Itinerary

The tour can start to suit your cruise ship porting times.

THIS IS A PRIVATE TOUR

The tour begins at the port where you will meet the driver/guide and then make your way by mini coach over to Mount Vesuvius.  This is the only active volcano situated in mainland Europe.  The coach will take you within 1000 metres of the top of the volcano. From here, it is recommended to walk to the very top and admire the spectacular views across the bay.

You will see the slopes, once covered by vineyards and woodlands that provide a spectacular backdrop for the bustling town below.   This tour provides such a fabulous insight into ancient Roman history and archaeology, and combines two of the most important Roman cities in the Bay of Naples that were buried by Vesuvius in the year 79 AD.

You will also have the opportunity to see both aspects of roman civilization of 2000 years ago, the commercial centre of Pompeii and also the residential centre of Herculaneum.  On a fateful summer's day in 79 A.D., Mt. Vesuvius erupted, spewing volcanic ash over the prosperous city of Pompeii. Unaware of the imminent danger, most people continued on with their daily lives and as a result the entire town and around 20,000 of its inhabitants were buried under tons of ash and pumice.

Almost 2,000 years later, you have the opportunity to explore the site of this famous disaster and see the houses, streets and public buildings miraculously preserved by the volcanic ash.  You will be taken to fascinating places such as the Forum, Thermal Baths, Lupanare brothel and Vetti's House with its beautiful frescoes.

 

*You will have the option to choose whether to visit Pompeii or Herculaneum. Afther the Archaeological site visit, we will then drive to Mr Vesuvius.

  • Pick-up from the port
  • Drive to Pompeii or Herculaneum
  • Visit Pompeii or Herculaneum
  • Free time for snack/lunch (own cost)
  • Ride to the entrance of the National Park
  • Mt Vesuvius Hike
