Full description

Discover the many wonders of Campania with a day trip that takes you from Sorrento to Castellammare and then on to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius, in a mix of history, nature, culture and fun!

You will sail along the Sorrento Coast, visit the famous excavations of Pompeii, explore the Vesuvius National Park, and end with a refreshing dip in the Tyrrhenian Sea.

An intense day full of surprises and emotions awaits you, always accompanied by expert guides who will help you experience the charm and variety of these places. We look forward to seeing you on board!

What we will do

We will meet at 8:00 a.m. at the meeting point in Sorrento (NA), where we will be picked up by a shuttle that will take us to the port. Once on the boat, we will head to Castellammare di Stabia to take a private bus to the excavations of Pompeii.

Accompanied by an authorised guide, we will have about 2.5 hours to stroll through the picturesque streets of the ancient city, immersed in the history of the place and surrounded by the archaeological remains left intact after the eruption.

After visiting the excavations, we will head to a lovely vineyard at the foot of Vesuvius where lunch and a tasting of local wines await us. We will then reach the Vesuvius National Park and walk with a mountain guide along the magnificent paths along the crater of the volcano, enjoying breathtaking views of the Campania hinterland.

Back at the port of Castellammare, we will embark again to return to Sorrento and on the way back we will stop for a refreshing swim and some snorkelling in the crystal clear waters of the Sorrento Coast.

The activity will last a total of about 8.5 hours and will end with the return by shuttle bus to the initial meeting point.
