The tour will begin at the Naples train station where you will be welcomed by a City Wonders representative who will accompany you on a coach to the Pompeii site. From there, you’ll be enchanted on a 2-hour guided tour of this ancient city. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pompeii is considered one of the most fascinating archaeological sites in the world, one where time has been captured for eternity. Through an interactive, entertaining and educational commentary, your official expert guide will help you to understand life in Pompeii before the eruption, while exploring the well-preserved ruins that have been encased in layers of volcanic ash for centuries.
Thanks to our exclusive Pompeii partnership, you will have the unique opportunity of exploring the buildings, still decorated with frescoes of animals, powerful gods and lush landscapes. After a short coffee break or some local souvenir shopping, you will then travel to Sorrento on a private, air-conditioned coach. On the way, your guide will entertain you with stories about the area, and its significance during the Roman Empire as the preferred location for Emperors’ holidays. You will enjoy breath-taking views of the famous Sorrento coastal road with a handful of stops in preselected prime locations, so you can take the best photos for lasting memories of your unbelievable experience.
Once in Sorrento, your local expert guide will provide tips and suggestions to help you get the most out of your free time there. Experience the local cuisine by having lunch on the terrace of the town’s most scenic restaurant, do some shopping in the city’s beautiful ancient alleys, or take time to relax among the picturesque panoramic gardens. Then rejoin the group as your guide escorts you to one of Sorrento’s oldest shops for a delectable taste of Southern Italy’s most renowned ‘Limoncello’. While there, you will learn about how this famed liqueur is produced, as well as the local ingredients that make it so unique. You will also be able to buy bottles of this zingy delight to take home!
