You will be driven to the ruins of Pompeii, a UNESCO heritage site that was once a thriving Roman city that met its cataclysmic end after the volcanic eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD.
Explore the excavation site which was buried under volcanic debris for over 1600 years. Pompeii was once a bustling city with a huge theatre for gladiatorial fights, temples of worship, luxurious Roman villas decorated with brightly painted frescoes and marvelous mosaics and highly mechanised waterway systems.
See the Roman bakery, the Temple of Apollo, the Roman Forum, an ancient supermarket and an old cemetery. See the daunting plastic death casts of people who were caught in the eruption.
Enjoy a lunch break with pizza in a local traditional restaurant. Shop and drive up to 1000 meters and reach the parking for buses. Head to the Vesuvius National Park to see Mt Vesuvius that destroyed the town of Pompeii nearly two thousand years ago and yet rendered it eternal. Hike to the crater and see the charming bay of Naples from the eastern to western side. Discover the spectacular landscapes of the Mount Vesuvius volcano and explore the picturesque national park.
At the end of the tour, you will be driven back to Naples and dropped off to your hotel in the evening.
