Description

This tour pairs the rugged crater of Vesuvius with Lacrima Christi; a wine rich in mythical history, grown on the very slopes of the fire mountain herself. This volcanic soil rich in minerals is responsible for the high-quality products it produces. We will first take you up the mountain, you will travel by bus to the 1000m mark, from there you will hike the rest to the crater. The views from the top are straight out of the top drawer, so be sure to remember your camera. To top off this tour we will go to one of the local vineyards where you will have a tour of the winery, a light lunch and of course all washed down with the winery's very own wine.

Board your coach in central Sorrento in the morning and settle in for your 1-hour journey to Vesuvius National Park.
After reaching the top of the crater, at an altitude of roughly 3,445 feet (1,050 meters), enjoy spectacular views of the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrento Peninsula and the islands of Capri and Ischia. Soak up the views, take photos, and then reboard your 4WD vehicle to journey down the mountain. Back amid the foothills of Mt Vesuvius, finish your day with a wine tasting at Le Cantine del Vesuvio winery. Stroll through the vineyards, learn about the winemaking process from a wine expert, and sit down to a leisurely lunch accompanied by a tasting of three of the estate's wines: a white, a red and a rosé.
After lunch, reboard your coach and relax on the drive back to Sorrento, arriving in the late afternoon.
