If you are visiting Sorrento, don’t miss this must-do tour which takes you to the centuries-old city of Pompeii, forever frozen in time, and formidable Mount Vesuvius - the only active volcano in mainland Europe!
High on the list of the Wonders of the World, Pompeii holds a fascination for visitors of all ages and from all walks of life, and for good reason.
In 79AD, the people of the wealthy commercial city of Pompeii were beginning their day when nearby volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted, virtually without warning.
The resulting plume of ash and river of lava preserved the city as it was all those centuries ago...
Excavations began at Pompeii in the 18th century, and continue to this day.
During your exceptional guided tour of Pompeii, you’ll walk along the ancient streets lined with baths, villas and forums belonging to the wealthy Romans inhabitants.
You’ll see the many fabulously preserved frescoes which adorned the floors and walls of prestigious villas, and the pottery and coinage with them.
Following your Pompeii tour, you’ll move on to Mount Vesuvius which overlooks the beautiful Bay of Naples.
You’ll travel by coach to within 1,000 metres of the summit of the only active volcano in mainland Europe, from where you can walk to the very top and look down on the blackened crater, a view which offers a stark reminder that this ancient giant is only sleeping.
Please Note: Entrance into Pompeii’s ruins and Vesuvius are not included with your ticket.
