Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin your half-day trip with pickup from your hotel or cruise port in Sorrento. Meet your guide and travel to the massive archaeological site of Pompeii, where Mt Vesuvius spewed tons of volcanic ash in 79 AD, burying the prosperous city along with 20,000 of its residents.

    Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, hop out of your coach and explore the preserved ruins 2,000 years after the eruption. Follow your guide past the beautiful frescoes at Vetti’s House, the Forum, Thermal Baths and the famous Lupanare brothel. As you go, hear the history behind the ancient city and each of the surviving locations.

    Afterward, enjoy 30 minutes to spend at your leisure. Purchase lunch, shop or people-watch before making the return trip back to Sorrento.
