Your Pompeii and Sorrento Tour begins with a relaxing drive to southern Italy to the region of Campania.

Your first stop will be at the archaeological park of Pompeii, a once prosperous ancient Roman commercial town of about 11,000 people that became frozen in time entombed in volcanic mud when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD.

Pompeii is believed to have been founded in the 7th or 6th century BC by the Osci, ancient Italiac people of Campania, and conquered by Rome in 80 BC.

It remained lost for about 1,500 years until its discovery led to excavations which continue even today. Buried under tons of ash, this ancient town and its artifacts have been kept well preserved for so long due to lack of air and moisture.

Pompeii will give you a hauntingly beautiful and detailed insight into the ancient world of the Romans for an unforgettable experience of this ancient town that disappeared in a flash.

Along the distressed cobblestone streets, you can walk in the footsteps of the ancient locals and venture through the well-preserved ruins of once impressive villas decorated with vivid frescoes, apartment buildings for the working class, bars, bakeries, stores, and workshops.

Surprisingly, Pompeii has been a "tourist attraction" for about 250 years and is currently visited by approximately 2.5 million visitors each year.
