The Best Shore Excursion of Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano from Naples

An ideal day reliving history on this shore excursion is yours to enjoy. The day will start with our English-speaking chauffeur picking you up outside your cruise ship terminal in Naples. Your drive will take you across the city termed as one of the most beautiful places in the world before you head south towards Pompeii.
The area is rich with history and you would want to know some more about it before your visit.

Here are some noteworthy facts about Mount Vesuvius, Pompeii, Sorrento and Positano:

  • Mount Vesuvius is one of the most well-known volcanoes in the world. Over 2000 people were buried under volcanic ash in the eruption of 79 A.D. As a result, Pompeii was not visible anymore and was rediscovered in 1748 by a group of explorers who were surprised to find the city mostly intact. Artifacts and skeletons that were found during the excavations, have thrown light on the life and culture during ancient times.
  • Pompeii played a major role in the neo-Classical revival of the 18th century. Europe’s wealthiest and most fashionable families displayed beautiful art. Reproductions of objects from the ruins and drawings of Pompeii’s buildings have helped shape our knowledge about the artistic and architectural trends of the era.
  • Sorrento is also referred to as the City of Orange and Lemon Groves, Land of Mermaids, colors, mysteries and legends.
  • Positano, during the Middle Ages, was an important port town. In 1268, it was raided by Pisan forces. As a consequence, it was necessary to strengthen its defenses by making the town accessible only by steep roads. Fortified walls punctuated with watch towers were also built at this time.
