Overview

Step into the pages of your history book with a visit to the UNESCO heritage-listed site of Pompeii, on an action-packed day tour from Sorrento with hotel transfers and guide included. The thriving ancient Roman city was destroyed entirely after the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Explore the excavation site which was buried under volcanic debris for over 1600 years. Pompeii was once a bustling city with a huge theatre for gladiatorial fights, temples of worship, luxurious Roman villas decorated with brightly painted frescoes and marvelous mosaics and highly mechanised waterway systems.

Explore the shops, temples, public baths and houses that composed the thriving city and enjoy fascinating stories of ancient life and how it was decimated by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius.

See the Roman bakery, the Temple of Apollo, the Roman Forum, an ancient supermarket and an old cemetery. See the daunting plastic death casts of people who were caught in the eruption. Your guide will show you the Forum, Thermal Baths and Lupanare, the most famous brothel in Pompeii. .

The civilization of Pompeii is one of the most significant proofs of the Roman civilization and provides outstanding information on the art, customs, trades and everyday life of the past.
