Select Pompeii and Herculaneum - Full Day - Incl Lunch

Visit the glorious sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum and stand where Mount Vesuvius destroyed the ancient civilisation in AD 79 on this select tour which allows you to explore without the usual hustle and bustle of the normal coach tours!

Firstly you will drive from Sorrento to Herculaneum and enjoy a guided visit of this UNESCO World Heritage Site site for a couple of hours. You can explore what is one of the few ancient cities that can now be seen in much of its original splendour as unlike Pompeii the deep pyroclastic material which covered it preserved wooden and other organic-based objects such as roofs, beds, doors, food and even some 300 skeletons which were surprisingly discovered in recent years.

From there you drive to the wonderful Pompeii for a light lunch and an afternoon visit to this unique place.

It is dedicated to Dionysius, also known as Bacchus, the god of wine.
