Our excursion in Sorrento include a visit to the ancient Roman walls and definitely a bit 'of time for those who want to enjoy a glass of limoncello typical fresh.
Then, the bus will take us to Pompeii in about 40 minutes. During the transfer we could see Vesuvius, located on the eastern side of the province of Naples. After the eruption of 79 AD, which destroyed the towns of Herculaneum and Pompeii, its morphology has been profoundly changed: the caldera about 4 km in diameter, is what is left of the original volcanic cone. Vesuvius is currently the only active volcano in all of continental Europe. Once in Pompeii, we will visit the Temple of Apollo, the Macellum, the Case of the Faun and Pliny the Elder (tragic poet of ancient Rome) and other public and private buildings that were lost during the explosion of the volcano, temples, theaters, villas and of course the thermae. The visit will last three hours, then we will take back the bus to return to Naples to end our shore escursion.
