(EX2) ROME TO SORRENTO AND POMPEI

 

Duration 11 hours.
We leave from your hotel around 7:30/ 8:00 a.m. and drive to Sorrento first.

Sorrento is a lovely resort area at the tip of the homonymous peninsula which separates the Gulf of Naples from the Gulf of Salerno. The drive to Sorrento offers unforgettable panoramas. Driving along the winding road, built on spectacular overhanging cliffs, the isle of Capri, the city of Naples and the mount Vesuvius appear in front of your eyes and you will be swept off one's feet. On the way to Sorrento, we can make a stop to visit a famous Cameo Factory Donadio and see the old artisans at work making cameos the same way the Greeks where making here them 3000 years ago. This short stop gives us the opportunity to stretch our legs and taste the famous Neapolitan Espresso at the nearby coffee shop.

Arriving in Sorrento about one hour can be spent walking around its narrow streets and looking at the colorful shops selling typical products like Limoncello liqueur, inlaid wooden furniture, embroidery and ceramics. Sorrento is also a good place for a nice, typical seafood based lunch or the famous pizza margherita that was invented in this region in one of the tipical restaurant that I can suggest.

Leaving Sorrento in the early afternoon, we drive to Pompeii to visit the famous excavations. I would love to guide personally my clients through the ruins, but I can't because they have local guides there and they are the only ones who have the permit for guiding through Pompeii's ruins. The cost for hiring a local guide is about 100 Euros, for a group up to 6 people, and the tour lasts nearly 2 hours. The alternative to hiring a personal guide is the audio guide, that you can rent insight. After visiting Pompeii we return to Rome to arrive there in the early evening.
