What to Expect
Join us on this amazing journey through space and time, entering in Pompeii: a unique document of Greco-Roman life.
We will begin our journey down the “Highway of the Sun”, passing through the famous Roman countryside, Castelli Romani. Our first stop is Naples, a world-renowned city home to incredible views of the Mediterranean, Mount Vesuvius, and countless historic sites.You will enjoy a short sight of the City, the seashore and the gulf of Naples.
After stopping for a traditional Italian lunch, we will make our way to the UNESCO Archaeological Site of Pompeii with Skip the Line Tickets. We will spend the afternoon exploring this once thriving city that was frozen in time by layers of volcanic ash. Pompeii remained buried under a layer of pumice stones and ash 19 to 23 feet (6 to 7 metres) deep. The city’s sudden burial served to protect it for the next 17 centuries from vandalism, looting and the destructive effects of climate and heavy weather.
After our tour of Pompeii, we will resume our trip through the Roman countryside, enjoying the scenery as we leisurely make our way back to Rome. Return in time to enjoy the rest of the night in Rome at your leisure.
