Enjoy a fantastic day tour exploring Pompeii and tasting delicious wine!

You will stop in Pompeii, one of the most important archaeological sites in the World! The dramatic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius on August 24, 79 A.D. destroyed this flourishing city and left it frozen in time. You will walk down its old streets and see millennia-old houses, temples, shops, cafes, amphitheatres, and even a brothel.

You will have the chance to hike up Mt. Vesuvius and enjoy the unmatched views of the area from the top. The cone stays roughly 4200 feet high, but however far you will venture up you will be able to see the entire Gulf of Naples, from Sorrento to Capo Miseno, to Procida & Ischia. 

You will stop in one of the vineyards located on the slopes of Vesuvius where the wine making tradition dates back to the Romans that used to produce the “Vesuvinum” here. You will taste some of the locally produced wines (usually the tasting includes 4 different kinds of wine) accompanied by a light lunch. Lunch will include some starters that can vary from bruschette, cured meats or vegetables, followed by a main dish which usually includes a type of pasta with the local tomato sauce and either a dessert or a cheese tasting depending on location and availability.

Please Note: Entrance tickets for Mt. Vesuvius are not included and must be purchased ahead of time.

"We actually did not get to do this tour, as it was the first day of the pandemic shutdown. However, the driver did a great job making the best of the situation with a drive to Sorrento and around Naples. The company also refunded us a fair amount since the trip had to be cancelled. Wish we could have done the full tour, but everything worked out pretty well in the end"

Had the most amazing experience working with Anna from Joe Banana's. We arranged a multiple day multiple experience tour with them along the Amalfi coast, including private transfers, hikes, and private boat tours. Anna was responsive, attentive, and kind. The Bout tours were incredible as was the path of gods hike, wine tasting in Pompeii and pizza lunch in Naples. The Drivers were friendly and safe. Will definitely work with them again and recommend to my family and friends


Driver Bruno was wonderful and such fun! Guide Paulo was extremely knowledgeable, fun and the pace was in line with our capabilities . Would definitely give them A plus plus and highly recommend!


This was an amazing tour. Our driver, Bruno, was very helpful and always ready to answer questions. Our first stop was in Pompeii and we had a 3rd generation tour guide, Chiro, who was excellent and so knowledgeable. Next we stopped at a vineyard for lunch had some of the best food we had the entire trip. Finally, we hiked up Mt. Vesuvius with the tickets Joe Banana's had gotten ahead of time for us. The guest ambassador, Maria, was really helpful and easy to connect with via Whatsapp. I highly recommend going with this company.


Our Joe Banana tour was fantastic. Milena arranged an amazing day for us visiting Pompei and Mt Vesuvius. Our driver, Stefano, was friendly, drove carefully and the vehicle was in great condition. Could not have asked for a better person to spend our day with. Our tour guide in Pompei was incredibly knowledgeable and interacted really well with our kids. The wine tasting / lunch spot that Milena arranged for us was great. We had a beautiful lunch on the mountain side and spent time chatting with the family who owned the vineyard. Lastly, I would highlight that the team was super accommodating. We somehow missed our train in the morning and arrived 2 hours late but the team scrambled to rearrange our day and it still turned out amazing!
