Make your own way to Piazza dei Cinquecento to meet your guide for the day. Then, hop aboard your train for the high-speed journey to Naples, and then continue by transfer to Pompeii. Bypass the entrance lines and head straight inside with your skip-the-line ticket to explore the archaeological digs.
Your 2-hour tour takes in the streets around the ancient town as well as the domus of Pompeii — a site to which your group has exclusive access. Learn about Pompeii’s upper-class gentry who lived in these houses as you wander around.
Enjoy a break to shop for keepsakes and perhaps a snack, and then relax on the journey to nearby Sorrento: gateway to the Amalfi Coast. Sip the local limoncello, the popular southern Italian liqueur, and hear tales of Sorrentine culture and history from your guide as you explore artisan shops in the town.
Make the most of some free time for lunch, and then later, at a prearranged time, return to Rome by high-speed train.
