inhabitants in pyroclastic hot surges. This ash did, however,
preserve the site, freezing it in time so that visitors can see
what restaurants, shops, homes, and public spaces would have been
like nearly 2000 years ago.
Explore at your own pace on Day 9. You could
visit Sorrento's Dalì museum or explore a little further afield.

The travel arrangements were fine and the organised tours (plus the extra one organised at the time by our tour guide) were excellent. Hotel accommodation was excellent though the meals were uninspired with little choice for Coeliac or vegetarian.. We ate out several times.
