Journey back in time with a beautiful journey south through the Roman countryside to the much-treasured lost city of Pompeii and discover ancient fishing villages, volcanoes and iconic city sights along the way!
The ancient city of Pompeii sits close to Naples, in the shadow of the imposing Mount Vesuvius. Following an historic volcanic eruption, the city was lost beneath a blanket of ash for nearly 2000 years, with the ash serving to preserve the city, and its inhabitants, in intricate detail. It gives you the unique chance to truly see what Italian life was like so many years ago and is an immensely thought-provoking excursion that will emblazon precious memories on your heart.
This day excursion by bus first takes you on a glorious journey along the Highway of the Sun, which links Rome and Naples. You will pass by beautiful countryside scenes and also the Abbey of Montecassino before reaching the ancient fishing quarter of Santa Lucia near the heart of Naples, where you can marvel at the impressive Castel dell’Ovo. You will then be treated to a city tour of Naples, taking in iconic sights such as the Royal Palace and Piazza del Plebiscito. During the tour, you’ll be able to take in stunning views of Mount Vesuvius and, as the journey continues to Pompeii, you will be treated to views of the towns of Ercolano, Torre del Greco and Torre Annunziata.
