A Taste Of Pompeii And Sorrento

Offer Image
Explore the UNESCO archeological site of Pompeii and visit Sorrento, the small village perfectly situated looking out over the Bay of Naples, Mount Vesuvius, and the Isle of Capri. It is hard to imagine a more perfect setting as you explore what may be the most stunning stretch of coastline in the world.

A Taste of Pompeii and Sorrento

Depart from Naples on a short drive to reach Pompeii, a UNESCO heritage site, the most visited roman site after the Colosseum in Rome.

Meet your local and knowledgeable tour guide and learn how everything you see is intact and brought back to life after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D.

Archaeological excavations continue today, and you will see houses, shops, squares, brothels and even entire human figures preserved over time thanks to the lava of Vesuvius' eruption. Roman architecture is showcased in the marvelous villas, the most famous of Villa dei Misteri, and in public buildings such as the Forum, the Macellum (Market) and the Amphitheater.

After approximately 2 hours of your guided tour inside the ruins, enjoy a pizza lunch in a typical restaurant and then depart for Sorrento and a drive along the famed Amalfi Coast.

Along the way you will admire the suggestive medieval castle from which the name of the famous town Castellammare di Stabia comes from. You will also see small and enchanting beaches such as Vico Equense and Seiano and the typical Mediterranean vegetation full of lemon and orange trees. Stop at the panoramic viewpoint in Meta di Sorrento to look over the wonderful sight of the bay and looking out to sea.

Finally, make your way to Sorrento for a short visit of the town. Be provided a guide who will show you the most renowned places as you walk through the narrow alleys and streets full of stores and little workshops. View one of the most scenic places in Sorrento, the Villa Comunale, from where it is possible to admire the beauty of the Gulf as far as Punta Campanella and Capri Island.

You will end the day with a dramatic coastline drive back to Naples and your ship and leave with memories to last a lifetime.
