Pompeii. The private tour starts

Pompeii Private Tour from Sorrento
When we arrive in Pompeii, we will stop for a couple of hours at the famous ruins of Pompeii The Scavi.
The Roman town of Pompeii, on the volcano’s southern slopes, was cought unawares by a massive eruption in AD 79, which smothered the town, its people and their goods and chattels. preserved for centuries, the site has been, and continues to be, excavated, so as you walk up and down the street you can peer into shop and private homes, read advertisements and graffiti and generally get a unique picture of daily life in Roman times.
When we leave Pompeii we will head to Vesuvius.
We drive to the top of the Vesuvio but before we arrive at the ticket office where you will begin your climb.
Your Private driver will stop in some terraces along the road so you can admire the view of the entire Naples bay.

The duration of the walk is approximately 30 – 40 minutes.
Mount Vesuvius is one of the most known volcano in history and one of the most dangerous because still active.The Vesuvius, just upon the Gulf of Naples, erupting in 1944, blasted open the cone and the plume of smoke that has always been the symbol of imminent peril, disappeared too.If you reach the crater, you will see a wonderful landscape of Naples and if atmospheric conditions allow it, you will see the Isle of Capri and the Isle of Procida.
Your Driver Guide will recommend a fantastic restaurant for the well earned lunch
After lunch your driver will take you for a gelato before your 2 hour stop at the Herculaneum ruins

Herculaneum last stop of the trip

Herculaneum Tours
This interesting archeological site of Herculaneum is often bypassed for the more glamorous Pompeii, but the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79 that buried Pompeii also submerged Herculaneum, preserving both settlements.
Probably the most famous of the well-preserved houses is Villa dei Papiri, the home of a rich and powerful Roman statesman, thought to be either Lucio Pisone, Julius Caesar’s father in law, or his son.
More than 50 marble and 20 bronze sculpture were found in the villa, together with an amazing collection of 1,700 greek and Roman papyri.
The villa and Roman thetheatre can only be visited by advance booking.
Other highlight include the casa del Atrio Mosaico, with its beautufully preserved mosaic flooring.
