With the Pompeii & Sorrento Day Trip: From Rome, you are covering one of the most stunning historical sites in the world, and also one of the most beautiful parts of Italy. Our driver will collect you from Rome, and after a ride down the "Highway of the Sun", you will reach Pompeii. This is where you will meet your expert local guide who will walk you through the remarkably preserved remains of this Ancient metropolis.
This rare and beautiful archeological site just south of Naples that was covered or ‘flash frozen’ by 13 – 20 feet (4-6 meters) of ash and pumice by the catastrophic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79AD, often times referred to as Julius Caesar’s revenge! Our guide will wake this dormant city up for you, and the incredible remains of a city devoured by one of the most peculiar natural disasters ever, will come alive.
After you are finished exploring Pompeii, still gathering your impressions on this lost city, our driver will collect you and bring you down the winding roads of the beautiful Italian coast, all the way down to Sorrento. You will have time to leisurely explore the center of this charming coastal gem, have a typical local lunch and enjoy a coffee, gelato or a limoncello in some of it’s historical restaurant and bar venues. You don't know what limoncello is? Well in that case, you couldn't have picked a better destination to visit on this day!
With this day trip, our driver will collect you from your accommodation in Rome, and bring you back at the end of the day. They will stay with you throughout the day, bringing you from location to location, thus making this highly unlikely day possible for you!
How many times in your life will you be able to say that you walked through an almost perfectly preserved ancient city that was destroyed by a disastrous volcano eruption? We are guessing not too many, that’s why we offer this awesome experience of a lifetime.
