Escape the hustle and bustle of Rome for the day and take a trip along the Mediterranean Coast, traveling south down the highway towards the ancient archaeological site of Pompeii. After a stop for breakfast, continue to the ruins of Pompeii where an official guide will take you on a walking tour of the remarkably intact city. Buried by molten lava and ash when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, Pompeii remained lost for hundreds of years, until it partial rediscovery in 1599. Marvel at the homes, shops, public baths and even a brothel of the everyday town, and hear the story of how the city was lost to the violence of the volcano. Stop for a tasting of local products for lunch, included in the tour price. Admire the beautiful views of the crescent-shaped Gulf of Naples, where the glamorous islands of Capri and Ischia lie like jewels in the Mediterranean Sea. Enjoy a typical Neapolitan coffee to gather your strength for a walk in the city center, where you can marvel at famous piazzas, such as Piazza del Plebiscito, and see historic castles like Castel Nuovo and Castel Sant’Elmo.
