Mt. Vesuvius - Vesuvius Vineyard - Herculaneum
The Vesuvius is a very important and interesting Volcano for the history of Italy and for the branch of Volcanology. It is part of the mountain chain "Vesuvio - Somma" and its highness is 1281 meters.
The vineyard is located near the based of Mt. Vesuvius and approximately a 15 minute drive from Pompeii.
This farm is located in Trecase - in the province of Naples on the slopes of Vesuvius in a famous archaeological area at the center of the polygon defined by the ancient city of Pompeii, Oplontis, Stabia.
The eruption of the Vesuvius that destroyed Pompeii in 79 D. C. hit the city of Herculaneum too with a flow of dirt and lava. But unlike Pompeii, the city of Herculaneum preserved wooden buildings and any sort of goods. So for archeological studies is a very important place.
Mt. Vesuvius - Wine Tasting - Herculaneum
We are driving up in the National Park of Vesuvius, with extraordinary views of the Bay of Naples. Once at 3000 ft. You will leave the vehicle to climb up on foot (25 minutes) to the very top. In the Parking area, a café is available for those not willing to walk up.
You can decide to have a special wine tasting on the slope of Mt. Vesuvius (Optional)
At last we come to Herculaneum, which is smaller but better preserved than Pompeii and very pleasant because less visitors come here. This visit here will take about 1. 5 hours.
