Pompeii and Herculaneum 

departure every Sunday  from 7.40 to 8.35 a.m.

Full day guided excursion by coach, to the famous archeological sites of Pompeii  and Herculaneum. Pompeii holds an intense fascination for visitors today. Following the eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius in the year 79 A.D. Pompeii lay buried and forgotten for hundreds of years. The town is high on the list of Wonders of the World and the excavations begun in the 18th Century are still being carried out today. The guide will take you slowly throught some of ancient streets of Pompeii where you can see Baths, Forums and Villas built by the prosperous Roman in the year 80 BC. Marvel at the fabulously preserved Frescos which adorned the walls and floors on the Villas. When the catastrophe of 79 AD occurred Herculaneum was submerged under a torrent of mud and lava that hardened into a soft tufa (a kind of course rock) that preserved many of the wooden parts of houses and household objects which can be seen today. A large part of the town is still buried, and certainly many art treasures are still to be found. Return to Sorrento in the afternoon.
