Pompeii, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast

The eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. buried the entire city of Pompeii in ashes and ended the lives of 20,000 of its residents. Explore this now well-preserved UNESCO archeological site and see intact buildings, art, scenes of everyday life, and even the people themselves.

Once you have arrived in Pompeii, you will be accompanied the entire way with an English-speaking expert local guide, who will make sure you make the most of your visit to this important site.

From here you will take a ride along a picturesque coastal road to Sorrento, complete with stunning views of the Bay of Naples and the Island of Capri. Stroll through Sorrento's old city centre and admire the ancient churches and monasteries. While here, take some time for a traditional Italian lunch (at your own expense), then head over to the Cloister of San Francesco, Gothic style church that is a popular venue for weddings. Stand inside the courtyard and be surrounded by 360 degrees of beautiful medieval arches. Inside the Correale di Terranova Museum you can see Greek and Roman archeological findings from the area.

Finally, take in spectacular views of Positano and the Amalfi coast on your way back to the port. Spend the day visiting highlights along the stunning Amalfi Coast by booking this small group, full-day tour now.

Please Note: Admission to the Pompeii archaeological site is not included in the tour price. Guests must bring at least 15 EUR (price is approximate and may change without notice) per person in cash to be paid at the site on the day of the tour. Due to EU Anti-Pollution laws and regulations, tour operators are required to turn off vehicles when making stops. The tour may be conducted in reverse order, at the guide's discretion, for logistical reasons. Due to possible heavy traffic on weekends, festive days & other occasions, the stop at Positano may be skipped in order to make sure guests get back to their ship on time.

Very good!

Great excursion. Fits in a lot of good moments in a short time. And we had a great guide in Stefano (if i remember his name right). Wish we had more time in Pompeii instead of lining up to get tickets.

Wonderful Day

We could have been happier with our Excursion. Our tour guide was amazing, fun and we had a lot of fun with her for the day. It was a little cloudy but what an amazing wonderful day, our bus driver got us out of a potential line of traffic that would have stolen more than an hour of our time. Absolutely would recommend this to her

Solid full day drive through the countryside with stops for pictures and an excellent tour of Pompeii. We were one person shore of having ear phones that would have helped understanding our guides accent

Loved this excursion. With only 14 people on this excursion, it was wonderful. The tour guide and the driver were awesome. A great memory of this beautiful area.

I am so glad that I booked this excursion versus taking a similar one through the cruise ship. The small group environment lends itself to a more personalized tour than what the cruise ship cattle call can offer. Our tour guide and driver, I've forgotten their names, were very attentive and had a great sense of humor. They provided a fantastic experience and were very knowledgeable. I will definitely book my future excursions through Shore Excursions Group!
