Tour Overview

A day-long guided combination tour at Pompeii and Sorrento (a UNESCO world heritage listed site) takes you to some of the world’s most magnificent historical monuments in the most picturesque areas of Italy. Go through the ruins of Pompeii and then go to Sorrento, to experience a beautiful coastal treasure.

You will be acquainted with a luxury Mercedes vehicle, on which you will leave Rome for Pompeii. Your archaeological specialist tour guide will explain everything about the ancient streets, historic bakeries, stalls, stores, private and communal dwellings, public baths, and brothels that have been preserved in this city.


The history of Pompeii is dreadful. The people of the city faced the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius on August 25, 79 AD. The whole population was destroyed by the volcanic eruption. Even after 2000 years, such remains may still be seen. You’ll feel like you’ve been transported back in time as you listen to the stories of the ancient ruins.


This full-day trip of the Amalfi Coast from Sorrento will show you the famed splendor of one of Italy’s most iconic coastlines. Travel through stunning coastal roads in an air-conditioned coach, pausing to see the region’s three most popular and picturesque villages: Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. Enjoy free time in each town, guided by your experienced guide, to wander narrow cobblestone streets and buy unique handcrafted products at Sorrento

Very Good



Great journey!

The trip to Pompeii was very enjoyable, as the guide truly made the walkthrough very exciting and explained about the city immortalized by the eruption of volcanic Mt. Vesuvius. After Pompeii then headed to the outstanding coastal town in southwestern Italy, Sorrento. Taste of authentic Neapolitan Pizza and driving through the attractive streets of Sorrento and drinking limoncello was just awesome. I would recommend this tour!

Take a break from Rome and go there!!

Combining Pompeii and Sorrento day-long tours added an unforgettable experience on my top first 5 trip memory. Pompeii was astounding to see, an excellent heritage and captivating archaeological site in Rome. The trip to Sorrento was satisfying and stopping for pics of the Amalfi coast on the way was superb. Authentic Neapolitan pizza lunch and the limoncello tasting place was fantastic.

I urge you to go on this tour!!

Shocking an amazing tour! A very small group tour - only 7 people! Got mesmerized by the immortalized city Pompeii and the coastal town Sorrento. Breathtaking views of both places took me by surprise and I learned a lot about the places which was really awesome. An archaeological expert guide provided insights about the Pompeii was really praiseworthy. Cruise around Sorrento, gazed at the excellent sea views with the natural charm you simply can’t miss!



Amazing experience! Great tour provider

One of the best tours I've had in Italy. My wife and 12 years kid enjoyed the tour a lot! Lods to see, so much to experience. The day-long tour was enough to absorb it all. I can say this company is one of the finest tour providers in Rome. I’ve done Vatican and Colosseum tours with them. I would love to express my gratitude to the team of Rome tour tickets for arranging such awesome tours that leave travelers speechless!! Amazing in a word!!



Wonderful tour experience:::)

I am so pleased we decided to take a day-long guided tour from Rome with transportation instead of going it alone. A wonderful package that was so satisfying from start to finish. The most helpful part was our guide in Pompeii described everything in a fun and competent way. Pompeii is a really attractive place with a rich history, and Sorrento is charming with some breathtaking coastal views. It was organized so well and worth the value of money. Special Thank you goes to the company for this amazing experience :-)



Pompeii & Sorrento both are wonderful

Had a wonderful day touring Pompeii and Sorrento. Pompeii was interesting. Remnants that are unchanged for almost 2000 years. The guide was very informative and we learned a lot of historical facts from him. Lunch was enjoyable. Sorrento is apparently one of the most attractive spots in Italy and I would not delay recommending this trip. It was delightful to see both sites.



Fascinating tour indeed!!

Pompeii and Sorrento are fascinating cities and filled with history. Both parts of the tour deserve much more than just I could describe. Tour was nicely organized. A trip to Italy is incomplete without a visit to Pompeii and Sorrento. The breathtaking Amalfi coast and the Tyrrhenian coast with panoramic scenes was a lifetime experience. Had the best limoncello in Sorrento, the home of limoncello. Awesome tour.

Great day out so much fun!

One of the best decisions I made while planning my Italy trip. This was a dazzling tour by a well-run company. Best money that we ever spent on a tour. Each of the day-long tours was of tremendous quality. The landscapes are just breathtaking. Wonderful excursion no doubt. If you want a break from Rome you should book this tour.

Great tour service!

As a nature lover, I was always eager to visit the most beautiful natural places around the world. Before visiting Italy, I made a list of must-visit places for me where Sorrento was one of my top charts. This one day trip from Rome to Pompeii and Sorrento as well made my tour experience outstanding with mixed feelings of history, art, culture, and natural beauty at the same time. Highly recommendable tour for all!



Best company for a daylong tour

From beginning to end, the trip was unquestionably excellent. My friend and I did a fabulous tour around Pompeii and Sorrento with a very small group. We booked a day-long guided tour as the Pompeii is quite big and needs someone to guide there. Our tour guide was awe-inspiring and explained everything in detail. He was super quiet, instructive. Sorrento was also fascinating. It’s a long day but I think it was spread out very well, and we got to spend a great quantity of time in both places.I have to say it’s the best company in Rome for daylong tours. 3 tours with this company and all went so well.
