Vesuvius where you will have a great experience sampling their unique wines born in the shadow of the volcano. 2 hours Pompeii Ruins (tickets and local licensed guide included): Visiting Pompeii is not like a museum , is as live again in an ancient roman commercial town of 3 Km. Buildings, temples, shops catched in the time of the eruption. Pompeii was an ancient Roman town near modern Naples, where the common people went on holidays at the time of the ancient Rome. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many ancient towns in the surrounding area, was mostly destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

The winery is perfectly located for a stop during a day trip of Pompeii and the volcanic crater on top of Mount Vesuvius. All guests visiting the winery are welcome to stay for an "Italian-style" tasting, held on the terrace overlooking the Mediterranean. Tasting menu includes: Antipasto appetizer with local products: salami, provolone cheese, 'casatiello' (a savory bread), and bruschetta with heirloom Piennolo tomatoes on bread baked in a wood-burning oven, paired with Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Bianco DOP (100% Caprettone), Rosato (100% Piedirosso), and Rosso (100% Piedirosso).

Volcano Crater important informations:

Vehicles do not go to the top of the volcano, but will drop you off at an altitude of around .62-miles (1,000-meters), the trail to the top climbs just under another 200m.walking

Please note that if weather conditions dont allow to trail to the top or in case of hostile weather condition, the driver will drop you off at an altitude of around 1000m were you will have time to enjoy the panoramic view and back to your accommodation in Rome. No refund is due

For most people in reasonable condition its no problem but if you are not 100% fit or have a medical problem you may want to take advice

The most common mistake by tourists is simply not to come prepared. Many turn up in tee-shirts not realizing its a lot colder at this altitude than on the coast and the wind can suddenly blow on the crater. You may need rain gear, hat, sneakers or climbing boots, sun screen and water, just be prepared

Wine Tasting: Minimum drinking age is 18 (will have soft drinks instead wine)

Travelers should have a moderate physical fitness level

This is a private tour/activity. Only your group will participate

Traveler Reviews

  • 29-Apr-2019

    This was a very memorable day for our family. I was worried that I had spent too much money on this tour but after pricing things out separately it was a fair deal.
    The day was fabulous! Our driver was prompt and thoughtful. We had a mozzarella tasting at a dairy. Delicious and unique. Kevin did a terrific job getting us around through narrow streets and up the volcano where there were lots of cars and chaos. We hiked up the volcano on a beautiful day with fabulous views. The lunch and wine tasting was delicious and it is my second time at cantina del Vesuvius. Great lunch! We had a wonderful tour of Pompeii wit Eduardo. Very fun and informative. My children who are in their twenties thought that this day was the best part of our trip.
    Thank-you for a great memory!
