Description

Journey through time at the stunning archaeological site of Pompeii, and get a unique insight into life in the Roman Empire. Depart Rome and travel along the Highway of the Sun, admiring the countryside of Lazio and the Castelli Romani along the way. The first stop is in Naples. Explore this Mediterranean city which is famous for its rich history, art, culture, and gastronomy. Drive up the Vomero hill for a view over the town which overlooks the bay of Naples and extends from the Sorrento peninsula to the volcanic area of Phlegrean fields. The skyline is dominated by the majestic and still active volcano Vesuvius. This is the perfect spot to take photos of this stunning landmark. Driving down towards the port of Mergellina, travel south towards Mount Vesuvius and the town of Pompeii. Stop for a traditional Italian lunch, and then make your way to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pompeii. Get fast track entry on arrival with your skip-the-line tickets, and then spend the afternoon exploring this once thriving city, frozen in time by layers of volcanic ash in 79 AD. Buried under a layer of pumice stones and ash up to 19 to 23 feet (6 to 7 meters) deep for 17 centuries, Pompeii was able to survive the ravages of time and the destructive effects of climate and heavy weather. Resume your trip through the Roman countryside and enjoy the scenery as you make your way back to the city at a relaxed pace. Arrive in time to enjoy the rest of the night in Rome at your leisure.
