Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

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

Submerged by a pile of lava and ash during the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, the city has become one of the major tourist attractions in Italy.
Visiting the excavations of Pompeii one gets the impression that time has stopped at the moment of the eruption, thanks also to the casts of the victims’ bodies that make these places even more suggestive.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Parco Acheologico di Ercolano, Corso Resina, 187, 80056 Ercolano Italy

Destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, together with Pompeii, it is the only example in the world of an ancient city where entire wooden structures of the houses have remained intact. Smaller than Pompeii, it has been preserved over time thanks to the volcanic mud that protected the ruins.

Duration: 1 hour

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

With its approximately 1300 meters of height, Vesuvius is known throughout the world for having destroyed, with its eruption, numerous cities including Pompeii and Herculaneum.
What not everyone knows, however, is that this volcano is very important for the Neapolitan people, as typical local products are obtained from its very fertile soil, including wine, “lacrima Christi” and piennolo tomatoes.

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
