This tour starts early in the morning, where the bus leaves for Pompeii. 1½ hours after leaving Rome, we will be able to see The Abbey of Montecassino, noted for its famous battle and complete destruction during the Second World War.
After another 1½ hour drive, we will arrive in Naples where we will proceed towards The Hill of Posillipo from where we can enjoy one of the most spectacular views of The Gulf of Naples and the volcano Vesuvius. Descending towards the port of Mergellina and following the coastal road, we will arrive in the ancient fishing quarter of Santa Lucia and see the impressive Castel dell’Ovo.
The brief 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 Maschio Angioino.
Upon leaving the city, we will then 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 will stop for lunch.
Next we'll visit the excavations on foot with a local guide on an archaeological journey through the ancient city. You will see the remains of Pompeii when it 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 their last moments before the city was so disastrously buried.
At the end of the visit to Pompeii we will return to the coach for an approximately 3 hours trip back to Rome.
