Discover in only one day the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum and drive to the top of Mount Vesuvius, which destroyed the town about 2000 years ago. This is one of the best tours of Pompeii and Herculaneum and you can also take the chance to enjoy a wine tasting in a typical restaurant located on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. Before Mount Vesuvius destroyed Pompeii in 79 AD, its volcanic vineyards produced unique wines that the ancient Romans enjoyed at lavish banquets. Today wine lovers can savor the same flavors with the historic wine known as Lacryma Christi.
Your tour starts with the visit of the Pompeii excavations where you can stroll through the streets of the ancient Roman city with its millennia-old houses, amphitheaters thermal baths and so on. Several buildings still retain part of their original decorations, such as those adorning the Villa of the Mysteries, the House of the Faun, the House of the Tragic Poet, and the Villa of Diomedes, among others.
After Pompeii, you will go to the discovery of another UNESCO archaeological site: Herculaneum so that you can check the main differences between these two sites. Both of them feature the excavated ruins of alleyways and homes where you are free to explore and yet continue to unearth the remains of a place locked in time today. Whereupon drive up to Mount Vesuvius and stop at 1000 mt. altitude. Once there enjoy the view of the Bay of Naples and enjoy your lunch. If you are a hiking and history lover, this Pompeii, Herculaneum and Mount Vesuvius tour is all you need! Enjoy our Pompeii Herculaneum and Mt Vesuvius drive Tour!
