What you can expect
Travel from Rome to one of the most famous archaeological sites, the incredible ancient city of Pompeii, where you will enjoy a Skip-the-Line access, in a comfortable air-conditioned private coach, entertained all the way by your expert English-speaking tour leader.
The eruption in AD 79 spelled a fiery end for Pompeii, but the catastrophe also almost perfectly preserved the port city under layers of Volcanic ash. Thousands of years later, you can still explore the eerie streets and step inside homes, bathhouses, fast food places and outdoor theatres. As you walk independently, it won’t be difficult to imagine the hustle and bustle of this once-busy port town!
After visiting the site at your own pace, you can relax and enjoy lunch at one the nice spots suggested by your tour leader.
Our day trip doesn’t end here, a short coach ride to Naples, the beautiful “city by the bay”. Naples sits in an incredible natural context crowned by Mt. Vesuvius, continental Europe’s only active volcano, the islands of Capri and Ischia, not to mention this ancient city’s baroque domes and architecture.
You’ll have ample free time to walk around the city centre, to take in the atmosphere of this buzzing city, with its iconic Castle Nuovo, also called Maschio Angioino, one of the symbols of the city, the famous Umberto I Gallery, an art deco masterpiece of glass and iron, the monumental Plebiscito Square, where you may want to savour an authentic Neapolitan coffee or some of the delicious local pastries, while watching the world go by.
