Naples: Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Mount Vesuvius Tour

1. Naples: Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Mount Vesuvius Tour

Following your tour pickup, you will make your way south to explore the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Stroll through the streets of the Roman city of Pompeii and check the numerous different UNESCO archaeological sites, such as the Herculaneum. Both archaeological sites feature the excavated ruins of alleyways and homes where you are free to explore. These locations are also fascinating in that archaeologists are still continuing to unearth the remains of a place forever locked in time. Following your exploration of the ruins, drive up to Mount Vesuvius, the volcano that destroyed Pompeii 2,000 years ago. You can stop to enjoy the view of the Bay of Naples from the top, as you enjoy a delicious lunch. If you are a hiking and history lover, this Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Mount Vesuvius tour is all you need.
