Sorrento Break

Duration
4 Days
Prices From:
US$ 998

Combine the delights of the Amalfi Coast with the splendour of the former Roman Empire on this historic Sorrento break. Visit Pompeii and the mountain that destroyed it, as well as the superbly preserved Herculaneum.


This 4-day southern Italy tour bases you in Sorrento, one of the most charming spots on the Amalfi Coast for exploring its highlights, including Pompeii, Vesuvius, and Herculaneum.

It’s a little overwhelming to wander the streets of Pompeii and consider its fate. A guided tour takes you through houses, theatres, and other buildings long buried under volcanic ash. Visiting the excavations will give you a good sense of the work being done here before you climb Mount Vesuvius, enjoying a guided tour of the crater. On your second day, visit the mountain’s lesser known victim, Herculaneum. It’s lesser known because the material that buried the city was harder to penetrate, frustrating excavators, but also protecting it from looters. As a result, the site is now one of the best preserved Roman sites you’ll ever explore.

Day 2

Pompeii and Vesuvius

Today you will combine a visit to Pompeii with a climb to the summit of the Volcano! This guided tour begins with a visit to the excavations at Pompeii. Walking through the ancient streets you can visit the houses, theatre and many other buildings present in the ancient town. This area was once the residence of Roman patricians before the tremendous eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD. After lunch (own account), you will continue the afternoon by visiting Mount Vesuvius, where you will enjoy a guided tour to the crater. From here there are wonderful views of the gulf of Naples.

Duration7 Hours
Day 3

Herculaneum

This morning you will rediscover Roman Civilisation at one of the best preserved sights in the area. Herculaneum, ancient city of 4000-5000 inhabitants in Campania, Italy. The city was destroyed - together with Pompeii, Torre Annunziata, and Stabiae - by the Vesuvius eruption of ad 79. The particular circumstances of the burial of Herculaneum, unlike those of Pompeii, led to the formation over the city of a compact mass of tufaceous material about 50 to 60 feet (15 to 18 metres) deep. Although this layer made excavation very difficult, it preserved Herculaneum and prevented tampering and looting. Thus, Herculaneum offers a detailed impression of private life that is only with difficulty achieved in other centres of the ancient world. The public monuments uncovered include the palaestra (sports ground), with a large portico surrounding a vast central piscina (swimming pool), and thermae (baths), one of which adjoins the former beachfront. This bath is in a remarkable state of preservation, having remained largely protected against the pyroclastic flows of the eruption. Excavation continues, since the demolition of part of Ercolano, at the forum of the ancient city and at the ancient coastline.
