What To Expect
Blanketed by volcanic ash for centuries, ancient Pompeii was remarkably well preserved when it was discovered, and as kept archaeologists and visitors enthralled ever since. During your 2-hour tour, you’ll learn about the Mt. Vesuvius eruption of AD 79, which buried the town, and see the ruins that hark back to ancient times.
Explore the alleyways of the old commercial center, and stand before the remains of monuments such as the Temple of Jovis, Macellum (market), and public baths.
After your Pompeii tour, enjoy some free time for lunch (own expense). Then, depart for your journey to Herculaneum, another city buried by the AD 79 eruption.
Many believe the Herculaneum ruins are better preserved than those at Pompeii, as the town was encased in mud and lava. Wander amid the ruins on an hour-long tour, and enjoy some free time to explore at leisure. Highlights include intricate mosaics, a gymnasium, and residential houses.
Afterward, travel back to Sorrento at around 4pm-5pm.
