To know more about your boat trip...

The excavations of Pompeii have been a Unesco Heritage site since 1997. The exceptional state of conservation of the city is due to the terrible eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, when the ash buried men and things under a thick blanket of dust at a depth of about 6 meters. For 1700 years Pompeii was buried, erased from the face of the earth. Sheltered from the elements of the time, the shape of the bodies still intent on their daily activities has remained intact to this day. The first discoveries and objects occured from 1748 and even today new remains are brought to light, because Pompeii lives…


It takes approximately 20 minutes to arrive to the Port of Castellammare di Stabia from Piano di Sorrento.

      All very good!

      Debra J.
      It was a fantastic experience from start to finish! Guide was very knowledgeable and nice, good quality of food and enough time to visit the best part of the ruins and also the Vesuvius Park. At the end of the day I was very glad to admit I chose the perfect tour that combined sea and land. Well recommended.

      Attentive and enthusiastic

      We booked a trip to Pompeii and Vesuvius and we had a great time! From the pickup and drop off to the hotel to the careful planning and enthusiasm of the guide, everything was perfect! He made sure everyone was taken care of, knew everyone by name by the end of the trip and was never without a smile! The boat crew, sweet and professional! The entire staff gave you the feeling they enjoyed their job and they wanted you to enjoy it as well! Highly recommended! Thanks again, guys!

      Fantastic Outing

      We took the boat tour and bus to Pompeii and mount Vesuvius. Great staff and a well informed guide of pompeii. Extra special doing it by boat and worth the extra cost. Bagged lunch was provided. Had a chance to swim in the meditarrean on the way back with drinks provided on the boat. Fabulous day. Recommend bringing a water bottle to refill in the fountains in Pompeii. It was very hot when we went so a small parasol or a good hat would be useful.

      Incredible day trip to Mount Vesuvius, Bosco de Medici wine tour lunch, and Pompeii. Raffaele and Roberta were great to travel on the boat with and Guisy is the BEST tour guide especially for Pompeii. Great way to explore Sorrento with accommodating and friendly tour guides.
