    What to Expect
    Meet your expert guide outside your central Sorrento hotel or other pre-arranged pick-up location to board an air-conditioned coach, then relax as you are transported up a mountain and back in time.

    Wind along a scenic coastline beside pretty towns, and then after about an hour, begin the ascent up Mt. Vesuvius.  As the coach makes its way up the mountain, your guide sets the scene with the story of the massive eruptions that took place here more than 2,000 years ago. The thriving ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum were both inundated with ash, killing roughly 16,000 people and burying entire towns.

    The coach climbs to nearly 3,300 feet (1,000 meters), where you’ll have an opportunity to enjoy a thrilling 360-degree view that includes the Sorrentine Peninsula, the Bay of Naples, the island of Capri, and the city of Naples far below.

    You can even join your guide for a walk up to the crater itself, learning about the geology and history of the area along the way. Look into the crater of this dormant - but still active - volcano and marvel at the devastation it once created.

    After exploring on your own at the summit of Mt Vesuvius, follow your guide back to the coach for a relaxing drive back to Sorrento where you’ll be dropped off where you were picked up.

    Easy pickup location, coach drops you off as far up the mountain as possible to reduce the hike. A must see.

    Tour guide picked us up from the hotel and we were driven almost most of the way up. Good hike to the top from there and some stunning (an unique) views over Naples, the bay and into the crater. Services are a little basic to...More
