It is quite easy to organise your own trip to Pompei , Vesuviuis and Capri on your own. The trip to Rome is bit more difficult due to the distance involved. Search the Sorrento Forum regarding that trip.

To visit Pompei you get a local train from Sorrento station to Pompei Scavi station. The site is just down the road as you come out of the station. You can join an official guided group at the site by the Ticket Office for €10 per person for a 2 hour ten person group. After the tour you can wander around on your own there are refreshment facilities available on site.

To get to Vesuviuis there is a private company providing transport to the car park on site and return for €22 per person from outside the station at Pompei. From the car park you can walk as far as you wish up a dusty track to view the volcano crater. The view from the top is quite impressive.

For the trip to Capri go down to the Marina in Sorrento where there are booths selling tickets for sailings to Capri for around €18 each way. Once you are there you can if you wish take a small boat trip around part of the island with swimming from the boat, these trips are usually for a couple of hours. When you get back take the bus up to AnaCapri where there is a funicular with some great views from the highest point. Work your way down either walking or taking the bus to Capri Town and then back to the habour. Capri is quite small and does suffer from visitor overload during the summer months!

The nearest railway station for the Pompeii line is in Meta itself. If, as it can be at times, the station is unmanned buy your tickets from a local Tabacchi shop or maybe the hotel will have some. Here is link to the current timetable, the stop you need is Pompei S. Villa Misteri

Apart from the hotel shuttle service there is also a local bus service, stop outside the hotel, to the centre of Sorrento.
