Pompeii and Sorrento private tour

tour description

The first stop of this special private tour of Pompeii and Sorrento will be exploring the fantastic site of ancient Pompeii with its ruins. Pompeii is one of the best preserved archaeological sites in the world. The ancient Roman city was buried under a layer of ash and lava due to a terrible eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD. Excavations began in 1748 but still continue to this day and they have uncovered the site as it is today, one of the best testimonies of Roman life. The archaeological site is visited each year by millions of tourists from all over the world and is the third most visited archaeological site in Italy.
After the visit of about 2 - 2 1/2 hours at the Pompeii ruins, our day tour continues to Sorrento, the heart of the Sorrento peninsula.
In Sorrento, we will drive along a fantastic scenic road where the blue of the sea and the rocky ridge of the peninsula will open before your eyes in an exceptional and incomparable panorama of rare beauty. Small villages perched on the rocks, pebble beaches and creeks, the fantastic Gulf of Naples with Mount Vesuvius dominating it, will become the most beautiful photo shoots of your holiday in Italy which you will do frequently during the Private tour to Pompeii and Sorrento organized by My Positano Limo.
