An intriguing day tour exploring the archaeological site of Pompeii, followed by wine-tasting with an expert wine-maker on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius

This fascinating day tour takes you from your hotel in Sorrento to the intriguing lost city of Pompeii. Once a bustling town on the south coast of Italy, Pompeii was destroyed by an ancient volcanic eruption in 79 AD, when a thick cloud of ash buried the city and its unfortunate inhabitants. The ash served to preserve the city in time and, when it was discovered nearly 1500 years later, archaeologist unveiled one of the world's most important archaeological sites, where everything from shops, homes, mosaics and Roman baths to sleeping people had been frozen in time. It consequently offers a unique glimpse back in time and will particularly appeal to those interested in Roman history.
