Does your ship arrive to Naples or Salerno harbor and you would do a day tour to visit the most beautiful places in Campania? This is the perfect tour for you: in one day you can visit the archaeological sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum (way back included!).
Our day trip is the perfect choice for those who arrive by cruise/ship at the port of Naples or Sorrento: our pick-up service with private car/minivan will pick you up directly at the harbor and takes you to visit two archaeological sites of great importance: Pompeii and Herculaneum. At the end of the tour, you will be driven back to the port or at your hotel in Sorrento or Naples.
The first half of the tour will be at Pompeii, frozen during time as a result of the tragic eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD that submerged the entire city up to 10 feet with volcanic materials. You can visit the ruins of Roman shops, spas, gyms, brothels and other ancient buildings, miraculously preserved over the centuries, discovering amazing evidences found in the area.
Herculaneum, just like Pompeii, was a Roman city that disappeared due to the same eruption. In this case, however, the mud layer of the volcano was so plentiful even to protect it better both from raiders of the treasures and atmospheric agents. You will visit the spacious houses, shrines, baths and villas of rich Romans in the region, beautifully decorated with frescos and mosaics.
At the end of the tour, you will go back to your hotel or the port (Naples or Sorrento, depending on your requirement) to board on your ship.
