This day trip from Rome by luxury Mercedes van will take you to Pompeii, a city devastated by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79. After Pompeii, travel to Sorrento for lunch, shopping or even a dip in the crystal clear Tyrrhenian Sea. We meet in the heart of Rome and set off early for Pompeii where you will meet your expert Archaeologist guide for a small group walking tour of the ruins. Next stop scenic Sorrento for incredible sea views! Picture-postcard towns abound, all nestled in white limestone cliffs typical of the Amalfi Coast. A sampling of sweet (but strong!) limoncello made from the most aromatic local lemons complete this day before the relaxing drive back to Rome.
