A journey to discover art, history, folklore, and archaeology in one of the most typical regions of southern Italy.
Leaving Rome in a southerly direction, we take the “Highway of the Sun” crossing the fertile Roman countryside. Reaching the city of Naples, we cross the fertile valley of Mount Vesuvius, before finally arriving at Pompeii. Here you will visit the excavations on foot with a professional guide on an archaeological journey through the ancient city. In approx. 2 hours you will see some of what has been discovered in more than 1,700 years since Pompeii was covered by ashes during the eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79 AD. Through the remains and ruins of this ancient city, we can picture the everyday life of the Imperial Age and imagine the panic felt by the people in those last few minutes before the city was so disastrously buried. At the end of the visit to Pompeii, you will have lunch in a typical restaurant.
After lunch, you will have a small panoramic tour of Naples. Descending towards the port of Mergellina and following the coastal road, we arrive in the ancient fishing quarter of Santa Lucia and see the impressive Castel dell’Ovo where you can have a photo stop. The city tour continues crossing the historical centre to see Piazza del Plebiscito, the Royal Palace, the Basilica of San Francesco di Paola, the San Carlo Opera House, the Gallery of Umberto I and the imposing Maschio Angioino.
You will also have the opportunity to climb along the slopes of the Vesuvius Volcano by following the path to the crater which culminates with the arrival at the Gran Cone. The excursion is not particularly tiring, it is suitable for everyone and does not require specific trekking preparation. The path to be followed has a total length of almost 4 km between the outward and return journeys, with a difference in height of about 140 meters and an average gradient of 14% up to the maximum altitude of 1,170 meters above sea level. After the excursion, we will return to Rome.
