Rome to Pompeii Tour
Begin your day trip in Rome. At the designated spot, meet your driver and fellow travelers to begin the drive down the Autostrada del Sole (Highway of the Sun) to the Gulf of Naples. When you arrive in Pompeii, it’s time to meet your professional archaeologist guide and begin your guided tour. What remains of the UNESCO World Heritage Site is an incredible standing testament to this once prosperous ancient Roman city.
Guided Tour of Pompeii
Using your priority entrance tickets, enter Pompeii and see the well-preserved markets, piazzas, theaters and even a brothel. Flash frozen in time by ash by the massive eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D., the intact relics of this ancient Roman city tell the story of its long-lost residents. After the eruption, the city lay abandoned under volcanic ash for almost 2,000 years. Then, in 1748, some explorers discovered that beneath the ash, Pompeii was still standing. The result? An unparalleled glimpse into ancient Roman history.
Your Rome day trip doesn’t end there. After your guided tour of Pompeii, climb aboard your mini-coach once again. Now, it’s time to head to the stunning seaside town of Sorrento. Take in the views as you wind along the Gulf of Naples on the way to your next destination: Sorrento. In Sorrento, enjoy some free time to explore the city and grab some lunch (not included in the price of the day trip).
Situated on a cliff and surrounded by olive and lemon groves, Sorrento was an important trading post in the middle ages. Make sure you sample some limoncello: Sorrento is well-known for the delicious lemon liqueur. And before you go, grab some good olive oil to take home and share with your loved ones. Finally, at the end of your Rome day trip, head back to Rome with a camera full of pictures and a deeper understanding of Italy’s rich cultural and historical heritage.

PERFECT POMPEII TOUR
We can not express how absolutely perfect this day to Pompeii and Sorrento was! Sonia (our coordinator) and Fabio (our driver) were more than accommodating and did everything in their power to make our day trip out of the City a memorable one. Our group was very small, six total, which made the day even more worthwhile! Picked up promptly we arrived at Pompeii and met up with Carla, our guide for the archeological site. She was amazing and fit in so much in the time we had. While the ancient city of Pompeii was flooded with tourist, Carla took us to all the main sights, and explained what we were looking at in detail and gave us more than ample time for pictures. After our visit, off to Sorrento. Sonia picked out a WONDERFUL place for lunch with a million dollar view. After laughing and sharing a meal, we wandered the narrow streets of Sorrento. Then, Fabio and Sonia made an extra stop to the Limoncello factory for a quick taste and purchase. When we arrived at home, Fabio went out of his way to take us to our hotel, which was so nice and after a long day welcoming! We just can't say enough about our day, company and experience! Thank you So Much for a Most Terrific Day!
This day trip was one of the best experiences we had in Italy. My wife loved seeing the history in Sorrento and Sorrento was stunning. We never would have thought to visit otherwise but it was definitely a highlight of our trip. We can't wait to take more tours with the Roman Guy!
Pompeii and Sorrento tour
Wow. Another fabulous tour with the Roman Guy. Tybor met us and shared so much interesting information from meeting to destination, as well as suggestions once in Sorrento, and Claudia, our guide around Pompeii made a lifelong dream of learning and seeing more of this incredible place come true. Exceptional!
