THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR NEEDS AND REQUESTS.
This tour is dedicated to whom are interested in visiting the ancient Pompeii and the Volcano that caused its burial.
The thriving Roman city met its fate in 79 A. D. , when Mount Vesuvius erupted. The volcanic ash from Mt. Vesuvius buried the entire town with many of its inhabitants.
Pompeii today is a site unlike any other in Italy, it is a complete ancient city that you can explore just as if you were walking through it 2, 000 years ago.
The tour starts with two hours guided tour at Pompeii with me.
Lunch break in a typical Italian restaurant tasting some good wine and some traditional dishes.
After lunch the driver will take you at the Mount Vesuvius.
A 20 minutes walk is needed to reach the highest part of the crater, where local guides are waiting that can give visitors a short guidance (included in the cost of the ticket). Half hour guidance at the crater with the volcanological guide
You'll enjoy a stunning view of the Bay of Naples!

Our family (two adults, three kids) thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Pompeii and Vesuvius. We could have wandered around Pompeii all day and not have learned what we were able to learn in two hours with Emiliano. He is very knowledgable and friendly. And taking the combination tour, together with the high speed train from Rome, was a great way to see both Pompeii and Vesuvius in a day trip. Seems expensive, but is actually a great value. Certainly enabled the five of us to maximize that vacation day!
