Pick up directly from your hotel or indicated meeting point and departure for full day guided excursions to Pompei and Vesuvius.á
Pompei holds an intense fascionation for visitors today.
Following the eruption of the Volcano Mount Vesuvio in the year 79 AD, Pompei lay buried and forgotton for hundreds of years.
Of the world and the excavations begun in the 18th Century are still being carried out today.
Our guide will take you lowly throught some of the ancient streets of pompei where you can see Baths, Forums and Villas builtby the prosperous Romans in the year 80BC. Marvel at the fabulously preserved Frescos which adorned the walls and floors of the Villas. Even if you interests do not lie in history , this archeological site that cannot fail to impress you.
Mount Vesuvius 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 panomaric views across the bay. (From the backened crater rises a single plume of smoke, a reminder that the volcano is only sleeping for now....) Reminder: Comfortable, closed in shoes and your camera.
