Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your motorcoach at the pier for the approximate 45-minute drive to the ruins of Pompeii, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The eruption of Vesuvius was a monumental natural disaster that killed thousands and entombed the city, yet preserved a moment in time more than 2,000 years.

At the Pompeii ruins, you'll discover the archeological excavations of a lost city buried deep beneath the ash from Mt. Vesuvius. Explore the grounds on this 2-hour guided tour of the city. Entering by the gate, your guided walking tour takes in the city's baths, villas, theaters and wrestling grounds. Plaster casts mark the positions of the fallen that were swiftly overcome by volcanic ash. The highlights include stunning frescoes and elaborately detailed mosaic-inlaid floors decorating interiors of wealthy homeowners' villas, as Pompeii was known as a vacation community for high society. A highlight of this tour will be a visit to the Pompeii Amphitheatre, where you'll learn about the Gladiatorial combats and other entertainment, which took place here.

Your knowledgeable guide will point out the remarkably preserved remains that hint at daily Roman life-their customs, buildings and cuisine; how they entertained, decorated and lived. Afterward enjoy 30 minutes of free time outside Pompeii excavations to see a Cameo Factory and for a soft drink or ice cream at a local bar.

On your 30-minute drive back to Naples, you'll have time to reflect on the spectacular ruins of Pompeii as you return to your awaiting ship.
