Prestige Tour Pompeii & Vesuvius ~ Full Day
Join the only day trip from Rome that brings you up to the top of Mt. Vesuvius, hike to the crater, and enjoy a fantastic view of the bay of Naples below. Discover Pompeii and the active Volcano that brought the bustling Roman city to its terrible end. Transfer from Rome in an air-conditioned coach, begin our day high above the city and bay of Naples – on the ridge of the crater of the famous Mount Vesuvius. Infamous for the destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79AD, and still erupting to this day, lava flows are visible on the winding road up to the top. Take the 20 minute uphill hike to the crater – the view from the top is well worth it. After, we’ll break for lunch where you can experience Naples’ world-famous pizza. Next, on to Pompeii…Pompeii was once a sprawling metropolis of shops and residences, restaurants, gyms and brothels. Walk the main streets, visit the forum, as well as view the plaster death casts of the victims – frozen forever in time at their last second of life. Discover why this UNESCO World Heritage Site continues to shock and fascinate the 2.6 million people who venture here each year.
NOTE: The hike up to the crater of Vesuvius is optional and requires a good level of general fitness to complete. The hike is uphill at a 14 degree angle and 20 minutes long, comfortable clothes and shoes are recommended. Due to inclement weather sometimes the crater may be closed, in this case we will offer an extended tour inside Pompeii which will recover any time we would have spent on Vesuvius.
IMPORTANT: Headsets, entrance fees to Pompeii and Vesuvius, and “Pizza” in Pompeii, are included in tour price.
