Pompeii and Sorrento Excursion
Pompeii is located about 30 km from Naples and 20 km from Sorrento is the ancient city destroyed by the famous eruption of Vesuvius in 79 d.c. The excavations cover an area of about 66 hectares.
Along the way you can admire the grand court, with its impressive temples, shops, craft shops, patrician houses with fascinating frescoes and mosaics and the impressive plaster casts of the bodies of the victims of the tragic eruption of 79 d.c. The Pompeians did not know that the "Mount Vesuvius" was a volcano. Pliny the Younger, a guest in the house of his uncle, Pliny the Elder, historian, scientist and commander of the naval base of Misenum, has left us a precious document that describes the days of the eruption…
Archeological excavations are open to the public from 09:00 am until 18:00 every day of the week.
After Pompeii we continue to discover another beautiful town: Sorrento. The town was famously featured in the early-20th-century song "Torna a Surriento" (Come Back to Sorrento) with lyrics by Giambattista De Curtis.
