Full description
Travel from Sorrento, along the scenic route out of the Sorrento Coast, turning off the motorway at Pompeii. The journey is approximately 45 minutes from Sorrento to Pompeii. Accompanied by the guide, you'll explore the main features of the ancient city including the baths, bakeries and much more.

Pompeii holds an intense fascination for visitors today. Following the eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius in the 79 A.D., Pompeii lay buried and forgotten for hundreds of years. The town is high on the list of the wonders of the world, and the excavations begun in the 18th century still continues to this day.

Your guide will take you through some of the ancient streets of Pompeii, where you can see baths, forums and villas built by the prosperous Romans in the year 80 B.C. Marvel at the fabulously preserved frescoes which adorned the walls and floors of the villas. Even if your interests do not lie in history, this is an archaeological site that cannot fail to impress you.
