You'll begin your day by being picked up at your accommodation and enjoying a panoramic 2-hour drive along the roads of the Tyrrhenian coast. Once you get to Pompeii, a private art historian guide will help you discover what is considered Europe's most important archaeological site. This Unesco World Heritage site was once a seaside resort and party-town for ancient Romans until the Vesuvius erupted on April day in 79 AD, burying the city, seaside and surrounding the whole area in volcanic ash. Pompeii’s artifacts and remaining frescoes, mosaics, and structures give us an incredible insight into what life was like during the late Republic and early Roman Empire.
Once your tour of Pompei is over you'll get back on your airconditioned vehicle for an hour-long drive along the beautiful Gulf of Naples. In Sorrento, you'll have some free time to explore or have lunch. The driver and tour assistant will be happy to suggest some of the best and most well-known restaurants in the area. Sorrento is a small picturesque town, known for its colored buildings, its high-quality handcrafted products and its spectacular views across the bay of Naples and Mt. Vesuvius. At the end of the day, the driver will take you to a bar to enjoy a delicious limoncello tasting with local pastries.
