Full description

Visit the ruins of Pompeii and discover the shops, brothels, baths and villas of an everyday town of the Roman Republic, buried under lava and ash when Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD. Get a unique insight into the lifestyle of the inhabitants of the ancient town. Then, take a guided tour of the vineyards on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius, and experience the passion of Sorrentino wines, with viticulture in their dna. Learn about the origins of the wines. Hear about their unique characteristics from the sunburnt ground, and fertilized with periodical lava flows.

Discover the story of wines like “Lacryma Christi”, written by the hand of nature at her most violent. It’s a story that has gone on for decades, thanks to a tenacious family that knew how to support a territory rich in precious fruit. After exploring the vineyards on the “violent” slopes, relax over a delicious Mediterranean lunch, served with wines of the region, such as “Falanghina,” “Lacryma Christi,” “Aglianico” and many other renowned varieties.

Serena was amazing - our host from Hotel to Pompeii to Vineyard and back to hotel again. Really funny and organised, nothing was any trouble for her or the other team. The tour of Pompeii was amazing, such an interesting place and our tour guide was so knowledgeable. The lunch at the Vineyard was delicious and the wines paired with it were incredible. The tour of the vineyard itself was quite short but still managed to learn a lot about the upkeep of the grapes in the short time. Highly recommend this tour.

We had a great time at the wine tasting - a tour of the vineyard followed by the tasting and honestly one of the best meals we had in Italy! The tour of Pompeii was relatively brief but the guide was informative about what we did manage to see. Overall the trip was well organised, the people were friendly - most especially Valentina who was absolutely outstanding and made sure we had a really fun time that we will remember for a long time.

Great but could be improved

Pompeii was amazing, but there was quite a lot of time wasted in the morning getting to Pompeii and starting the tour. Especially when there's lots to see in Pompeii you are left frustrated as you don't have time to fit it all in and the faffing around leaves you frustrated. The wine tastings was exceptional great food and great wine on offer!!!!!!!!!!
