About Pompeii Tour From Sorrento

Step into history with a guided tour from Sorrento to Pompeii, where the ancient past comes alive.

Pompeii Tour From Sorrento

With a two-hour guided tour of the well-preserved ruins, you will gain an insight into the everyday life of the ancient Pompeii civilization. Learn about the devastating end they'd encountered more than 2000 years ago when a powerful Mount Vesuvius erupted, covered the city in ash, and froze it in time!

After collecting your ticket at the Sorrento Train Station Tourist Office, board the high-speed train that will take you to the archaeological sites of Pompeii. With the priority access tickets, skip the lines and follow your guide through the well-structured streets filled with houses and shops where you can admire the ancient mosaics and frescoes. Hear stories about the Pompeii culture as you stroll through the famous villas, public baths, taverns, and the Forum, and gain profound insights into the city's daily routines as you explore bakeries with intact cooking utensils.

Witness one of the oldest standing Roman amphitheaters, where gladiators fought for the entertainment of the local people. Experience the tragic end as you observe the plaster casts, feeling the terror of that moment. During the dig, archaeologists found human-shaped voids in the ash layers that were then filled, providing us with insight into the devastating events of 79 AD. After the tour, you can spend some free time exploring the ruins before returning to Sorrento.

FAQ - Pompeii Tour From Sorrento

Can you do a day trip to Pompeii from Sorrento?

As Pompeii is only a 30-minute train ride away from Sorrento, going on a day trip from Sorrento to Pompeii is not only possible but also highly convenient. The train runs regularly from Sorrento Circumvesuviana Station, and the train station in Pompeii is within walking distance from the archaeological site. You can also take a bus or rent a car to reach Pompeii. However, keep in mind that renting a car can be pricey, and navigating the area's narrow roads can easily get challenging if you're not used to that kind of terrain. The travel time by bus or car is similar to the train but can vary based on traffic conditions. We highly recommend purchasing your Pompeii entrance tickets in advance to skip the line or join a guided tour for an enhanced experience. The site is extensive, and having a professional guiding you through the ruins, offering historical insight and context, can greatly enhance your exploration.
