How to reach the Venue

Driving from Naples to Sorrento

You might think that driving along a coastline as the Bay of Naples could be lovely and picturesque, and that is, in a certain way, true. Nevertheless, the roughly 50km (30mi) trip is primarily on crowded highways (so you will be probably get stuck in traffic), far away from the coast. Actually, it is unpredictable how long it will take – especially on summer weekends when it is not just the tourists who are heading for the beaches, but the locals as well.

Pompei & Vesuvius (full day)

Pompei holds an intense fascination for visitors today. Following the eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius in the year 79 AD, the thriving and prosperous town of Pompei lay buried and forgotten for hundreds of years. Excavations started in the XVIII° century and continue today, giving us treasures from the Roman period. After the visit of wonderful houses with their original frescos, thermae and other public buildings, there is free time for lunch. After lunch there will be a bus ride up to the height of the volcano, and from there you can walk to the crater. Authorized mountain guide will escort the visitors. Mount Vesuvius dominates the Bay of Naples. It is the only active volcano left on the mainland of Europe. The slopes were once covered with vineyards and woods and provided an innocent looking backdrop for the bustling town below. The coach will take you on the very top of Vesuvius and from there you will admire the splendid panoramic views across the bay. Remember to bring comfortable shoes (not sandals) and your camera.
