Itinerary

Sorrento

To reach the international town of Sorrento you need to drive the coastal road to its furthest point. Spectacular views of the entire bay of Naples and the Island of Capri (that was once joined to Sorrento) are revealed as the Amalfi coast road emerges from over the mountain cliff. A short drive through the town before you arrive in the centre of a major shopping mall for the local people as well as tourists, with many shops (normally open all day, everyday in the summer, but during the low season they open between 9:00am – 1:00pm, then 4:00pm – 8:00pm, approximately). Sorrento seemed to inherit the traditional Neapolitan pizza from their neighboring city, therefore the Pizzeria’s in town are highly recommended. Sorrento, also being a city from the past, has an interesting history museum Correale di Terranova that can be visited in the morning.

Pompeii

The ruins of Pompeii, part of an ancient Roman city destroyed and buried by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A.D. can be visited during this tour. The remainder of the uncovered city is today buried under the new Pompeii rebuilt many years subsequent to the eruption. Archeological excavations are open to the public between the hours of 09:00 and 18:00 every day of the week, guides can be hired at the entrance or headphones can be rented, voicing explanations of the sites. Please note that since Pompeii is a popular area for tourists, we strongly recommend being cautious of your belongings!

Herculaneum

Herculaneum is an ancient residential town of Greek origins, destroyed and buried in ashes, together with Pompeii, by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A.D. that also offers a variety of beautiful scenery and invaluable arts. Excavations began by accident in 1709 when some workers were digging a well – they discovered a wall which was later found to be one of the stages of the ancient theatre. Later, there were many human skeletons uncovered at the ancient shoreline, suggesting that numerous inhabitants attempted to escape but perished when mountains collapsed and volcanic gases were released.
