Rome to Pompeii Tour

In Rome, meet your driver and tour leader in a designated spot to begin the drive down the Autostrada del Sole (Highway of the Sun) to the arrival in the buried city of Pompeii. This is where you'll meet your personal archeologist, who will walk you through the remarkably well-preserved remains of this Ancient metropolis.

Guided Tour of Pompeii 

Just south of Naples, this rare and beautiful archeological site was covered or "flash frozen" by 13 – 20 feet (4-6 meters) of ash and pumice by the catastrophic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Frozen in time by volcanic ash, this ancient city stands apart from any other place in Italy. Led by your professional guide, experience this ancient city and see how these well-preserved structures and all the evidence of daily life inside reveals secrets about Roman civilization. The city sat undisturbed for almost 2,000 years. Then, in 1748, a group of explorers discovered that beneath the volcanic ash, the city was still mostly intact.  As a result, we now have an unparalleled snapshot of life in the prosperous ancient city. 

Experience Sorrento

After you've finished exploring Pompeii, our driver will collect the group and start traveling down the gorgeous winding roads of the Italian coast, along the Gulf of Naples, and onto Sorrento. From here, take some time to leisurely explore the center of this charming coastal gem, enjoy a typical local lunch* and indulge in a new flavor of gelato or some famous limoncello! If you've already tried the original limoncello, ask for different variations instead such as Nocillo, Finochietto or Arancello. Then, after a long day of sightseeing, culture and history, head back to the mini-coach, sit back and relax on the scenic drive back to the Eternal City.
