Private Tour Description
Prepare for a tour in the name of history and nature, where you will admire the ancient city of Pompeii and climb to the top of the most famous volcano in the world: the Vesuvius.
Pick up directly from your hotel or the indicated meeting point and from there we will reach Pompeii after a 30-minute journey during which you will admire the beautiful Sorrento Coast.
Nowadays Pompeii holds an intense fascination for visitors since, following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the year 79 A.D., it laid buried and forgotten for hundreds of years.
The town is among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites and the excavations, which began in the 18th century, are still being carried out today.
Our guide will take you slowly through some of the ancient streets of Pompeii where you will see Baths, Forums and Villas built by the prosperous Romans in the year 80 B.C. and marvel at the fabulously preserved Frescos which adorn the walls and floors of the villas.
You will visit some of the places on the following itinerary: Amphitheatre - Palestra - Casa dei Fuggiaschi - Casa del Menandro - Teatro Grande e Piccolo - Palestra dei Gladiatori - Terme Stabiesi - Lupanare - Il Faro - Casa dei Vetti - Casa del Fauno - Casa del Poeta Tragico - Villa dei Misteri.
After exploring the archaeological site of Pompeii with our English-speaking guides for 2 hours and after some free time for lunch, we will continue our tour towards Mount Vesuvius, the volcano which dominates the Gulf of Naples.
Its slopes were once covered in vineyards and woods and provided an innocent looking backdrop for the bustling town below. The coach will take you within 1.000 metres of the top of Vesuvius and from there you can walk to the very top and admire the splendid panoramic views across the bay.
The return to Sorrento is expected in the afternoon.
