Day Trip from Gaeta to Pompei

Need some assistance please.

We will be on a cruise and will not have an opportunity to visit Pompei when we dock in Sorrento. So, i am hoping someone can tell me if its possible, and who i would contact, about doing a day trip to Pompei from Gaeta. We dock in Gaeta on Monday 10/10 at 8am...and leave port at 5pm.

We can do a tour, rent a car, whatever is the most effective way for us to accomplish this.

Thank you all in advance

A car service would certainly be the easiest route, although the most expensive.

Renting a car and driving yourself is certainly possible; it will be about two hours of driving in each direction.

You can't make that trip in that short of time. It's at least 2 hours just to get to Pompeii.

We are in Gaeta now spending a week because our last name is Gaeta.... it is awesome here. We are having a great time. Yesterday we drove to Pompeii . It was excellent. I was afraid to drive here but after 10 minutes I was driving like an Italian! Just use gps andbubstd good to go ... I screwed up a few times but gps fixes you up each time, It was over 2 hours to get there and then a lot of traffic to get in. We parked behind a restaurant as an attendant flagged us in. He told us if we eat there afterwards that pRking was free so we ate there .... it was amazing and not too expensive. Download the ap for Rick Stevens Pompei and avoid the tour guides. We saw many guides that charge about 15 a head over the 15$ entry fee.... not necessary .... we used the ap and was narrated to all the important sites. Also there is a book u ask for when u get in and that explains stuff too. We left after two hours ... that was plenty ... see one ruin seen em all. Consider a boat trip by Dino and his wife Simone www.oltemarecharter.com instead of Pompeii....he lets you off the boat to swim inside the grottoes .... this was the best thing I ever did in my life..,, amazing..,,
