Experience a unique blend of scenic beauty and tragic history during this scenic and memorable visit to the ancient city of Pompeii.
Depart the pier for the transfer via mini-bus to the main square of Sorrento. From here, you will board a coach for the drive along the Sorrento coast, past the Bay of Naples and on to the remarkable ruins of Pompeii at the foot of Mount Vesuvius.
Pompeii is considered to be the world's finest example of an ancient Roman town. Upon arrival, you will see the huge forum and great temples, and have an opportunity to peer inside homes and shops suspended in time by the devastating eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.
Leaving Pompeii, you will return to the coast along the lovely panoramic road that passes by the seaside resorts of Castellamare and Sorrento as you make your way back to the pier.
Please note: Mini-buses will be used to transfer guests from the pier to the motor coach parking lot and vice versa. The drive between Sorrento and Pompeii is approximately 1 hour in each direction. In the event of heavy highway traffic, the overall length of the tour may be extended. This tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility or guests who utilize a wheelchair.
