Overview

The bond between Pompeii ruins and the volcano that buried it is indissoluble. This tour is a journey far back in time, almost surreal, between a city that ceased its existence in a matter of few hours and the mountain that caused its end. In the morning you will be visiting the ruins of Pompeii preserved almost intact for centuries. Stop to a local factory to learn more about the process of Cameos and Corals craft. After lunch, visit at the crater of Vesuvius, a still active volcano, listed by Unesco as a Biosphere World Reserve. The tour manager will meet you by the nearest pick-up point to your accommodation between 08:00 and 09:00 am (see timetable) and this tour will last approximately 8 hours in total. Check our full list of complimentary scheduled pick up points, or provide us your lodging address and we will arrange it for you.

Know More about this tour

Pompeii was a town that disappeared from the maps and from peoples memories as it got completely buried under the ashes erupted by the volcano in 79 AD. That dramatic day ended the lives of an entire bustling city to only come unearthed many centuries later. These ruins give an incredible picture of ancient romans daily life and their original urban setting: homes, shops, frescoes, thermal baths, mosaics and much more.

Included in this tour there is a stop to a Cameos and Corals workshop, to learn more about this ancient art-craft, for which the Neapolitan school is still considered of great importance. Cameos in particular are carved sea shells representing scenes of mythological deities.

Lunch to a local restaurant.

Continue this tour to the top of for a short hike to the volcanos crater. The national park of Mt. Vesuvius is listed as UNESCO biosphere reserve and it is composed by the caldera of Mt. Somma and the Grand Cone of Mt. Vesuvius. In other words, a mountain into another mountain, aka the pre-existing one got its top blown away forming a new one. There is a long history of studies on the colonization of lava by vegetation throughout different epochs. The traditional agricultural areas are diverse in fruit, vines and flowers. It became sadly famous for its eruptions in 79 AD, the deadliest of recent history. Last eruption took place in 1944, in the middle of WWII and today it is considered a dormant volcano.
