A day to spent between archeology and history - skip the line included
THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED.
This tour includes a marvelous walk around the ancient roman city of Pompeii that has been buried from the ashes of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 a. D. I know, two hours are not enough to see the entire city, but believe me, I'll be able to show you most of the highlights!
A walk in Pompeii is a very intense experience; you'll have the feeling of wandering in a still alive town. I will explain you the history of the town and how the romans lived showing you all the most important public buildings and private houses.
Naples is a brilliant city on Italy's southwest cost of Italy; it's a mishmash of architectural styles, with elegant 18th-century palazzos, castles and wonderful churches.
The city, settled by the ancient greeks, was at one time the capital of southern Italy. Throughout the centuries romans, byzantines, arabs, normans, swabians and spanish bourbons also settled here.
