    hrs Estimate Duration
  • Meal


Savor a traditional lunch and a taste of Limoncello in Sorrento before meandering through the ruins of Pompeii. A step-by-step demonstration of Limoncello-making will serve as an introduction to Sorrentine gastronomy and sampling a glass of this sweet, intensely lemon-flavored liqueur will enhance that knowledge. Dining at a popular restaurant in Sorrento will add another dimension to your understanding of the local specialties as the meal will feature dishes that are synonymous with Sorrento. Chicken breasts topped with eggplant, prosciutto and fontina cheese are often on the menu. Following free time in Pompeii, you will watch the ancient art of cameo engraving. The catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. buried Pompeii under ash and pumice, which helped preserve it. Excavations have unearthed buildings largely intact with frescoes adorning the walls and everyday objects scattered about, just as they were when the volcano erupted. It will be an eye-opening look into ancient life.
