This shore excursion is designed for people who wish to visit the ruins of Pompeii and the highlights of the wonderful city of Naples.
Your English speaking driver will pick you up at the Sorrento port at 8AM.
The first stop will be at the ruins of Pompeii which is the old town that was buried from the Catastrophic Eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the year 79 A.D. and was excavated just in the 1748 (not completed yet!). In Pompeii we can also arrange for you a professional licensed guide that will lead you inside the ruins for 2 hours to maximize your limited time there otherwise you can walk in the ruins on your own.
The tour will continue towards the city to Naples, which is the 3rd largest city we have in Italy (after Rome and Milan) with almost 1 million of inhabitants.
Your driver will drive you through the major attractions of the city and will give free time to take a stroll in the downtown (Piazza Plebiscito and Piazza Trieste and Trento where are the famous Theatre San Carlo, the Galleria Umberto I, the Royal Palace, Castle Nuovo, the shopping street called Via Roma and the Bar Gambrinus famous for its espresso coffee and the typical Neapolitan paistry called "Sfogliatella"). Then we will drive you through the water front where are all the best Hotels in Naples till the area called the postcard of Naples (where you can join a wonderful panorama of the city and Sorrento, Capri and Mount Vesuvius in the distance).
Today you will have the opportunity to taste the real Pizza Margherita that was born in Naples in the 1889 as we can recommend you a good local Restaurant where you can try the Pizza or the other specialties of the area (like seafood and fresh fish).
Then we will drive you through the Duomo of San Gennaro before to get to the National Archeological Museum which is the Europe's most important and largest archaeological museum. Here you can see most of the findings from the excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum, two of the towns that were destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79 A.D.
After visiting the Museum we will drive you back to the Sorrento port at about 5pm.
