What to Expect
Explore one of the most popular archeological sites in the world at UNESCO-listed Pompeii and admire the beauty of Sorrento on this private full-day minivan tour from Rome.
Pompeii is an extraordinary testimony of the ancient world that can be appreciated today, having been preserved by ash and remaining nearly intact after the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D.
From the middle of the 700s, digs funded by the Bourbons and pursued for over a century brought the city to light and provided a complete picture of daily life in Roman times.
Follow the path that winds down the streets lined with houses and shops. See public monuments, including the amphitheater. Visit private houses that retain a luxurious look with their elegant frescoes and marble decoration.
You’ll also have the opportunity to explore the lovely town of Sorrento and browse the many shops before your return trip to Rome.
