FULL DESCRIPTION

Discover history, art and archaeology on this fascinating day trip to Naples and Pompeii, from Rome. Your journey takes you from Rome to the Gulf of Naples, where Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 A.D., destroying the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum. On your full-day tour from Rome you'll drive down the “Highway of the Sun”, crossing the area known as Castelli Romani, dotted with enchanting medieval villages. During the journey you will pass the ruined Abbey of Monte Cassino, destroyed during the Second World War. We arrive in Pompeii to visit the famous excavations at about 10:00 am. A thrilling archaeological journey unfolds as you walk through the ancient ruins which were buried in ashes, after Mount Vesuvius erupted almost 2,000 years ago. On the way back, we drive to Naples, surrounded by a breathless panorama from Posillipo, the highest spot in Naples. You can stop for an optional lunch in one of the many waterfront restaurants along the bay serving excellent fresh fish (just caught!), and shopping in the many small shops offering local products from Naples. After stopping off for a photo at Naples' impressive Castel dell'Ovo, you'll continue through Naples' historic center, passing through the most beautiful historic sights, including the Royal Palace, Basilica of San Francesco di Paola, San Carlo Opera House, Gallery of Umberto I and the majestic Castel Nuovo. Finally, we drive back to Rome.
