Pompeii and Vesuvius from Naples

Pompeii holds an intense fascination for visitors today. Following the eruption of the Volcano Mount Vesuvius in the year 79 AD, Pompeii lay buried and forgotten for hundreds of years. The tour will show you something of the lifestyle of the ancient inhabitants of the Town, and you'll be astonished by the number of villas, shops and public buildings that archaeologist brought back to light.

The Town is high on the list of Wonders of the World and the excavations which began in the 18th Century are still being carried out today. Our guide will take you slowly through some of the ancient streets of Pompeii where you can see Baths, Forums and Villas built by the prosperous Romans in the year 80 BC. Marvel at the fabulously preserved Frescoes which adorned the walls and floors of the Villas. Even if your interests do not lie in the history, this is an archaeological site you cannot fail to be impressed by.

You will visit some of the places on the following itinerary: Amphitheatre - Palestra - Casa dei Fuggiaschi - Casa del Menandro - Teatro Grande e Piccolo - Palestra dei Gladiatori - Terme Stabiesi - Lupanare – Il Faro - Casa dei Vetti - Casa del Fauno - Casa del Poeta Tragico - Villa dei Misteri.

** Sometimes certain areas may not be available to visit due to closure for renovation work. The guide will inform the exact itinerary during the tour **

After lunch we will move up to Mount Vesuvius which dominates the Bay of Naples. It is the only active volcano on the mainland of Europe. The slopes were once covered with vineyards and woods and provided an innocent looking backdrop for the bustling town below. The coach will take you to within 1,000 metres of the top of Vesuvius  and from here you can walk to the very top and admire the splendid panoramic views across the bay. From the blackened crater rises a single plume of smoke, a reminder that the volcano is only sleeping for now...

** We suggest to wear comfortable shoes to climb to the crater **
