Pompeii is the only opportunity to walk around an ancient Roman city, following the roman streets and practically for feeling yourself as a Roman citizen of 2000 years ago.

The archeological site of Pompeii has been discovered during the XVIII century, in fact the first discoveries were in 1748 and this excavation work hasn’t been yet completed.

An area of the site is still underground and some already discovered parts are under restoration works. Pompeii ruins is composed by many Domus and buildings for public utilities that is the reason why it needs a good maintenance and surveillance.

Pompeii is such an important archeological site to become a part of UNESCO World Heritage since 1997.

The time we usually spend for the ruins visit is two hours with a professional official guide of the archaeological site.

If you decide to visit it alone you can plan the timing with your chauffeur, in order to meet him when you come out and the meeting point is the same of the last drop off.

Continuing your excursion next destination is Sorrento, famous vacation place for people coming from all over the world.

During the last years Sorrento has been one of the most popular tourist destinations after Rome and Venice, a really important success if you look at its dimensions.

Quiet, nice and safe town for walking and visiting the typical spots, Sorrento is famous for local products such as lemons, walnuts and olive oil, limoncello and then manufactures such as music boxes of inlaid wood! Sorrento is also known as the “Mermaids land” and it has many connections with mythology and history.

Founded in the VIII-VII century B.C. the city was important for the Romans too; in fact the Roman emperors usually chose Capri as their favourite vacation place but all people living around him chose Sorrento as vacation place in order to be so close as possible to the emperor with the possibility to go back to Rome immediately in case of an emergency.

Sorrento and its beauties are famous for songs and movies too.

In the city there are amazing villas and hotels, very important for history and for the celebrities who have been there in the last century.

  After the visit of Sorrento it is time to proceed to Positano.

Along the way there are many interesting stops for pictures with breathtaking views and you should get there in a little bit longer than one hour.

Here your chauffeur will stop and show you all the highlights with details about mythology, traditions and history.

Your way down ends at the beach, where looking behind you there is one of the most beautiful views, made of colourful houses built following the steep cliff.

After the amazing experience in Positano it is time to go back and meet your chauffeur again in the same parking area in order to go back to your cruise ship.
