Begin your journey along the Highway of the Sun, driving past the famous Roman countryside, the Castelli Romani. Admire incredible views of the Mediterranean and Mount Vesuvius, as well as countless historic sites.
The first stop is in Naples. This Mediterranean city is famous for its rich history, art, culture and gastronomy. You’ll drive up the Vomero hill for a view over the town which overlooks the bay of Naples and extends from the Sorrento peninsula to volcanic area of Phlegrean fields. The skyline is dominated by the majestic and still active volcano Vesuvius. This is the perfect spot to take photos of this stunning landmark.
Driving down towards the port of Mergellina, travel south towards Mount Vesuvius and the town of Pompeii.
After a traditional Pizza lunch, make your way to the UNESCO Archaeological Site of Pompeii with skip-the-line tickets. Spend the afternoon exploring this once thriving city frozen in time by layers of volcanic ash 19 to 23 feet (6 to 7 meters) deep. The city’s sudden burial served to protect it for the next 17 centuries from vandalism, looting and the destructive effects of climate and heavy weather.
After the tour of Pompeii, enjoy the scenery on the drive back to Rome, returning in time to enjoy an evening in Rome.
