Naples: Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius, and Herculaneum Trip

3. Naples: Pompeii, Mount Vesuvius, and Herculaneum Trip

Explore Pompeii, with stops at Herculaneum and Mount Vesuvius. Choose whether or not you want a guide or you'd like to tour on your own. Enjoy convenient transportation to and from Naples. This trip includes local professional English-speaking private drivers. The ride on the crater of Vesuvius offers a spectacular panorama of the Bay of Naples with its islands. Vesuvius is an active volcano in continental Europe as well as one of the most studied and dangerous in the world due to its high population and its explosive characteristics, the highest peak is 1,281 meters. You can reach the crater with a 20/25 minute climbing walk. The crater entrance is included with an internal volcano guide, which is a 2-hour stop. Pompeii and Herculaneum are vast archaeological sites. Once a flourishing and sophisticated Roman city, Pompeii and Herculaneum were buried under meters of ash and pumice by the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. The site is constantly evolving thanks to the continuous excavations that offer new discoveries every year. A professional private guide inside is highly recommended to enhance your visit and get the most out of your trip. The guide is on request and will help you to skip the long lines at the ticket office as well, although this is not included in the tour price. On request, it is also possible to have a 1-hour lunch break in a family house to taste a set menu (all-inclusive) with traditional local food, drinks, wine, and desserts.
