When you are in Italy, a day-long guided tour combining Pompeii and Sorrento will add an unforgettable experience to your travel diary. Travel enthusiasts say a trip to Italy is incomplete without a visit to Pompeii. So, be a spectator of the city immortalized by the eruption of volcanic Mt. Vesuvius. Sorrento, the outstanding coastal town in southwestern Italy is blessed with the natural beauty you simply can’t miss to pay a visit.
Leave Rome in a luxurious Mercedes van for Pompeii. The people of this city had met their destiny on 25 August 79 AD, a day the entire population got buried in burning pyroclastic flow and got covered in ash due to the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. You’ll face a moment of dread, stuck in time with people in their dying posture and remnants that are unchanged for almost 2000 years. Your archaeological expert guide will provide insights about the remnants of ancient streets, conserved ancient bakeries, stalls, shops, private and communal residences, public baths and brothels.
After finishing your guided tour, you will be taken to the gateway of the sensational Amalfi Coast. Enjoy a lifetime view of the Tyrrhenian Sea and a perfectly picturesque town nestled in steep, white limestone cliffs. On your way, you will stop to taste the delicious pizza at the most historic pizzeria ‘Pizza by the meter’ where a family has been baking authentic Neapolitan pizzas for more than 100 years.
Get free time in Sorrento to cruise around, gaze at the outstanding sea views, explore the art shops and boutiques. You will be able to taste Limoncello, well-renowned liquor made by local artisans using an organic lemon which is only harvested in this region. At the end of the afternoon, you will start your return journey to Rome.
