Tour Route Description

Close Encounters of the Vesuvian Kind

8:30 – Your chariot, a comfortable 19-person luxury minibus, awaits at the port. Hop inside and sit back to enjoy the scenery en route to the legendary Mount Vesuvius, responsible for burying the towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Drive up Vesuvius’ formidable flank, then tiptoe up the cone to peek over into its depths. You’ll depart Vesuvius around 11:30.

Lunch (included in the price)

Nothing stokes the appetite like an encounter with molten, ashy mortality, so next up, it’s off to lunch in Pompeii! Get there by bus and dine at Zi’ Caterina, known for excellent Napolese-style pizza and fresh, traditional Italian fare. Lunch is included in the tour’s price.

The Dust of Ages: Uncovering Pompeii

Now a UNESCO world heritage site, Pompeii disappeared beneath nearly 20 feet of ash thanks to the unchecked temper of its volcanic neighbour. It was Rediscovered in 1500 and today it is one of the most famous archeology sites in the world.

Walk the city with your guide and you’ll see Pompeii’s amphitheatre, one of the first ever made of stone instead of wood and site of early gladiatorial games. In keeping with the sporting theme, you’ll move on to the Gladiators’ Gym, the place where the city’s fighters trained and sparred. You’ll also pay a visit to the well-preserved Lupanar, Latin for “brothel,” which features many intact examples of erotic art.

Cool off post provocative pieces with a trip to the cavernous, ornamental thermal baths. You can inspect the baths’ beautiful mosaics with your guide in the ancient city’s bathing area. Back out in the sun, you will visit the Pompeii forum, bounded by the Temple of Jupiter, a Basilica, a grain market, and a temple to Vespasian.

Return to Modernity

16:15 - Hop back on your minibus to leave the ancient city of Pompeii and transfer to Naples. Arrival at your ship is slated for 18:00.
