Shore excursion from Naples or Sorrento port to Pompeii and Herculaneum

Your private day trip is the perfect choice for those who arrive by cruise/ship at the port of Naples or Sorrento: the pick-up service with a private car/minivan (at disposal a total of 7 hours) will pick you up directly at the harbor and takes you to visit two archaeological sites of great importance: Pompeii and Herculaneum. At the end of the tour, you will be driven back to the port or to your hotel in Sorrento or Naples.

Visit the ruins of Pompeii on a day trip

The first half of the tour will be at Pompeii, frozen during time as a result of the tragic eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD that submerged the entire city up to 10 feet with volcanic materials. You can visit the ruins of Roman shops, spas, gyms, brothels, and other ancient buildings, miraculously preserved over the centuries, discovering amazing pieces of evidence found in the area.

Explore the ruins of Herculaneum and its wonders

Herculaneum, just like Pompeii, was a Roman city that disappeared due to the same eruption. In this case, however, the mud layer of the volcano was so plentiful even to protect it better both from raiders of the treasures and atmospheric agents. You will visit the spacious houses, shrines, baths, and villas of rich Romans in the region, beautifully decorated with frescos and mosaics.

Relax and enjoy your journey

Do not worry about the pick-up, transfer, and drop-off: your professional and private English-speaking driver (at your disposal for a total of 7 hours) will be at your disposal, in order to let you join this fantastic eXPerience. At the end of the tour, you will go back to your hotel or the port (Naples or Sorrento, depending on your requirement) to board your ship.

Enjoyable trip to Pompeii

We booked the trip to Pompeii and Herculaneum. We were picked up in a minibus by our guide Fabia. There were only 8 of us in the end. We were looked after very well. Our guide was very knowledgable about both sites and made it very interesting. Having the earphones made it easy as we could always hear wherever we stood. The restaurant we were taken to at Lunchtime was perfectly fine. I would recommend seeing the sites this way as Pompeii especially is vast and a guide made it so much easier.
