Journey Plan

The tour will start from Sorrento, as it's a private trip you will decide the pick up address from your hotel or any address in Sorrento or nearby Sorrento's town. You will travel with an air-conditioned luxury sedan car or minivan driven by a professional english speaking local driver that can introduce you the history and main sights that you will see during your trip.

The first stop will be at Pompeii there you will have about 2 hours to visit the ancient city of Pompeii, famous as the city that lay buried beneath mounds of volcanic ash after the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. We can also provide an expert guide that will walk with you  and will provide a historic commentary about the ruins, telling a terrible tale of the day it was destroyed, and bringing the remarkable site back to life.

Then there is the stop for a lunch in the winery, you will proceed to visit an enchanting property found on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. A short walk through the vineyards will be followed by a delicious meal made with typical local products found in the region. To accompany the lunch guests will be able to sample the famous red wine: Lachryma Christi.

After you lunch we will drive to Herculaneum, where unlike Pompeii, covered by a layer of lapillus and ashes, Herculaneum was submerged by a thick layer of lava and mud that preserved it all, sealing everything.

The day trip will end by driving you back to Sorrento, on the road you can admire other great view of Sorrento's coast.
