You cannot miss the chance to join a full day excursion to Pompei and Herculaneum where you will discover these popular archaeological sites. Pompeii rises on a plateau of Mount Vesuvius lava, overlooking the Sarno river valley. The city was destroyed by the eruption of the Volcano Vesuvius in 79 AD, but remainings of the Roman civilization were rediscovered in the 16th century and its exploration began in 1748 under the kingdom of Charles III of Bourbon. Thanks to the ash and lava, that petrified the city preserving all the “valley”, and it’s still possible to admire the buildings that founded the city. Walking through the streets of Pompei and Herculaneum is a surreal experience. 

The tour highlights: 
  • Exploring the ancient Roman city of Pompeii
  • Visiting Herculaneum
  • Learn about Mount Vesuvius and its famous eruption in 79 AD
  • Selected tour for the maximum of 19 passengers

This Pompeii and Herculaneum tour will be guided by our guide who will walk you through the maze of ancient Cardini and Decumani that link the most significant edifices of the city; the Forum that was the city’s main square, the Basilica dedicated to administering justice and for business negotiations, Roman’s Villas, the Baths and much more… The walk will last about 2 hours. 

For lunchtime, we will stop in a local restaurant to taste a delicious Neapolitan meal. In the second part of the excursion, you will visit Herculaneum. The town was submerged under a torrent of mud and lava that hardened into a soft tufa that preserved many of the wooden parts of houses and household objects which can be seen today in a perfect state of preservation. 

This select tour is for a maximum of 19 passengers and guarantees a more dedicated service to every visitor. You could ask to the guide more information and dispel any curiosity you may have during the tour.
