    Walking Tour Vesuvius

    After around 40 minutes we will reach the confines of the Vesuvius National Park – from here you can reach the famous crater by foot. Along the way you will be able to see numerous species of flora & fauna – and if you are lucky you may even spot the “tinnunculus” Falcon, or the Vesuvius Fox. Once at the top the view can only be described as breath-taking – The Gulf of Naples! Once the walking tour is over your private driver will drop you off at the main entrance of Herculaneum where you will have around 2 hours to explore the ruins.

    Herculaneum Ruins

    Following the given itineraries on the archaeological website you can wander among the ancient ruins of the antique roman city devastated from the eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD. Alternatively, if you are looking for a more in depth experience our advice is to hire a local authorized guide – who will be able to give you fascinating facts about the ancient Romans & show you some of the hidden gems of the site. Afterwards your driver will accompany you to a vineyard on the very slopes of Vesuvius, where you will get to do a small wine tasting and try some local produce.
