Set to the SW of Mt. Vesuvius no far from the gulf of Naples, Pompeii is known throughout the world for its tragic destruction, in AD 79 by the eruption of the Vesuvius volcano, and for its miraculous discovery in the 18th century. In few other excavations in Italy does one have as clear an idea as one has in Pompeii of just how the ancient Romans organized a city, a particularly complete example of a market town, with a clear distinction between quarters serving a public function and residential areas. During the walk among the well preserved buildings you will be lectured on daily life, religious beliefs and government organization in ancient Pompeii.
After a spectacular driving along the Sorrentina and Amalfi coasts you will have lunch in Positano, where the mountain spurs, covered by terraced white houses, run down to the harbour of this old fishing village.
We’ll pick you up from the pier at 9.00 am, to drive you back to your ship at 5.00 pm.
The 8-hour private tour is for individuals as well as for small groups and it can be modified on the base of client’s interests.
