exc_image

Operates on Sunday with a duration of 8 hours approx.

After about 30 minutes drive you will arrive at Pompeii, the ancient Roman city destroyed tragically after the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in the year 79 B.C. You can admire all the structures typical of the Roman world as the main square or forum, baths, theatres, mansions with remains of frescoes, casts containing bones of Pompeians that died during the disaster. After the visit of the excavations, you will have free time for lunch on your own and then proceed for the visit of Herculaneum, the town comes down to us "frozen" by the eruption which allowed the conservation of wooden structures and small objects, better than has been conserved in Pompeii. Return to Sorrento in the afternoon. Tour duration: approximately 8 hours.
