1. Pompeii, Capri and Sorrento 2-Day Tour

Day 1 Delight in a scenic drive from Rome through the beautiful countryside of Castelli Romani and its medieval villages. Admire the panoramic view of Naples, an ancient city buzzing with modern life. After lunch, you'll travel back in time to 79 A.D.

Day 2 For departures from April to October, depart after breakfast and relax on a boat trip to the stunning resort island of Capri. Good weather will allow a visit to the magical blue waters of the Grotta Azzurra caves. Then, unwind on a scenic drive up to Anacapri for breathtaking views of the Bay of Naples and a delicious local meal. In your free time, enjoy shopping in the piazza, and explore the cozy streets of Capri. Afterwards, enjoy sun and sea air on the coast. For departures from November to March, you'll have free time in Sorrento to discover the coast or to take a trip to Capri on your own (not included).

From Rome: Full-Day Pompeii and its Ruins

2. From Rome: Full-Day Pompeii and its Ruins

Join this amazing journey through space and time, entering Pompeii: a unique document of Greco-Roman life.  Begin your journey down the “Highway of the Sun”, passing through the famous Roman countryside, Castelli Romani. Enjoy incredible views of the Mediterranean, Mount Vesuvius, and countless historic sites. You will also enjoy a short sight of the city, the seashore and the gulf of Naples. After stopping for a traditional Italian lunch, make your way to the UNESCO Archaeological Site of Pompeii with Skip the Line Tickets. Spend the afternoon exploring this once thriving city that was frozen in time by layers of volcanic ash. Pompeii remained buried under a layer of pumice stones and ash 19 to 23 feet (6 to 7 meters) deep. The city’s sudden burial served to protect it for the next 17 centuries from vandalism, looting and the destructive effects of climate and heavy weather.  After your tour of Pompeii, resume your trip through the Roman countryside, enjoying the scenery as you leisurely make your way back to Rome. Return in time to enjoy the rest of the night in Rome at your leisure.

What people are saying about Pompei

Fantastic Tour

Our knowledgeable tour managers and tour guides made our tour fantastic. Our tour guide in Pompeii was very knowledgeable. Our tour manager for one day tour from Sorento to Capri, Mr. Sasha, was very efficient, He really managed that one day Capri tour in a very fantastic way by ensuring that we visit all places given in our itinerary. Our tour coordinator Carra from Capri to Rome via Naples was very helpful and beautiful. She helped me in catching my last train from Naples to Florence, which would otherwise have been missed. I am grateful to all the tour managers and guides. With respect the accommodation, group members were accommodated in different hotel. We were provided the hotel on the mountain. There was a terrace on the first floor of the hotel, from where the outside view of the bay was very good. The dinner and breakfast in the hotel was very good, especially the lemon cake was amazing. The Pizza in Naples was one of the best. Lemon slush in Pompeii and Capri was excellent.

Awesome day.

This was a great trip. We were picked up at our hotel, right on time and took a bus to Naple and Pompeii. Lunch was included and we actually had an archaeologist that led the tour. He was so knowledgeable and we really enjoyed it.

It was a good experience, we really liked it. The only complain I have is that they don’t let you go to a nearby hotel for the pick up, and the directions of the other location are far from downtown.

Just perfect

Guide was great. Lunch was nice. A long day but worth the trip. And nothing to do for the parents, it was perfect

Amazing day, our guide was very knowledgeable! We also had a fantastic lunch that was included.
