This tour allows people to visit the archeological site of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Once there, you will have the chance to enjoy a shared guided tour to visit the ruins with an English-speaking guide.
What to Expect
This full-day excursion will allow you to visit both Pompeii and Herculaneum. You will start by spending two hours in Pompeii and visiting the main highlights of the site then later moving on to Herculaneum.
The tour will start from Sorrento where you will be picked up from your hotel/ accommodation or from the nearest dedicated meeting point. The bus will leave from Sorrento heading toward Pompeii. After two hours spent in the ruins of Pompeii, you will be driven to Herculaneum where you can visit the remains of the old city with an English-speaking guide.
Not everyone knows this but the preservation status of the two archaeological sites are different because while Pompeii was buried under a layer of ashes and lapilli, Herculaneum was buried under a flood of mud and lava so it is important you visit both cities to completely understand the architecture of the old Roman settlements. At the end of the tour, you will be driven back to the meeting point.
