This tour does not include lunch or entrance fees for the excavations of Pompeii or to Vesuvius, including the first 'free' Sunday of the month.
The tour departs from Sorrento at 8:10 AM and returns at 5:00 PM, with a half-hour drive along the scenic Sorrentine Peninsula before arriving at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Pompeii.
