Ancient Pompeii

Duration: 4 1/2 hours

Tour Code: NAP-004

After a scenic drive along the Bay of Naples, you will arrive at remarkable Pompeii at the foot of Mt. Vesuvius. The excavated ruins of Pompeii are considered one the finest representations of an Italian city at the height of the Roman Empire. Walking through the city, which was buried in ash from the devastating volcanic eruption in 79 A.D., you will gain great insight into what ancient life must have been like here. Time seems frozen, as you observe the eerie plaster casts of numerous victims, who are caught in their final moment of life. Now a World Heritage Site, Pompeii is filled with aristocratic villas, temples and a forum, which was the heart of the city. This coastal area has thrived for centuries, and much of its lure is natural beauty, which you will see on the return trip, which passes the seaside resorts of Castellamare and Sorrento. On the way, you will stop at shop that sells fine cameo jewelry.
