Naples - Pompeii



A journey to discover art, history, folklore and archeology in one of the most typical regions of southern Italy.

From Hotel: 6.30/7.15 am
From Agency: 7.30 am

Leaving Rome in southerly direction you take the “Highway of the Sun” crossing the fertile Roman countryside and the area known as “Castelli Romani”. Approximately halfway along the highway you will be able to see the Benedictin Abbey of Montecassino, noted for the famous battle and its complete destruction during the Second World War. Descending towards the port of Mergellina and following the coastal road, we arrive in the ancient fishing quarter of Santa Lucia and see the impressive Castel dell’Ovo (photo stop). The city tour continues crossing the historical centre to see Piazza del Plebiscito, the Royal Palace, the Basilica of San Francesco di Paola, the San Carlo Opera House, the Gallery of Umberto I and the imposing of Maschio Angioino. Upon leaving the city, we cross the fertile valley of Mount Vesuvius, passing the towns of Ercolano, Torre del Greco and Torre Annunziata before finally arriving at Pompeii, where we stop first for lunch. After that we will visit the excavations on foot with a local guide on an archeological journey through the ancient city. In approx. 2 hours you will see some of what has been discovered in more than 1.700 years since Pompeii was covered by ashes during the eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79 AD. Through the remains and ruins of this ancient city, we can picture the everyday life of the Imperial Age and imagine the panic felt by the people in those last few minutes before the city was so disastrously buried. At the end of the visit to Pompeii we will return to the coach for a journey of approx. 3 hours back to Rome. During this excursion we will visit a coral o cameo factory where we will have the opportunity to admire and purchase items of this ancient craft that dates back to Greek times.
USEFUL INFORMATION: We suggest that you wear comfortable clothes and shoes for this excursion, and to wear sunglasses and sun hat in the summer months. From April 1st to October 31st the guide will give you earphones for the visit of the excavations.
