Mt.Vesuvius - Vineyard for a Wine Tasting - Pompeii
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, Herculaneum.
The old city of Pompeii is located at the base of the Vesuvius and was flourish during the Period of the Roman Empire. After the eruptions of the Volcano in 79 A. D the city has been destroyed and covered by ashes and lapillus. The Archeological dig started in VIII century and in three centuries only 3/5 part of the city has been discovered. Now the city has declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO and, every year, about 3, 000, 000 tourists come to visit.
Mt. Vesuvius -Wine Tasting - Pompeii
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.
I suggest after the walk on the volcano we take a lunch break on the way down to Herculaneum. Several places for a good pizza are available.
You can decide to have a special wine tasting on the slope of Mt. Vesuvius (Optional)
From your location we will first head to Pompeii. The visit in Pompeii will take approx 2 hours and it will be tuned onto people's desires and physical attitudes.
