Spend a fascinating and educational day visiting the ancient Roman cities of Herculaneum and Pompeii. Explore these extremely well-preserved ancient towns and then drive to the top of the very volcano that destroyed them nearly 2,000 years ago, and yet rendered them eternal. This full-day tour provides a unique opportunity to experience how ancient Romans lived and admire the level of civic progress and artistic skills they had reached. After the fall of the Roman Empire such levels of achievement were not reached again until the 17th and 18th centuries. The route that takes you to the top of Mount Vesuvius passes through a national park of unusual beauty. See pine forests, lush wooded areas, bright yellow flowers, and an uncanny volcanic landscape. You’ll have spectacular views of the Bay of Naples as well.
