We'll guide you through the most significant archaeological sites of Italy: Pompeii and Herculaneum.
You will meet your English speaking driver at the Hotel and he will drive you to the archeological site of Pompeii where you will spend approximately 2 hours.
Pompeii was an ancient Roman town near modern Naples.
Its initial rediscovery was in 1599 and there was a broader rediscovery almost 150 years later in 1748.
You will see many villas and temples that were destroyed and buried under 13 to 20 feet of volcanic ash and pumice in the Mount Vesuvius eruption in AD 79.
Then you will continue to Herculaneum (about 15 min to reach it).
The tour will take about two hours.
Like Pompeii, Herculaneum was buried and destroyed by Vesuvio's eruption in 79 AD.
Herculaneum was wealthier than Pompeii, characterized by an extraordinary density of fine houses with more lavish use of coloured marble cladding, whose original splendour has been preserved and covered by a deep pyroclastic material.
After Pompeii and Herculaneum tour, the driver will take you back to your hotel.
