Day trips in and around Sorrento

Jump to last reply

Hello again from Australia,

Over the course of our 8-week trip to Europe, I have booked a few day trips through Viator because they covered what we wanted to do and were good value for money.
This is not the case, however, for trips around Sorrento - in particular, we are looking to spend a day sightseeing on the island of Capri and another day looking around Pompeii and Herculaneum.

The Capri tour departs from Naples, not Sorrento, and is quite expensive.
There is a 3-hour tour of Pompeii but does not include Herculaneum.

So, my question is:

Can you please advise how we can do both of these itineraries independently?

We have no car so will be travelling by train / bus (and of course hydrofoil to Capri). We would like to see Pompeii and Herculaneum on the same day but don't mind if this will take 7 or 8 hours.

On Capri, if possible, we would like to see Capri Town, AnaCapri and take the tour of the Blue Grotto.

Can you please give some indication on how long each of our planned activities should take (including transport etc) and also roughly how much these day trips would cost?

Again, thanks in advance for all you helpful posters.

Regards,

Steve
