Pompeii & Herculaneum


The perfect day tour between History, Art, Archeology and local flavours
Spend a day surrounded by most interesting parts of the local history and suggestive ruins visiting the archaeological sites of the buried towns Pompeii and Herculaneum and climbing up the awesome volcano that caused their destruction more than 2000 years ago, from where you can have a clear view of Naples and Sorrento coast and enjoy the experience of having lunch in local restaurant on the foot of the Volcano.

Pompeii was an ancient Roman commercial centre that was submerged by the ashes after the destructive eruption of the 79 A.D. of the Volcano Mount Vesuvio. Today Pompei is not fully discovered, but offers to its visitors a pretty complete image of the lifestyle of the time, with the Forum, the streets of the old market, the Thermal area and the Villas. In addition to the to archaeological charm of the site, it can be actually seen the magnificence of the roman art thanks to the, incredibly well preserved, frescoes found in the Villas. This town shows a piece of past from a very fascinating historical period and it can’t be missed!

Herculaneum was an ancient Roman town, an holiday village by the sea for wealthy romans, famous for the fishing and suggestive vineyards, as Pompei was buried by the eruption of the Volcano Mount Vesuvio in 79 A.D. but in a different way.
As a matter of fact volcaninc ashes didn’t fall on the town but it was hit by a such high temperatures blast that it carbonised items in the city, this is why we can admire houses almost intact and see highly degradable materials like wood, furniture and papyrus. Today in Herculaneum is possible to admire incredibly well adorned houses, with amazing frescoes that will enchat you and bring you back to the fast of the ancient Romans.
Nearby, in the area we will take a lunch in a local winery that allows you to discover the typical flavors and wines of naples region
