vineyard at the foot of Vesuvius with a small meal. From what to continue the ascent of the great Vesuvius. Magic.
