On our way to Sorrento, we will stop at Pompeii, location of the ruins left by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79AD. It is a sobering site to visit, but for history lovers, it is fascinating! A skilled guide here in Pompeii will make the story of the lost city come to life.
Mt. Vesuvius still stands regally overloooking the ruins, and tours are offered to the top where people can look down into the volcano. Some say it's just a matter of time before she once again erupts.
