UNESCO Jewels: Pompeii and its Ruins

Discover the beauty of Naples and visit Pompeii, one of the world’s most fascinating archaeological sites, on a full-day excursion from Rome. Join us on tour to have a full immersion back to the Roman times visiting ancient buildings, bakeries and Temples and admiring priceless frescoes and mosaics.

The first stop is Naples, one of the most enchanting cities in the Mediterranean famous worldwide for its rich history, art, culture and gastronomy, where you will take a short panoramic tour to discover its beauty from the comfort of your coach climbing up the Vomero hill. The town overlooks the bay of Naples which extends from the Sorrento peninsula to vulcanic area of Phlegrean fields, and the skyline is dominated by the majestic and still active volcano Vesuvius, offering an impressive sight perfect to take stunning pictures.

Descending towards the port of Mergellina, you will leave the city and travel south toward Mount Vesuvius, to reach the town of Ercolano where we will stop for lunch. The restaurant is in a first class hotel in Herculaneum, situated in a marvelous environment and surrounded by wonderful gardens dating back to 1700. Then head to Pompeii and Skip the Line to one of the most important archaeological sites in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Through the remains and ruins of this ancient city you will learn how the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD destroyed the city, killing its inhabitants and burying it under tons of ash. The site was lost for about 1,500 years until its initial rediscovery and the objects beneath the city have been well-preserved for centuries. So you can walk along the ancient streets for a glimpse into the lives of the Romans, discovering ancient houses, bakeries and shops and imagine the everyday life in the Roman times. At the end of the visit we will return to the coach for our trip back to Rome.
