Herculaneum and Sorrento excursion

from  48,00

Departure from the Pick up point by GT Bus to Herculaneum.

Guided visit to the archaeological excavations. It was e residential town without Pompeii’s commercial importance, surrounded by the villas of wealthy Romans.

When the catastrophe of 79 AD occurred, Herculaneum was buried by a torrent of mud that hardened into a sof tufa (a kind of course rock) that preserved many of the wooden parts of houses and household objects which can b eseen today.

A large portion of old Herculaneum is still buried under the modern town and even today excavations are going on to discover what treasures lie buried under the rock.

Departure to Sorrento, on arrival free time for optional lunch. Visit of the city centre: In the lanes of the old city centre, still untouched in spite of the progress and mass tourism, have survived churches and ancient monasteries, keepers of valuable memories. The real architectonic jewel of the town is the fourteenth century Cloister of San Francesco, with crossed tuff arches of Arabian derivation, where the traditional concerts of the “Estate Musicale Sorrentina” take place.

Visit to an inlaid wood-work shop, the typical Sorrentine production. Return to Amalfi Coast driving along the famous Amalfi Drive road, through the picturesque villages of Conca dei Marini, Furore and Praiano.

Photo stop at the famous Belvedere in Positano. Return in hotel in the afternoon.
