Details

This day trip to Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius includes lunch. Hike to the top of the crater for a fantastic view of the Bay of Naples below. Infamous for the destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 AD, Vesuvius has erupted many times since—and is today regarded as one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world.

See for yourself how lava flows have scarred the sides of the volcano, and are visible on the winding road up to the top. Lunch follows the hike and includes slices of the world-famous pizza Naples is known for. The afternoon is yours to discover the now-ruined city of Pompeii. Walk Pompeii's main streets just as the ancient Romans did—the stones are still worn with tracks from the drawn carriages that tread them nearly 2,000 years ago.

When a trip to Mount Vesuvius is not possible, enjoy a visit of the Archaeological Museum of Pompei. Discover an impressive collection of original artifacts, mosaics, statues, and artwork removed during the excavations of Pompeii.
