Pompeii Ruins

The Roman town of Pompeii, on the volcano’s southern slopes, was caught 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.

We suggest to visit during the day one family vineyards located on the base of Vesuvius where you will try some of their wine and traditional delicious food of the area.

At the winery you can taste 4 different types of wine of this region and also have lunch in the restaurant at the winery.

The lunch will include bruschetta, cheese, salami with bread and olive oil, spaghetti with fresh cherry tomatoes, a typical local cake and Apricot liquor or Grappa.

The winery will cost 30 euros per person.
if you don’t like the wine we can get to a lovely Pizza restaurant for your delicious lunch.  

When you leave the winery the driver will head to the ruins of Herculaneum.

Herculaneum ruins

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.

Other highlight include the casa del Atrio Mosaico, with its beautifully preserved mosaic flooring.

After Herculaneum your driver will take you for a great home made gelato before get back to Sorrento port.
