Full description
The excavations of Pompeii are still ongoing, providing fascinating resources from the ancient Roman Empire's time. After a visit to the "Roman Villas" with their original frescoes, bathhouses and other public buildings, there is some free time for lunch.

Then, the driver will take you to an altitude of 1,000 meters up on the volcano, from where you can walk to the crater. From here you will witness the marvellous scenery from Mount Vesuvius which dominates the Bay of Naples.

The slopes are covered with vineyards and woods and provide an innocent-looking backdrop for the bustling town below.
