Your Personal driver will be ready and waiting at Salerno port at 8.00am, he will take the scenic route towards Pompeii.
Your personal driver will make stops along this scenic route for you to have the opportunity to capture memories of the breathtaking views of Naples city and mount Vesuvius.
Your private driver will make a stop in Pompeii where you will have a couple of hours to explore the famous Pompeii ruins.
Pompeii is a Roman town which sits on the southern slopes of the volcanic mountain, the town and it’s people suffocated by the huge eruption in AD 79, their personal belonging conserved for centuries.
The excavation site is a working progress since it’s discovery in 1748.
When you walk around the streets, reading the graffiti, looking at the different shops that had been and the private homes and villas, you get a real feel of what life was like in the Roman times.
After leaving Pompeii, we recommend lunch & wine tasting at a family run vineyard located at the bottom of Vesuvius
The vineyard will offer some of their fine wines and traditional local food.
At the Vineyard you will get the opportunity to taste 4 types of wine from the region and have lunch in the winery restaurant.
The lunch will comprise of local cheese & salami served with bread, oil & bruschetta to start with, followed by spaghetti with fresh cherry tomatoes, a traditional local dessert and finished off with an Apricot liquor.
The cost of wine tasting with lunch is 30 euros per person.
If you are not keen on wine we can take you to a delicious pizzeria for your lunch.
After lunch your private driver will take you to the ruins of Herculaneum.
Herculaneum like Pompeii was buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79 but is often sidestepped because of alluring Pompeii, Herculaneum is smaller but the villas are more preserved, The most preserved of them all is Villa dei Papiri believed to be belonging to Julius Caesar’s father in law or his son, currently this villa is under restoration.
The casa del Altrio Mosaico Is also worth exploring as you would not want to miss seeing the well preserved beautiful mosaic flooring.
The boat house is also a well visited place, where people waited to be rescued and unfortunately for some it was too late, you will see the skeletons in the boat house which is based at the bottom of Herculaneum, it’s the last place you can visit in the ruins
After you leave Herculaneum your private driver will make one more stop before taking you back to Salerno Port and that’s for home made Gelato.
