Guided Tour of Pompeii & free time in Sorrento
  • Once you've met your private driver, head out of Rome and onto Pompeii!
  • This once prosperous and thriving city was frozen in time in October of 79 BCE when Mount Vesuvius erupted and preserved the city in the middle of a normal day by pyroclastic flow and heavy volcanic ash.
  • Meet the archaeologist that will be guiding you through one of the most important sites in the world and take a spin through the past and learn more about what Pompeii looked like before the volcano erupted.
  • Then you'll move out into the city as it is, strolling through the streets as you witness this tragedy that took place so long ago.
  • Visit ancient bakeries and market stalls, communal residences and public baths, and private homes and brothels were stopped in their tracks, examining the plaster casts of unfortunate people that were immortalized on this horrific day.
  • Once you've finished in Pompeii, drive along the curling coast that overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea and picturesque towns that sit along the plunging limestone cliffs.
  • Arrive in the town known as the Gateway to the Amalfi Coast and stop at Giggino, the region's oldest pizzeria to sample slices by the meter that have been cooked the same way for 100 years.
  • Take some free time to explore the city, and be sure to stop at a bottega to sample the local limoncello, a specialty artisanal liquor made from the organic lemons that originate in this area, and maybe ship some home.
  • Wander and enjoy the scenic views of Sorrento, stopping at shops and markets along the way, before you rejoin your driver and return to Rome.
19:30 - Drop off at Rome
  • You will be dropped off at the same location you were picked up from.
