What you will visit:
The eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. was a monumental natural disaster that killed thousands and entombed the city of Pompeii. A visit to this UNESCO World Heritage Site is an opportunity to view a moment in time preserved for more than 2,000 years in this lost city uncovered from deep beneath the ash. Known as a vacation community for high society, Pompeii was a thriving enclave with an amphitheater, shops, a gymnasium and an aqueduct that delivered water for irrigation, fountains and private baths. Some of the ruins are remarkably preserved detailed mosaics and frescos adorning the interiors of wealthy homeowners' villas. A walk among the ruins paints a picture of daily Roman life in pristine detail. This tour uses a special path with a paved surface that is accessible to wheelchairs.
What you will see along the way:
From Naples, it's a 45-minute drive to Pompeii, where the distinctive outline of Mt. Vesuvius will come into view.
