Rome Full Day Trip from Sorrento with Dinner

Rome Full Day Trip from Sorrento with Dinner

Go Roaming in Rome

Rome may not have been built in a day, but you can see most of its iconic sights in one. Travel back in time to the days of togas and chariots at the Colosseum. Keep an eye out for the Pope in the Vatican. Or sigh over the magnificent ceiling frescoes in the Sistine Chapel. And that is just the tip of the iceberg as there is a whole galaxy of must-sees in the Eternal City.

Throw a coin or two into the Trevi Fountain and walk down the Spanish Steps, stroll around massive St Peter's Cathedral and do not forget the Imperial Palace, a monument on Palatine Hill. This tour is a real sightseeing pick and mix but with some free time to tick off your must-sees, you might just squeeze them all in. Then end your memorable day in Italy's capital city in style with a tasty dinner before you head home.

Day trip to Pompeii & Herculaneum from Sorrento

Day trip to Pompeii & Herculaneum from Sorrento

Two Wonders in One Day

Don't miss this great opportunity to visit both Herculaneum and Pompeii, possibly the most well preserved example of a Roman residential town in the world. You'll start with a visit to Herculaneum, a residential coastal town which has been superbly preserved beneath the volcanic mud which rained down upon the city during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD.

You have time to view the town before the guided tour begins. The buildings in Herculaneum have been so well preserved that you can walk down streets which are pretty much unchanged from Roman times. Next it's on to Pompeii for a tour that includes all the sights in the ancient city including the baths, bakeries, arena and, of course, the infamous brothel.

Herculaneum - 1/2 Day Tour from Sorrento

Herculaneum - 1/2 Day Tour from Sorrento

See the Buried Treasures

Enjoy a fascinating journey back in time to the ancient town of Herculaneum. Your tour will head out along the gorgeous coastal road through Castellammare di Stabia and along the highway to Herculaneum, which was destroyed along with Pompei in 79 AD and rediscovered in 1709. It was a residential town, without Pompeii's commercial importance, but surrounded by the villas of wealthy Romans.

When Mount Vesuvius erupted, Herculaneum was submerged under a torrent of mud and lava that hardened into a soft tufa (a kind of course rock), preserving many of the timber features and household objects which can be seen today. Much of old Herculaneum is still buried under the modern town, and excavations are going on to discover what treasures lie buried.This is an amazing tour that brings the history of the city to life.
