Pompeii & Vesuvius Group Tour
THE ONLY PLACE IN THE WORLD THAT GIVES YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT AN ANCIENT ROMAN TOWN AND DRIVE TO THE TOP OF THE VOLCANO THAT DESTROYED IT TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO
The day kicks off in Naples at 08:30, where you will be collected from the cruise terminal 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 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.
The route that will take you to the top of mount Vesuvius goes through a National Park of unusual beauty. Pine forests and lush woods, brooms by the bright yellow flowers and an uncanny volcanic landscape. A most spectacular drive with amazing views of the bay of Naples.
