This Naples shore trip is a must for die-hard fans of Roman Antiquity. You explore the famous Archaeological Museum of Naples and also the ancient ruins at the site of Pompeii.
After meeting your guide you travel through the large, bustling city of Naples to the museum, which is often mentioned among the most important archaeological museums in Europe. Your professional guide will help bring the treasures alive. You will enjoy the bronzes, marbles, paintings and furnishings found in the excavations at Pompeii and Herculaneum.
Next you visit Pompeii where your guide will lead you though the site explaining in detail the events that took place here. Pompeii was once a major port, as well as a center of wealth and politics. When Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, the city was almost instantly buried beneath 30 feet of volcanic ash and cinder. A huge part of the bay was also filled in with debris during the disaster, leaving the ruined metropolis some distance from today's shoreline.
This ancient site is perhaps the most famous archaeological excavation in the world. Buried for 1,700 years, the town has been resurrected and presents a clear picture of daily life in ancient Roman times. At the height of its influence, 20,000 people lived in Pompeii, and it is estimated that 2,000 of them perished instantly when volcanic ash rained down on the city.
At the end of the tour at Pompeii you return to Naples.
