This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Pompeii Archaeological Park, Porta Marina (via Villa dei Misteri), 80045 Pompeii Italy

Guided walking tour inside the ruins with an expert local guide.
The mysterious ruins of ancient Pompeii offer such an immersive travel and overwhelming experience like no other archaeological site in the whole world. Let yourself feel like a Pompeii inhabitant, walk down ancient streets and stroll around millennia-old houses, temples, shops, cafes, amphitheatres and the Stabian baths. You can also admire the Antiquarium Forum, Casa dei Vettii, Villa of the Mysteries, the frescos of the Lupanare, the Macellum and the Basilica. Pompeii was not simply blown away by the Vesuvius eruption in 79 A.D., but buried under layers of debris, ashes and mud, as well. The result is the priceless value of this UNESCO site and a well-preserved slice of ancient Roman life.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Vesuvius National Park, Via Palazzo del Principe, 80044 Ottaviano Italy

We will stop in a local winery for enjoying a light lunch and wine tasting.

Next hike the volcano that destroyed Pompeii. Painted over the centuries by various artists, Mt. Vesuvius is the natural landmark of the Bay of Naples. Mount Vesuvius is one of the most attractive volcanos in the world. It is internationally renowned for the 79 A.D. eruption, which destroyed the Roman cities of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Oplontis and Stabiae. From a distance, the Vesuvius seems to be harmless but when the brave tourist approaches near its crater, he feels the power of the “big Giant”. Departing from Pompeii, you will reach an altitude of 1000 meters, and from the parking area you will reach the crater following a trekking path that usually takes 30 minutes. Once there, enjoy the breathtaking view of the Bay of Naples.
