Everybody in the world knows Pompeii.Videos, films, articles tell all details of the day that the eruption of Volcano Vesuvio took away thousand of people’s life away.
Today the ghostly ruins of ancient Pompeii (Pompei in Italian) make for one of the world’s most engrossing archaeological experiences.
Much of the site’s value lies in the fact that the town wasn’t simply blown away by Vesuvius in AD 79 but buried under a layer of lapilli (burning fragments of pumice stone). The result is a remarkably well-preserved slice of ancient life, where we can walk down Roman streets and snoop around millennia-old houses, temples, shops, cafes, amphitheatres, and even a brothel.
Tour Lenght:2/3 hours
You can visit Pompeii while staying on the Amalfi Coast. I can arrange a transfer with a minivan that picks you up at your hotel. If you are staying in Sorrento, you can catch a train that will take you there. The good thing is that the train station lets you off right in front of the entrance to the archeological park.
If you are in Rome, we can catch the train to Naples (1 hour) then we can either transfer to a local train that will take us to Pompeii or rent a minivan with driver to take us there.
If you are in Rome and you are going to the Amalfi Coast, I can arrange for a minivan with driver to pick you up at the hotel or apartment in Rome, take you to Pompeii and wait while you visit, then take you to your final destination on the Amalfi Coast
