Pompeii & Vesuvius

}

Duration

Full day

Language available

English

The beautiful bay of Naples is dominated by two important landmarks both connected by historical and cultural tradition: the archaeological site of Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius. The mountain was once cone shaped, much higher, and the slopes covered in woodland and vineyards providing an innocent backdrop to the town below until the eruption of 79 AD.

Tour details
The coach will take you up 1000 meters and from there you can take a footpath to the top (approx. 25 min) and admire the splendid views across the bay and look deep into the blackened crater. Following the eruption of the volcano, Pompeii lay buried for hundreds of years. The town is one of the most visited sites in the world. Your local guide will walk you along the original Roman streets to see the ancient shops and bars and marvel at the fabulously preserved frescoes and mosaics which adorned the walls and floors of the villas and baths and visit the Forum, the hearth of religious, commercial and judicial Roman life. Even if your interests do not lie in history, this is an archeological site which cannot fail to impress.
