With the Pompeii & Sorrento Day Trip: From Rome, you are covering one of the most stunning historical sites in the world, and also one of the most beautiful parts of Italy. Our driver will collect you from Rome, and after a ride down the "Highway of the Sun", you will reach Pompeii. This is where you will meet your expert local guide who will walk you through the remarkably preserved remains of this Ancient metropolis. 

 

Pompeii

This rare and beautiful archeological site just south of Naples that was covered or ‘flash frozen’ by 13 – 20 feet (4-6 meters) of ash and pumice by the catastrophic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79AD, often times referred to as Julius Caesar’s revenge! Our guide will wake this dormant city up for you, and the incredible remains of a city devoured by one of the most peculiar natural disasters ever, will come alive. 

 

Sorrento

After you are finished exploring Pompeii, still gathering your impressions on this lost city, our driver will collect you and bring you down the winding roads of the beautiful Italian coast, all the way down to Sorrento. You will have time to leisurely explore the center of this charming coastal gem, have a typical local lunch and enjoy a coffee, gelato or a limoncello in some of it’s historical restaurant and bar venues. You don't know what limoncello is? Well in that case, you couldn't have picked a better destination to visit on this day!

 

Door-To-Door Service

With this day trip, our driver will collect you from your accommodation in Rome, and bring you back at the end of the day. They will stay with you throughout the day, bringing you from location to location, thus making this highly unlikely day possible for you!

How many times in your life will you be able to say that you walked through an almost perfectly preserved ancient city that was destroyed by a disastrous volcano eruption? We are guessing not too many, that’s why we offer this awesome experience of a lifetime.

Private Pompeii Tour

This tour was fantastic and we will definitelly be booking with the Roman Guy in the future. The private guide was really wonderful and everyone worked with us to make sure we had the perfect trip!

Pompeii Day Trip

This tour was excellent. Very simple and my family loved having a guide to ourselves. We explored Pompeii and Sorrento and our driver and guide were fantastic. Their team was very helpful when we were trying to decide what to book. The Roman Guy has fantastic tours and fantastic customer service!

Excellent Private Historical Tour

This was a great tour and the Roman Guy made it very simple to book. Their customer service was great and they made sure everything was arranged for us. My family loved the tour and thought Pompeii was very cool, the guide clearly knew her history. Will definitely book with the Roman guy again.
