Seize the opportunity to visit the world-unique Pompeii, the Roman city killed by the Mount Vesuvius, now a silent volcano. You will spend a day surrounded by culture, with a panoramic overview of the lively city of Naples and, then, the haunting ruins of Pompeii, travelling back in time to the tragic days of 79 AD, when the Vesuvius suddenly erupted, covering the prosperous Roman city in deadly volcanic ashes and poisonous gases, leaving this prosperous city crystallized until our days. You will learn how people lived in those times, visiting houses, bars and restaurants: amazing!
Join us on this amazing journey through space and time, entering Pompeii: a unique document of Greco-Roman life.
We will begin our journey along the Highway of the Sun, driving past the famous Roman countryside, the Castelli Romani. Admire an incredible views of the Mediterranean and Mount Vesuvius, as well as to countless historic sites. You will enjoy a short sight of the City, the seashore and the Gulf of Naples.
The first stop is Naples, one of the most enchanting cities in the Mediterranean famous worldwide for its rich history, art, culture and gastronomy, where you will take a short panoramic tour to discover its beauty from the comfort of your coach climbing up the Vomero hill. The town overlooks the bay of Naples which extends from the Sorrento peninsula to vulcanic area of Phlegrean fields, and the skyline is dominated by the majestic and still active volcano Vesuvius, offering an impressive sight perfect to take stunning pictures.
Descending towards the port of Mergellina, you will leave the city and travel south towards Mount Vesuvius and, once you reach the town of Pompeii, you will have the chance to enjoy lunch with a real Neapolitan pizza!
After stopping for a traditional Pizza lunch, we will make our way to the UNESCO Archaeological Site of Pompeii with skip-the-line tickets. We will spend the afternoon exploring this once thriving city that was frozen in time by layers of volcanic ash. Pompeii remained buried under a layer of pumice stones and 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, we will resume our trip through the Roman countryside, enjoying the scenery as we leisurely make our way back to Rome. Return in time to enjoy the rest of the night in Rome at your leisure.
