Immerse yourself in the Roman ruins of Herculaneum then visit the volcano that buried them. The private day trip from Sorrento starts with a visit to the archaeological site at Herculaneum, a town, like Pompeii, that was buried under volcanic mud after the AD 79 eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. After a tour of its well-preserved streets, you'll travel by car to the slopes of the infamous volcano, then walk to the crater, if you wish. Entrance fees and food through the day are at your own expense.
