POMPEII - HERCULANEUM - VESUVIUS

 

One of Joe Banana Limos English speaking drivers will meet you at Sorrento port right where the tender of your cruise ship docks and together you will drive by the Sorrento Coast. 

 

After about a 45 minute drive you will arrive at ruins of Pompeii, part of an ancient Roman city destroyed and buried by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A.D.. This is the first stop on this breathtaking shore excursion!

 

The remainder of the uncovered city is buried under the new Pompeii rebuilt many years after the eruption. Archeological excavations are open to the public between the hours of 08:30 and 18:30 every day of the week, and either personal guides can be hired at the entrance or audioguides can be rented, with voice recordings in many languages to explain the sites.

 

Please note that since Pompeii is a popular area for tourists, we strongly recommend being cautious of your belongings and leave valuables on the ship! We would also advise that you take plenty of water, especially in the summer months, and ensure you are either well covered or well slathered in sun screen as there is very little shade from which to escape the sun.

 

You will then meet back outside of the ruins and continue your tour with a visit to the volcano responsible for the death and destruction of Roman life on that ill-fated day in 79 A.D. 

 

Mount Vesuvius, regarded by many in that time period as nothing less than a gift from the gods, attracted thousands of prosperous citizens who sought comfort and luxury in its majesty. In those days of abundance and wealth, no Neapolitan would have anticipated the hidden threat churning inside their beloved mountain and erupting violently during the morning of August 24th, 79 A.D., destroying all of the surrounding cities, spitting lava and gases into the air. Since then, Vesuvius has erupted approximately three dozen times. The most recent eruptions between 1913-1944 were thought to bring to an end an eruptive cycle that began in 1631. 

 

However, unpredictably, the last eruption of Vesuvius occurred on the 1944. You too can view the crater of Vesuvius which stands 1281 meters above sea level.  Our vehicles can take you half way up this climb and you can tackle the rest by walking for approximately 45 minutes up the steep mount; the view from the top makes the effort more than worthwhile!

 

At this point you will have time for a much needed break and our driver will be happy to suggest a location for lunch based on your preferences. 

 

Once re-energized, we will transition to our last site of the day, Herculaneum. This ancient residential town of Greek origins, has also become an important stop for those tourists wishing to steep themselves in history.  Destroyed and buried in ashes, together with Pompeii, by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Herculaneum also offers a variety of beautiful scenery and invaluable arts. Strangely, excavations began by accident in 1709 when some workers were digging a well - they discovered a wall, obviously old and out of sight for hundreds of years, which was later found to be one of the stages of the ancient theatre. Later, there were many human skeletons uncovered at the ancient shoreline, suggesting that numerous inhabitants attempted to escape by sea, but perished when mountains collapsed into rivers of lava and volcanic gases were released. 

 

As you did in Pompeii, you will have time to explore this archeological site on your own, with the assistance of a rented audio guide or by hiring a private tour guide. 

 

After this historically rich day, you will return to the port in Sorrento.
