This is our most popular private tour outside Rome! See ruined Pompeii before a lovely lunch and relaxed walk in scenic Sorrento.
20 participants maximum
Our luxury air conditioned vehicle will pick you up from your city centre hotel. If you are staying outside the city centre, you must meet us at the central departure point (see confirmation e-mail for details). We head south to Campania, stopping for a cappuccino and cornetto before arriving in Pompeii at c. 10:30 AM.
It is said that the best guides of Pompeii mock the imperious air of Rome’s finest docents. The archaeological complexities of Pompeii are particularly taxing but you’ll be in good company. Regard the casts of men, women, children, and animals. Death postures captured forever. Walk through the spectacular ruins in the shadow of Vesuvius and learn why the city was overcome so quickly, and why so many inhabitants perished almost immediately. Vulcanologists warn that Vesuvius will erupt again this century, and the three million inhabitants who would be displaced by such a catastrophic event will probably flee to Rome.
Once your private and exclusive tour of Pompeii has concluded, you’ll be escorted to the beautiful town of Sorrento, gateway to the Amalfi coast. Previous clients have remarked that they witnessed the most beautiful coastline in Europe, and it’s hard to disagree. Views from Sorrento are unforgettable. After Neapolitan pizza and wine (not included in tour cost), you’ll have plenty of time to stretch your legs. Explore and enjoy the pretty local shops, and taste favourite tipples like Limoncello after indulging in one or more irresistible pastries. At 16:00 PM you will return to your vehicle and depart Sorrento for Rome.
