  • Discover the famous ruins of Pompeii
  • Explore the amazingly preserved Roman summer resort, Herculaneum
  • Learn about the catastrophic series of events to cause the eruption of 79AD

Standing tall over the bay of Naples, it is hard to imagine Mount Vesuvius destroying four settlements at its base in a catastrophic eruption, but in 79AD this was all too real for locals. This excursion allows you to understand the series of events that caused the destruction and life before the towns were buried.

Begin with a visit to Pompeii, meander through the Roman roads and explore the villas and forums imagining life before the mighty eruption. Next stop is Herculaneum, the ancient summer resort was also destroyed by the famous eruption in 79AD. Although less famous than its neighbour (Pompeii) the archaeological site of Herculaneum is worth a visit. It's said that Herculaneum is better preserved than Pompeii, as it was sealed by lava instead of ash. Here you will find fascinating examples of unspoiled mosaic tiled floors and frescoed villas.

Prices: From £44 per person (depending on resort)

Operates: Sundays from Amalfi, Conca dei Marini, Praiano, Maiori, Minori, Ravello and Positano.

Duration: Full day

Start time: 8:00am approx.

Included: Professional guide, transport, headsets.

Not Included: Hotel pick up and drop off, lunch, entrance fees (combined Pompeii & Herculaneum €22).

To book this excursion, please call one of our Italy Experts. Please note that excursions operate seasonally from May – October and are subject to availability and minimum numbers. Start times and departure points shall be reconfirmed once in resort.
