A Most Incredible Day in Pompeii + Sorrento

I could write so much about our day in Pompeii and Sorrento. It was, without a doubt, one of my favorite stops on the cruise and I will definitely be adding it to my list of places to re-visit. It was just lovely.

We started off in Pompeii and had this amazing older man give us a tour of the site.  Pompeii was destroyed by a volcano over 2,000 years ago, covered in more than 18 feet of ash, the site was not uncovered for more than 1,600 years and, has only in last 150 years, been properly uncovered. It is so incredible how the people of Pompeii lived their lives – their society was incredibly advanced and so well organized. They had a system for everything and it doesn’t seen like we, as humans, have really changed much since then!

The brothel! (Apparently when Bill Clinton visited he wanted to see these rooms! ha)

So beautiful.

So many objects were uncovered!

From Pompeii, we headed to Sorrento and had the most amazing lunch – hands down the best pizza I have ever had!

Afterward we wandered  the streets; Sorrento was beautiful!

Loved our day so much!

  1. Great pictures of Pompeii. My first time there was in 1976 and it was possible to visit far more of the site than we cann today. Happy Travels!
