Discover the legendary history of Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius on this excursion from Sorrento. Learn all about one of the most famous volcanic eruptions of all time and explore the preserved ancient Roman city.
Pompeii & Vesuvius Excursion Itinerary
After being picked up from your hotel in Sorrento, we'll set off for Pompei, the ancient Roman city that was buried under volcanic ash when Mount Vesuvius erupted in the year 79 AD.
Once we've arrived, we'll walk through its streets to see the buildings, decorations and resting places of its inhabitants. We'll see temples, the basilica, the forum and the city baths. These buildings are all so well preserved thanks to the fact that they were covered by the dust of the volcano.
Your excursion will then continue, heading next to Mount Vesuvius, a volcano that stands over 4,200 feet (1,200 metres) high. It's still considered to be one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world, and it's also the world's most populated volcanic region, with three million people living in its vicinity.
On your walk to the top, you'll see traces of lava from the last eruption. When you reach the summit you'll also enjoy breathtaking views of the Gulf of Naples.
We'll discuss the mythology surrounding the peak - does the name Hercules sound familiar to you? This legendary personality appears in several stories about Vesuvius.
At the end of your day trip to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius, we'll return to your hotel in Sorrento.
