Our English-speaking drivers will wait for you at the quayside of the port of Naples, brandishing a sign with your name on it. After welcoming you, the tour will begin.
Our English-speaking drivers will drive you to Pompeii. Once you have left the port you will proceed towards ancient Pompeii: considered the best Roman archaeological site destroyed by Vesuvius in the eruption of 79 AD.
An estimated 2 hours should be adequate for a good visit of the site.
Afterwards we will head for Mount Vesuvius, taking a steep uphill road. The crater is reached on foot, at 1,282m above sea level, approx. 30 -40 mins. Its most famous eruption is that of 24 August 79AD, in which Pompei; Herculaneum and Oplontis were destroyed.
The UNESCO has renamed Vesuvius: "World Reserve of the Biosphere".
After the visit to Mount Vesuvius we will drive towards ancient Herculaneum. The discovery of Herculaneum dates back to1709 when the Austrian Prince Elboeuf, commissioned a well to be dug in his garden. In 1738 King Carlo di Borbone ordered the first official excavations – aimed at revealing the magnificent city which still remains partially buried under the modern urban town. The Villa dei Papiri is a fine example as it is only reached by a narrow underground tunnel.
Again approx. 2 hours are required to visit this site.
At the end of this wonderful day out you will be driven back to your ship.
