Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
It’s not often that you visit a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it’s even rarer to visit two Heritage Sites in a day. Well, that’s one of the reasons you shouldn’t miss this incredible adventure to the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. Packed with excitement, awe-inspiring natural scenery, and fascinating culture, this tour experience has it all and is enjoyed by people of all ages, kids and seniors included.
Pompeii is a legendary city! Discovered in 1748 AD, Pompeii is most notable for the infamous eruption of Mt. Vesuvius which covered the city in ash. The ash served as the perfect preservative for the ruins which stand with the same aura of grandeur associated with the Roman era. Stroll along the city and try to imagine what the city must have been like in the past as a professional archaeologist guide tells you everything you need to know about the city.
The Amalfi Coast is a rugged shoreline famous for its dramatic landscapes and is a popular location in films, TV programmes, and media. Although its safe to say you’ve seen it on TV before, that is not the real deal. A pristine, coastal landscape with patches of green on one side and the majestic Lattari mountains on the other; this is a drive you will not soon forget.
Hop aboard the GT coach as it picks you up from your hotel/apartment in central Naples and prepare yourself for a journey which takes you to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites which are famous the world over for their breathtaking beauty, natural heritage, and rich history.
First things first, escape the city towards the coast for a stunning visual experience. Relax in the comfort of your coach as you wind through the uncontaminated landscape that is the Amalfi Coast. 50-miles long, the journey on the coastal roads is relaxing, soothing and inspiring. With onboard commentary to keep you engaged with the sights all around you, this drive is a stunning experience.
After lunch in one of the local restaurants, head to Pompeii for a tryst with history. Explore the ruined city on a guided tour and take in the many sights including the thermal baths, the large theater, the Basilica, the Macellum and the House of Faun. Learn about the rich history of the land as you explore the ruins and reflect upon times gone by as you visit the most interesting places of this ancient commercial city. Once your tour of Pompeii is over, it’s time to head back to Naples where you will be dropped back to your hotel/apartment.
