If you booked a last-minute trip to Italy and are looking to take a budget friendly day trip from Naples, look no further! Enjoy this day trip filled with history, coastal views, and delicious Italian street food.

11:30-12:30 Naples Food Tour

Naples is famous for their street food. Book a tasting tour or just roam on your own as you sample Sfogliatelle, a warm and sweet Neapolitan dessert, fried pizza, folded pizza, and fried and stuffed pasta. Don’t forget to make a mandatory coffee stop for some of Italy’s finest espressos and people watching! The street food scene in Naples is nothing short of amazing.

1-4 Pm- Ferry from Naples to Sorento

Next, head to Sorrento where you can revel in the views of the Italian coast. Head to beach, explore the town, and drink plenty of Aperol and Spritzes! Wander the narrow streets as you explore lemon groves and. trees and sample the city’s famous limoncello liquor.

4-7pm – Tour of Pompeii

Book a tour from Sorrento to Pompeii either by coach bus, or by train. Often times professional tour guides wait outside Pompeii waiting to give you an expert tour from a local historian. Take them up on it and walk the streets of Pompeii as you revel in its historical significance. Head back in time as you explore the cobblestoned streets. We put Pompeii as the last part of your day, for the chances of catcing the beautiful historic ruins at sunset. Mount Vesuvius, the volcano that erupted and destroyed the city thousands of years prior, is haunting at golden hour.
