Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
Meet your expert guide and air-conditioned coach outside your centrally located Sorrento hotel, or at a nearby prearranged location if the coach is unable to access the front of your hotel.
Enjoy your scenic journey along the coastline and through the terracotta towns, arriving in the shadow of Mt Vesuvius after approximately an hour. Then, gape in awe as your head cranes backward and you take in the incredible Mt Vesuvius before you.
As the coach ascends up the side of the volcano, listen to stories from your guide that transport you back some 2,000 years to 79 AD when the violent eruption obliterated the roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. The two towns were submerged under torrents of lava and mud, extinguishing an estimated 16,000 lives.
After reaching an altitude of roughly 1,000 meters, climb out of your coach and marvel at the breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views of the Bay of Naples, the Sorrento Peninsula and the islands of Capri and Ischia. As you soak up the views, have your camera ready to capture those picture-perfect photos.
If you’re feeling daring, walk up to the top of the crater with your expert guide and listen as they explain the history of this incredible area. As you stroll around the vast rim, peer into the depths of the crater to see plumes of steam rising from the dormant, but still active, volcano.
After some time at the summit of Mt Vesuvius, follow your guide back to the coach, and then sit back and relax as you enjoy the journey back to your hotel in Sorrento.
