Begin your trip with pickup from your Sorrento hotel or the Sorrento port. Travel into the historic city of Naples, stopping at the Cathedral to see the 4th-century Santa Restituta Basilica, as well as Treasure Chapel. Then drive to Plebiscite Square to visit the stunning St Francesco di Paula Church, the Royal Palace and the medieval Castel Nuovo, a major architectural landmark first erected in 1279.
Afterward, soak up gorgeous views of the coast from the district of Posillipo, before continuing on to the UNESCO-listed ruins of Pompeii.
Explore the fascinating archeological site, passing the Thermal Baths, the Forum, the 'Lupanare' brothel and Vetti's House, all buried by volcanic ashes during the eruption. As you wander, your guide will discuss the haunting day in 79 AD when Mt Vesuvius destroyed the prosperous city.
Enjoy 30 minutes of free time to shop or purchase lunch in Pompeii after your tour of the ruins concludes. Then wrap up your trip with transportation back to Sorrento.
