visit these two famous places


Join me in this amazing tour where you will discover the history and the art of these two cities known in all over the world.

The legend says that Sorrento was founded by the Greeks, the history that was destroyed by the Romans. . .
Today is one of the most famous villages of the South Italy known for the landscape, the little shops and for the limoncello.

Pompeii is one of the "must to see" for anyone loves history and archaeology. This city was buried in the 79 A. D. and was rediscovered only 17 centuries later.
Walk on Pompeii streets means walking in the history.

Itinerary

A walking tour in Sorrento where we will see:
- the amazing panorama from the public garden,
- the cloister of Saint Francis that date back to the XIV century,
- the "Sedil Dominova" a kind of assembly hall used by the nobility in the Middle Ages.
We will walk from the characteristic via San Cesareo to the Cathedral and I'll show you the details of buildings with more then 700 years old. Sometimes it's possible to ricognize ancient architectonic elements from the roman time reintegrated in the "new buildings".

Transfer by Circumvesuviana train to Pompeii
Light lunch stop in Pompeii or Sorrento (optional)

In Pompeii we will see in detail the most important public buildings: the area of the Theaters, a Sacred area, the public Thermal baths, the Forum (main square) and all its surroundings. At the end I'll explain and show you the incredible technique to obtain the plaster casts of the victims of the eruption.
