By a private bus reserved to the participants of the ITT conference, you will leave from the Hotel Hilton in Sorrento to Pompeii: here you will meet your professional guide who will take you to explore the remains of the ancient Roman town, beautifully preserved over the centuries thanks to the volcanic materials that submerged it up 10 meters.Visiting private homes, markets, baths and the main buildings of Pompeii you will have the opportunity to make a real journey through time, in a place where everything stopped at that catastrophic morning in 79 AD.
After lunch, you will reach the park of Vesuvius, where you will meet your guide who will accompany you along a breathtaking nature trail. Going up the Vesuvius, surrounded by greenery and unspoiled air, you will reach the top of the imposing volcano, where you can admire the enormous crater and terrific views of the Gulf of Naples.
