Dear Guests, this tour of 1 day has been designed for those who wish to enjoy one of the most beautiful archaeological sites of the world, sea and savour!.
You will be met by an English speaking driver/escort, born and residing in Naples and transferred to a heritage listed site, Pompeii ( the guided tour lasts 2 hrs approximately).
The catastrophic eruption of Mont Vesuvius of 79 a.d. caused the destruction of the city but, miraculously, thanks to the layers of pumice and volcanic ash that fell upon, we are still able to admire original roman structures.
But the disaster also preserved a bit of roman life.
The buildings, graphics, artifacts and bodies forever frozen offer a unique window on the ancient world: Pompeii is a frozen moment of history!
Morning will almost be spent here and later on the tour will continue on the picturesque village of Sorrento, famous because of its cliffs and refuge of Caruso the tenor, for some lunch and sightseeing.
Then the diver will escort you to either the entrance of the ferry boat or hydrofoil ( at your preference) where you will set off on your own to explore the island of Capri, that has been visited over the centuries by intellectuals artists and writers, all enthralled by its magical beauties.
It is just 20 minuts fast boat ride from the port of Sorrento, so no time is wasted.
In the roman time Capri became summer resort, beginning from Augustust who built temples, villas and aquetucts, planting gardens so he could enjoy his paradise.
