Shore Excursion from Naples or Sorrento to Pompeii, Herculaneum and the Museum of Naples
A full immersion in the Roman Archeology of the bay of Naples. The 2 town buried under the fury of the Mt Vesuvius on the 79 a. D. : Pompeii and its 150 acres of port-town with its dynamic commercial and social life, Herculaneum, the smaller but better preserved archaeological Park, with its incredible remains of daily life. Last but not least all the finds from those roman towns on exhibit at the Archaeological Museum of Naples: frescoes, statues, mosaics, musical instruments, medical instruments, glasses, jewellery, keys, dices. . . you name it! A must for archeology lovers.
From the Port or any hotel centrally located in town we will first head to Pompeii. We will try to avoid the main tour groups staying off-the beaten track. The visit at Pompeii will take approx 2 hours and it will be tuned onto people desires and phisical attitudes. However I shall try to show you the highlights of the site.
Later we will visit Hercolaneum, which is smaller but better preserved and very pleasant because less visitor come here.
This visit will take about 1 and half hour.
At last we came back to Naples and its Museum, where we will concentrate on the collection related to Pompeii and Hercolaneum.
Whenever requested we can stop for a lunch break: depending on your desires in Naples you find everything for a reasonable price.

Fabrizio was really knowledgeable, and he planned the day so that we could see the highlights and avoid the crowds. He made the trip to Pompeii and Herculaneum a wonderful experience for all of us.
