The priceless treasures of Pompeii and Vesuvius await you on this excursion departing from Amalfi. A full day in the company of your accredited and expert guide who will take you for a walk in time starting from 79 AD, the year of the eruption of Vesuvius.
You must have heard of it in school books or from friends who have already had the good fortune to visit it but Pompeii with its tragic past and its timeless charm deserves a visit in person at least once in a lifetime. Choose this one-day guided tour to discover the ancient city and Mount Vesuvius. Listen to their history, secrets and take countless souvenir photos. And more! Admire the skill of the craftsmen at work for the creation of cameos and carved corals, typical local crafts.
Your journey back in time will begin in Amalfi when you join your local and official guide and board the minibus towards Pompeii. Along the way you will be able to admire the main towns of the Amalfi Coast and the magnificent surrounding natural landscape. Once you arrive at your destination, don't worry about possible queues, the tour includes handy skip-the-line tickets. Rather, get ready to get excited as you will have the opportunity to explore one of the most important archaeological sites in history and best preserved in Europe.
The Roman city of Pompeii, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was engulfed by the lava and ash erupted by Vesuvius in 79 AD. The eruption buried (and thus preserved intact) under a blanket of pyroclastic materials everything it encountered: buildings, roads and all the people who were unable to escape. A huge tragedy which however allowed us to rediscover the city largely crystallized over time. You can thus fully immerse yourself in the daily life of the greatest empire of antiquity, stroll the streets, visit the houses, the spas, the squares. You can admire paintings, mosaics, furnishings and many other finds. Among the most interesting buildings and spaces are: the forum, the granaries, the Stabian baths, the house of Menandro and the Teatro Grande. Keep your camera with you and immortalize the beauty of the colors and paintings. Your official guide will also tell you anecdotes, curiosities and will allow you to relive the ancient and fascinating events of this city.
Once the visit of Pompeii has ended and you have had time to have lunch on your own, you will get back on board your minibus to head towards the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. Together with your trained guide and an official guide of the National Park you will be accompanied along a unique and enchanting nature trail until you reach the top of the mountain from which you will enjoy an incomparable view of the huge crater and the entire Gulf of Naples. You will enjoy the quiet and beauty of a path surrounded by pristine greenery and fresh, clean air. Once you have finished the excursion, you will get back on board your minivan to return to Amalfi.
