What you will visit:

Pompeii
The eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. was a monumental natural disaster that killed thousands and entombed the city of Pompeii. A visit to this UNESCO World Heritage Site is an opportunity to view a moment in time preserved for more than 2,000 years in this lost city buried deep beneath the ash. Walk among the ruins that, in exquisite detail, paint a picture of daily Roman life. Known as a vacation community for high society, some of the ruins are remarkably preserved, with elaborately detailed mosaics and colorful frescoes decorating the interiors of wealthy homeowners' villas.
Sorrento (on your own)
The coastal town of Sorrento overlooks the Bay of Naples. Explore the cobblestone side streets and public squares, such as Piazza Tasso and Piazza Antiche Mura with its lively atmosphere. Sorrento is a prime place for shoppers and ambience seekers alike. The bustling Corso Italia, a flower-lined main boulevard, showcases charming cafes and designer boutiques. Stroll down to the picture-perfect Sorrento pier and take in the fresh sea breezes or go beachcombing along the rocky shoreline.

What you will see along the way:
From Naples, it's a 45-minute drive to Pompeii, where the distinctive outline of Mt. Vesuvius will come into view. The scenic drive between Pompeii and Sorrento is approximately one hour and takes in the breathtaking vistas along the Amalfi Coast and the Bay of Naples.
Lunch:
Lunch on your own in one of the many wonderful cafes and restaurants in Sorrento at various price points.

Special Notes:

Due to earlier closure of Pompeii excavations during the months of November and December, the visit of Sorrento will be made in the afternoon, and shops might be closed.

The drive from Naples to Sorrento takes approximately 1.5 hours; the drive from Sorrento to Pompeii takes approximately one hour.

Due to traffic restrictions of the Sorrento center, a short walk from the motorcoach drop-off point to the main center and vice versa will be required.

Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience.

For security reasons, large bags, backpacks and trolleys are not permitted inside Pompeii excavations. These large items can be left in the motorcoach. Lockers are not available.
