Pompeii And Mt. Vesuvius Day Trip

Description of the Experience

Travel back in time to a day in 79 AD when the volcanic Mount Vesuvius violently erupted, covering the everyday Roman town of Pompeii in molten ash. This full-day tour from Rome takes you to both sites, interrupted only to enjoy a pizza lunch. If you partake in this activity between March and October, start with a climb to the summit of Vesuvius. It is a 20-minute walk from the parking area, traveling through soft volcanic ash and pumice. Vesuvius has erupted many times since 79 AD, and lava flows have scarred the sides, stripping away vegetation to leave a visible reminder of the destructive power of nature. But you will be rewarded with stunning views into the crater, where even now steam escapes from its vents. Look too at the panoramic vistas of the Bay of Naples.  If you have chosen to take this tour between Mid-November 2017 and March 2018, visit the Archaeological Museum of Pompeii instead of Vesuvius.  Enjoy a leisurely lunch break and try some of Naples’s world-famous pizza. Then, drive to Pompeii, nestled in the shadow of Vesuvius. The town was once a sprawling metropolis of shops, luxury residences, restaurants, bathhouses, and brothels. You will walk its streets, following in the footsteps of its residents, some of whom are immortalized in startling plaster casts at the precise moment of their death. Your amigo will provide a historic commentary about the ruins, telling a terrible tale of the day it was destroyed and bringing the remarkable site back to life. Sites Visited Vesuvius ‘Great Crater’ (March 2017 – Mid-November 2017 only), Archeological Museum of Pompei (Mid-November 2017 – March 2018).
