Tour itinerary

The tour itinerary shown below gives the three day tour option for this Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri tour from Rome. If you are interested in the two day tour option, please contact us.

Day 1: Naples and Pompeii
Leaving Rome in a southerly direction, you will discover the historic cities of Naples and Pompeii. Naples and Pompeii sit close to the imposing volcano of Mount Vesuvius, which in 79 AD erupted with violent strength. Pompeii was destroyed and hidden by a veil of ash, which served to preserve ancient life. Centuries later, the ruins were discovered and it is now possible to visit and experience how people lived thousands of years ago.

As part of this tour you will enjoy:

  • A bus ride along the "Highway of the Sun" as you journey from Rome to Naples
  • A view of the Abbey of Montecassino
  • Ancient fishing quarter of Santa Lucia with the impressive Castel dell'Ovo
  • City tour of Naples, including Piazza del Plebiscito, the Royal Palace, the Basilica of San Francesco di Paola, the San Carlo Opera House, the Gallery of Umberto I and the Maschio Angioino
  • Views of Mount Vesuvius and the towns of Ercolano, Torre del Greco and Torre Annunziata
  • Tour of Pompeii with a local, fully trained guide (2 hours)

Your day of adventure will be followed by a drive along one of the most beautiful panoramic roads in Italy known as the ‘Costiera Sorrentina', to which the town of Sorrento - your destination - gives its name. Upon arrival in Sorrento, you will be driven to your hotel, where you will have a chance to settle in before being treated to dinner. Enjoy your night in Sorrento!

Day 2: Sorrento and Capri
After breakfast, you will be transfered to the port of Sorrento, from where you can enjoy an exhilarating 20 minutes jet boat ride to the idyllic island of Capri. The port of Capri is called Marina Grande and, from here, you can board a motorboat to visit the Blue Grotto (weather permitting). This enchanting natural cave is accessed via a rowboat and is a site of true natural beauty as the cave is illuminated with beautiful, sparkling blue light that makes for a magical experience.

After your visit to the Blue Grotto, you will enjoy a panoramic tour of Capri and Anacapri, which is made by minibus and on foot, and you will be treated to lunch at a local restaurant.

Although Capri is a small island, there is plenty to discover, including botanic gardens and beautiful coastal landscapes. During your time on the island, there will be free time to explore and visit the boutique shops before returning to your hotel. Note that you can have the option of staying a night in Capri if you prefer that over Sorrento.

Day 3: Free time
We have deliberately left this day free so that you can discover the charms of the Amalfi Coast and seek out local delights in one of the boutique shops that adorn the streets of both Sorrento and Capri. In the afternoon, you will be transferred back to Rome by coach. Approximate arrival back in Rome will be 8pm.

This tour from Rome to Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri is also available as a 2 day tour, with prices from £309 per person. If you would prefer the 2 day tour option, please just let us know.
