The Best of Pompeii

One of the most famous UNESCO World Heritage Sites, this town was buried in ash and pumice when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD. But from this tragic event came a magic location where time has literally stood still, a perfectly preserved fossil record of ancient Roman life.

You’ll 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, truly absorb the lives of these Roman aristocrats and common villagers 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 homes of the ancient city’s most influential people, and see areas recently opened to the public 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. En route you’ll be entertained with tales of the area and its rich history as the preferred vacation spot for Roman Emperors.

Sample Some Delicious, Locally Produced Limoncello

After your 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.
