Guide was very knowledgable and passionate about all aspects of the tour. Highly recommended.
Do not miss the chance to explore two of the most famous archaeological sites in Italy: Hercolanum and Pompeii, with this day tour departing from Sorrento.
This small group tour will begin in Sorrento, where a luxury minibus will be waiting for you to start your discovery of two wonderful Italian realities, situated in Campania, one of its most beautiful regions. We are referring to two of the most popular archaeological sites in the whole world: Ercolano and Pompeii.
As soon as you are ready, a luxury minibus will drive you from Sorrento to Ercolano, where an expert guide will lead you through a two-hour visit of this archaeological site. Ercolano, that legends say was founded by Ercole, and that has been destroyed by the 79 D.C. eruption, has been declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Going through its excavations is an experience that will make you live the glory of the past.
After having walked through the wonderful Ercolano, get ready to be amazed again by the second stop of your tour: Pompeii. Here, before beginning your guided tour through the wonders of the ancient city, you will taste a delicious lunch composed by all the exquisiteness of the Campania tradition. Among these, you will find caprese (the typical dish made by mozzarella and fresh tomatoes), pizza or pasta, fries, ice cream, local wine and, to conclude, an inimitable Italian espresso. After this typical Italian experience, you can’t miss a walk through the excavations, surrounded by ancient villas, buildings, temples, the amphitheatre, and the thermal baths of Pompeii. An unforgettable experience!
Before heading back to Sorrento, this Small Group Tour has another surprise waiting for you: a guided visit into the Villa of the Mysteries, a suburban villa whose construction dates back to the Roman Era. It is situated at a small distance from Pompeii’s entrance walls, and was buried by the Mount Vesuvius eruption as well. It has a rustic, residential style, and is rich of frescoes representing mystic rituals, in addition to paintings in red mainly showing bridal scenes and religious rituals. Diving into these mysteries is a unique experience that makes ancient customs come back to life.
