Take in the historic sights of the famous Roman town of Pompeii with our full-day tour from Naples.
The day kicks off in Naples at 09:00, where you will be collected from your hotel by your professional English-speaking driver.
Then it’s off to Pompeii, without a doubt one of the most perfectly preserved Roman cities. Why is it such a looking glass into ancient Roman life? Because in AD79 most of the town was buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, and parts of Pompeii were only re-discovered 1,700 years later.
Inside Pompeii you can see narrow paved streets and glorious temples and theatres. There is also the Thermal Baths, the Forums, and the unsettling ‘plaster body casts’, which leave you almost feeling the Roman’s presence around you.
After a light lunch in Pompeii, it’s time to visit Mount Vesuvius for a different kind of adventure. We will drive you along a scenic track to the top of this famous mountain, where you will experience the excitement of walking around the edge of a crater and staring inside an active volcano. And while you’re up there, you can take in the stunning views.
At 5.00 p.m. you’ll be back in Naples, reflecting on the day.
