    Pompeii

    The Roman town of Pompeii, on the volcano’s southern slopes, was caught unawares by a massive eruption in AD 79, which smothered the town, its people and their goods and chattels preserved for centuries, the site has been, and continues to be, excavated, so as you walk up and down the street you can peer into shop and private homes, read advertisements and graffiti and generally get a unique picture of daily life in Roman times.

    Vesuvius

    When you leave Pompeii the driver will head to Vesuvius The driver will drive to the top of the Vesuvio but before you arrive at the ticket office where you will begin your climb, Your driver will stop in some terraces along the road so you can admire the view of the entire Naples bay. Our Driver will stop in the front of office ticket, from there you walk up to along the slopes of Vesuvius to arrive on the crater rim. The duration of the walk is approximately 30 \ 40 minutes Mount Vesuvius is one of the most known volcano in history and one of the most dangerous because still active. The Vesuvius just upon the Gulf of Naples, erupted in 1944, blasted open the cone and the plume of smoke that has always been the symbol of imminent peril, disappeared too. If you reach the crater, you will see a wonderful landscape of Naples and if atmospheric conditions allow it, you will see the Isle of Capri and the Isle of Procida. Your driver can recommend a snack bar for a slice of Pizza or a sandwich for the well earned light lunch. We always recommend to not eat to much during this tour because you will walking a lot and is much better to be light but after your driver will take you for a gelato before get back to the hotel.

    Herculaneum

    This interesting archeological site of Herculaneum is often bypassed for the more glamorous Pompeii, but the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79 that buried Pompeii also submerged Herculaneum, preserving both settlements. Probably the most famous of the well-preserved houses is Villa dei Papiri, the home of a rich and powerful Roman statesman, thought to be either Lucio Pisone, Julius Caesar’s father in law, or his son. More than 50 marble and 20 bronze sculpture were found in the villa, together with an amazing collection of 1,700 greek and Roman papyri. The villa and Roman the theatre can only be visited by advance booking. From Herculaneum the drive will drop you off at Amalfi port at 5 P.M.
