Tour Details

Pompeii is a city of ruins destroyed by the volcano eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. The remains of its buildings and people are covered in the pumice and ashes that fell from the sky centuries ago. Fascinatingly enough, human remains that date back to the eruption and destruction of this city still exist and you will be able to see them. For over a thousand years Pompeii was a lost city. However, after its discovery in the late eighteenth century, much has been found, and the remains have provided a detailed look at what this city was like during the Pax Romana. On this Pompeii tour an ancient city will come to life as your guide shows you many awe-inspiring places, such as the Forum, the Thermal Baths (public bathrooms used for middle class citizens), Vetti's house, and "Lupanare," all of which were burned during the eruption of Mt Vesuvius and now lay covered in ashes. After you visit the fascinating city, your next stop on this tour of Pompeii will be a short lunch break, where you will enjoy pizza and a beverage.

After lunch, visit the only volcano in Europe to have erupted in the last century. Ride through Torre del Greco, famous for its production of coral jewelry. From there, you'll begin your Vesuvius National Park tour. There you will see the majestic and imposing peak of Mount Vesuvius. Walking with your group at 1200 meters above sea level, you will have the chance to circle a crater while you gaze around you at the extraordinarily wonderful views of the bay of Naples. Spend a few hours in Italy high above its bustling cities on this unique Mount Vesuvius tour after your morning in Pompeii. Return to your hotel having seen the grandeur and impact of Italy's most famous volcano.
