Step back in time and explore a Roman city frozen in a single moment, walk the streets and see where the Romans of 79 AD lived, worked, relaxed and entertained. Using their vast knowledge your guide will bring the city back to life through a detailed tour. Pompeii was partially destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79, and it was lost for nearly 1700 years before its accidental rediscovery in 1749. Since then, its excavation has provided an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire.

Today, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the most popular tourist attractions of Italy, with approximately 2,500,000 visitors every year.

After visiting Pompeii we will head in to the national park of Mt. Vesuvius a 10 minute drive from Pompeii where we stop at a local winery.

On arrival the owners will take you on a tour of the vineyards and wine cellar. Then whilst enjoying a spectacular view - on one side the island of Capri and a backdrop of the dominating slopes of Mt. Vesuvius you are invited to taste their best wines and enjoy a relaxing light lunch, all set in the middle of the vineyard. Starter includes local salami, cheese and bruschetta, followed by spaghetti (produced locally) prepared with a fresh tomato sauce made from tomatoes grown on the slopes of the volcano; and to finish a typical Neapolitan dessert - Pastiera Cake. All served along with 5 different wines red and white, rose prosecco and apricot grappa.

Enjoy a relaxed return drive to the Port of Sorrento.
