This tour’s to-do list starts off in the world-famous coastal town of Sorrento. You’ll journey here from the port with your guide, who’ll give you a brief history lesson about the town on the way. You’ll travel along a road that’s been carved into the hillside, so you’ll be treated to 180-degree panoramic views of the Bay of Naples. When you arrive, you’ll have a couple of hours to explore under your own steam. Go for a stroll along the yacht-filled marina, browse around the traditional souvenir shops for handmade wooden decorations and jewellery, or slip into one of the restaurants or cafés and sample some locally made limoncello. Afterwards, it’s time to head to Pompeii. This 2,000-year-old ancient city was buried in a sea of ash when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79AD. These days, it’s Italy’s number one historical sight, thanks to the state of the ruins. Your guide will show you around the streets, and you’ll hear stories about what happened while taking a look at body casts that were made with real human remains. When you’re done at Pompeii, you’ll then head back to the port.
