Pompeii and Sorrento Tour
On this day trip with Italy’s Best, you’ll have the opportunity to sip Limoncello before exploring the ancient ruins of Pompeii, the city frozen in time. Experience southern Italian life in the seaside town of Sorrento. Your local expert guide will take you for a walk through its lemon-scented streets and provide you with an overview of this storied seaside town. Famous for its limoncello, during your Sorrento tour you’ll learn how to make this world-renown lemon liquor then have the opportunity to taste some before heading to your next destination: Pompeii.
Mount Vesuvius’ infamous eruption in 79 A.D. wiped out the city of Pompeii and 16,000 inhabitants in minutes. Today, with a history of eruptions throughout the centuries and its close proximity to a population of three million, the active volcano is considered one of the world’s most dangerous, yet beautiful attractions. Your private guide from Italy’s Best will lead you through Pompeii’s archaeological sites. See first-hand the remains from the calamitous eruption including the House of the Tragic Poet with its elaborate mosaic floors, the town Basilica and Temple of Apollo as well as the plaster casts of those killed during the eruption, their bodies captured in motion as they tried to outrun the lava. Leading you away from the crowds, your guide will show you some of the lesser-visited areas including the cemetery, the baths and a brothel. Following the tour, explore on your own or shop for souvenirs before meeting your driver and returning to your accommodations.
