Shore Excursion to Pompeii and Vesuvius
Your guide will be waiting for you at your port of arrival, holding a sign with your name on it.
Pompeii, one of the most stunning archaeological sites in the world is like an open air museum. You will be taken back in time and will discover a city that was hustling and bustling until 79 A.D. when mount Vesuvius buried it underneath mounts of ashes and silenced the people and the most flourishing of all commercial port towns! After a typical Pizza, you move on to explore Mount Vesuvius, the giant volcano dominating the Bay of Naples. Drive up 3,000 feet through the old crater and then make the final 20-30 minute hike up to the top, zigzagging along a path of volcanic gravel. Once at the summit, peer into the 700ft deep and 2000ft wide crater of the Vesuvius and take in unparalleled view of the Peninsula of Sorrento and the islands Capri, Ischia, and Procida.
