Private Day Trip from Sorrento to discover the Unesco World Heritage sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii in the natural wonders of the Bay of Naples.

Enjoy the visit of Herculaneum and Pompeii, the two Roman cities buried by eruption of the Vesuvius in the morning of the August 24th 79 AD, and appreciate the beauties of these two archeological sites with your private and expert guide and with the comfort of your personal driver.

Your private day tour to visit Herculaneum and Pompeii begins with your driver meeting you in the lobby of your hotel in Sorrento, you sit down and in a comfortable way the driver takes you to the archaeological sites to return to Sorrento in the late afternoon.

At the archeological sites you will meet your personal guide for your visit with skip the line tickets to avoid long queues.

Pompeii and Herculaneum were covered with stone and volcanic mud when Mount Vesuvius erupted in the year 79 A.D. and remaining covered until the 18th century, when a farmer discovered some ruins, then certified as the ruins of Pompeii, while digging in his vineyards.

Thanks to the volcanic ash, Pompeii and Herculaneum are exceptionally well preserved and offer visitors a true understanding of what life was like during the Roman Empire.

Visiting Pompeii you can see the theaters, the temples, the private villas of the rich with their exquisite frescoes and the quarters of the servants, the wine shops, the bakeries and the public baths.

The tour begins with a visit to Pompeii, a city of approximately 20,000 inhabitants, whose eruption covered in 30 feet of volcanic ash and helped preserve it exactly as it was.
In Pompeii your guide takes you to visit the most important highlights: The Forum which was the center of religious and economic life. The Casa del Fauno, one of the largest and most impressive private residences in Pompeii. The Termopolium a sort of ancient inns where foreigners arriving in Pompeii could eat and buy wine. The plaster casts of the inhabitants of Pompeii victims of the ashes and volcanic gases. The wall paintings and frescoes of Pompeii houses.

A pause for a light lunch (payable locally) and your tour takes you to Herculaneum.

The remains of the Roman “Herculaneum” lie within the area of modern Ercolano, north of Pompeii and south of Naples.

The ruins at Herculaneum are well preserved and much smaller than those at Pompeii, so it is very possible to walk through the entire excavation and see all the highlights.

In the contrast to the mostly single-story buildings of Pompeii, here in Herculaneum the private houses and public buildings were with two or even three floors with a great use of wood in doors, staircases, beams and shutters.

Wearing comfortable walking shoes is suggested.
