Full description
After being picked up from the meeting point in Positano, transfer by minibus to Pompeii. Upon arrival, enjoy a 2-hour visit to the excavation site with your official guide. Learn about how due to its burial under a layer of ashes and lapilli, the town was forgotten for hundreds of years until its excavations in the 18th-century.

After the visit, make the most of some free time and stop for lunch. In the early afternoon, continue to Mt. Vesuvius. Ride a bus up to 1000 meters above sea-level and then take a 30-minute walk. Once on the rim, meet an alpine guide who will give you information about the history of the crater. Take in the breath-taking views of the entire Gulf of Naples. Return to Positano during the afternoon.
