Your exclusive Volcano Pompeii day tour begins with an approx. 30 minute drive (traffic pending) in the comfort of a private deluxe vehicle. During the journey your expert driver/guide provides running commentaries about the places you see and the venues you visit. Meet your local guide at the awe inspiring archaeological area of Pompeii. Enjoy a guided tour of Pompeii top sights. Learn about life in ancient Rome and how the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius created this amazing city frozen in time. Walk down the old Roman high streets just as the Romans did. On August 24th in 79 AD a massive volcanic eruption destroyed the city. Tons of lava instantly petrified the bodies of 2000 of its inhabitants. This natural preservation provides an intimate look into the Roman private life in ancient times. Today two thirds of the city has been excavated and the ruins of a flourishing civilization have been brought to life again. Because of the airtight conditions beneath the lava Pompeii is the most well-preserved ancient city in the world with streets and buildings providing detailed information of the living conditions of the Romans.

At the end of your guided tour say goodbye to your Pompeii guide. Travel towards the Mt Vesuvius, the famous volcano that earned its reputation from a series of deadly eruptions that culminated in the destruction of Pompeii. Your ride up Mt. Vesuvius National Park begins with the slow trip up the windy road up the hill until the parking lot to the crater. When you reach a level of about 3000 feet above sea level you come to the end of the road. To hike to the top of the Mt Vesuvius you must leave the vehicle behind here and take an approx. 30 minute upward hike of moderate difficulty to the crater edge which reaches approximately 3800 feet above sea level and another 25 minute back down. However, from the top the panoramic views over the Bay of Naples and fresh air are well worth the effort! At the end of your exclusive Volcano Pompeii day tour return back to your hotel.  Contact us for your exclusive Pompeii and Volcano private day trip.
