No trip to Italy is complete without a visit to Pompeii. If you've already traveled as far as Rome, leave the details to us while you sit back, enjoy the ride and journey back in time for a once in a lifetime experience!
Meet your driver at a convenient meeting point in the heart of Rome (details will be provided upon reservation). Once seated comfortably we depart for Pompeii, the once prosperous Roman city which met it's fate in October, AD 79 when Mt. Vesuvius erupted and the entire surrounding area and population was engulfed with burning pyroclastic flow and covered in ash. What you will see is a moment of terror frozen in time, death postures and ruins unchanged from almost 2,000 years ago. Your expert archaeologist guide will walk you through the ancient streets, whereabouts perfectly conserved ancient bakeries, shops, stalls, private and communal residences, public baths and brothels remain. You will see plaster casts of the unfortunate Pompeiians who were immortalized on that tragic day.
Upon conclusion of the guided tour, we make our way to scenic Sorrento. Enjoy once-in-a-lifetime views of the Tyrrhenian Sea and picture postcard perfect towns nestled into steep white limestone cliffs.
A stop will be made en route to sample Limoncello, a world-renowned specialty liquor made by local artisans from the organic lemons which can only be harvested in this region. At this point you will be able to purchase a bottle or two to take home (or have it shipped) before enjoying a bite to eat and some free time to wander around the shops and take in the remarkable overlooks of Sorrento.
As your afternoon winds down, you'll join your driver once again for the return journey to Rome.
Complimentary cold beverages and wifi will be available during travel time.
