Do not miss this day trip, departing from Naples, which will allow you to explore two extraordinary places of the Campania region: the ancient Roman city of Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius, the volcano that erupted in 79 AD, submerging with his ashes several towns including precisely Pompeii.
With the transfer service, included in the tour, you will leave from the center of Naples by bus to Pompeii: there you will meet your guide who will accompany you on a walk through the ruins of the ancient Roman city, perfectly preserved by the eruption of Vesuvius that in 79 AD submerged it up to 10 meters. Visiting amphitheaters, gymnasiums and markets of Pompeii, you will relive the ancient and fascinating story of this city, doomed to be destroyed by a natural disaster.
After the guided tour of Pompeii, you will visit a typical manufacturing laboratory of cameos and coral, and you will have the opportunity to see the working process of the artisans, and to buy the products. After the visit, you will go into a typical restaurant, a short walk from the lab, where you can eat having lunch with local products
After lunch, you will reach the slopes of Vesuvius, where you will meet your guide who will take you to explore this impressive volcano. You will be accompanied along a lovely nature trail, surrounded by greenery and pure air. Then you will arrive to the top to admire the enormous crater and the breathtaking views of the Gulf of Naples.
At the end of the excursion you will return to Naples by bus.
