Discover the legendary history of Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius on this day trip from Sorrento. Learn all about one of the most famous volcanic eruptions of all time and explore the preserved ancient Roman city.
Pompeii and Vesuvius Day Trip Itinerary
After being picked up from your hotel in Sorrento, you'll head in the direction of Pompeii, the ancient Roman city that was buried under volcanic ash when Mount Vesuvius erupted in the year 79 AD. Wandering through the streets of the former metropolis, you'll see an incredible snapshot of what life was like in Ancient Rome.
Discover the splendour of the historic city, well-preserved by the ash for over 2000 years. Temples, the basilica, the forum, the public baths and even the remains of the people who lived there have been frozen in time. Plaster casts of the victims reflect the terror they experienced in the eruption.
Your day trip will then continue, heading next to Mount Vesuvius, a volcano of over 4200 feet (1200 m) in height. It is still considered to be one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world, and is the most populated volcanic region in the world, with three million people living in its vicinity. Hear about 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 excursion to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius, you'll return to your hotel in Sorrento.
