Description

What better way to combine history and leisure than with our specially crafted Pompeii and Sorrento tours from Naples including the wonders of Pompeii and the zesty allure of Sorrento, the gateway to the Amalfi Coast. This unique combo day tour offers an unforgettable perspective into just how culturally rich the Bay of Naples actually is.

Meet your guide in central Naples and hop aboard a private coach for a short jaunt over to the world famous ruins of Pompeii. Witness how time has stood still at this UNESCO World Heritage Site unparalleled to anything else on Earth, as you step back into history on a 2-hour fully-guided tour of the most fascinating archaeological site in Italy. A miraculously haunting place to visit, you’ll truly absorb the lives of these Roman patricians and townspeople before they met their untimely and dreadful demise.

Explore the well-preserved fossils buried beneath ash for centuries, marvel at the multicolored mosaics still lining the Domus (homes of the ancient city’s most influential people), and see areas just newly opened to the public and still decorated with frescoes of animals, gods and landscapes. We’ll then take a short break for coffee and a bit of shopping among local vendors before we continue on to Sorrento which overlooks the beautiful azure waters of the Bay of Naples. On the way, you’ll be entertained with tales of the area and its rich history as the preferred vacation spot for Roman Emperors.

In Sorrento, you’ll have ample time to explore on your own. Your local expert guide will provide you with suggestions on places to visit, things to see and the best shops and cafés to patron so you enjoy the most the seaside city has to offer. Amble down ancient alleys, relax in picturesque gardens, take a postcard-worthy panoramic of the bay, the choice is entirely up to you.

After your individual exploration you’ll rejoin your guide and the group for a taste of Southern Italy’s most delectable liqueur, Limoncello. You’ll learn how it is produced in one of Sorrento’s oldest shops and see the local ingredients that make this lemony libation so unique.

We head back to Naples in the late afternoon allowing you plenty of time to relax and enjoy the evening. We’re the only tour operator that offers this unique combination of history and leisure. That’s the difference between a quick visit and the full Italian experience.

Claudio was knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. He really went above and beyond - one of the group wanted to do some shopping and he walked her to the shopping area while the rest of the group was having lunch. I would highly recommend him as a tour guide.
