Pompeii-Herculaneum-Wine tasting excursion from Sorrento

Duration: 8 hours (from 8:30am until 4:30pm) Places you will visit: Pompeii Herculaneum Vesuvius

This tour is designed for lovers of archeology and also wine drinkers that would like to taste the famous wine in the Campania region called:"Lacryma Christy" while trying our typical food specialties.

The first stop will be in Pompeii where you will visit for 2 hours the rest of the old Roman town that was totally buried by a thick carpet of volcanic ash during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the 79AD. You can hire a licensed guide to maximize your limited time there or you can walk in the site on your own.

The tour will continue towards Herculaneum, the old town of Resina that was totally buried by Lava and Mud flows during the Catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the 79AD and actually it is better preserved than Pompeii. Here you will have 1 and 1/2 hours to visit the ruins on your own or hire an official licensed guide on your behalf.

After the tour will continue to the the Cantina del Vesuvio, a local winery located at the feet of Mount Vesuvius where you can also join a wonderful view of Capri, Sorrento and the entire bay of Naples. In this winery that was born after the last eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the 1944, you will be served some appettizers (bruschetta, salame, provolone, home made bread with extravirgin olive oil), spaghetti with cherry tomatoes to finish with our typical easter cake the "Pastiera Napoletana" (a ricotta and corn pie), all these food will be accompanied with 4 different wines (among white, red and rosèe), 1 spumante (sparkling wine) and 1 distilled of apricot.
