Seize the opportunity to visit one of the most important archaeological sites of the world: Pompeii. You'll spend a day surrounded by nature and culture, enjoy a panoramic view of Naples and then reach the haunting ruins of Pompeii, which will take you back to that fateful day in 79 AD when Vesuvius erupted, covering the prosperous Roman city in deadly volcanic ash.
You’ll start the day in Naples where you’ll have a short tour before heading up the Vomero Hill. The town looks out over the bay of Naples, the spectacular views stretch all the way to the Sorrento Peninsula and of course you’ll see Vesuvius dominating the landscape. After you’ve had a chance to admire the view you’ll make your way to the port of Mergellina where you’ll have the opportunity to walk down the pretty coastal road. At this point you’ll surely have worked up an appetite so you’ll head for lunch in the town of Ercolano. Here you’ll be surrounded by beautiful gardens that date back to 1700.
After a lovely lunch you’ll travel to Pompeii where you can use your skip the line tickets to gain priority access to this ancient city. Here you’ll be able to walk around the ruins and gain a glimpse into Roman life after the city was destroyed when Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD.
Following a busy day exploring Naples you’ll head back on the coach to Rome. Please note that, due to traffic restrictions, this excursion will end at the hotel or as close as possible.
