Depart from the port with your own private guide and driver, soaking in the wonderful view of the Gulf of Naples with Mt. Vesuvius in the background as you drive towards Pompeii, possibly the most famous excavation in the world, where your full day tour begins. Here a flourishing civilization, buried for 1,700 years, has been brought to life again and you can see how the citizens of the greatest empire the world has even known lived and loved; worked and played; ate and drank and died. Follow your knowledgeable guide on a walking tour through these ancient streets and learn about the historical events and the tragic end of the city’s 20,000 inhabitants. The catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. surprised the population of this prosperous provincial capital and resort town, burying it under 20 feet of ash and pumice stone, but in this way preserving a whole city. Next, enjoy an hour’s scenic coastal drive to Sorrento, the home of sirens who attempted to lure Ulysses on to the rocks. Here some free time will be given to explore and shop. Later, your guide will lead you on foot to the Sorrento Marina where you will catch the Jetfoil (public) for your 25-minute trip over to Capri. A tiny island, Capri has natural beauty that has been celebrated for at least 2,000 years. From here you'll drive along a winding road where there are magnificent views of the island and the Gulf of Naples, offering some free time around the famous "Piazzetta"; the heart of shopping. Wander around the narrow streets, explore the fashion designer’s shops, relax in an outdoor cafe or see the sights that most appeal to you, with the help of your guide. Return via the jetfoil to begin your transfer back to Naples port.
