Day 5 : Pompeii
We recommend a trip to one of the most sacred and fascinating Roman sights – Pompeii. Well preserved by the ash and lava which destroyed the town in 79AD at the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, this is the ideal place for history lovers. Pre-book the Pompeii and Vesuvius excursion and listen to anecdotes about the town’s history, as well as learning about its careful preservation after discovery in 1748. Later, climb Mount Vesuvius and take in the mesmerising views of the ruins below.
