The tour starts with the visit of the Roman city of Pompeii ruins, the most famous and evocative archeological site in the world and “the Big Giant” is what made it immortal, caused the destruction of this city in AD 79.

First, our tour guide will show you the landmarks of the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, such as: the thermal baths, the frescos of the Lupanare, the Macellum and the Basilica. In case of ongoing maintenance work of some villas or buildings for restoration or other exceptional circumstances, the tour guide will replace the visit with an alternative interesting ancient building to visit.
After Pompeii, drive up the mount Vesuvius and stop in a local resturant located in a panoramic place along the volcano slopes. Enjoy your pizza lunch or the wine tasting with local and genuine food.
Whereupon our driver will lead you to 1000 mt. and than you will walk to the real top of the volcano to see the crater. At the summit, you can enjioy the explanation made by a professional tour guide of the National Park, or just peek into the crater on your own. You will admire the summit of Mount Somma (1133 mt.) and to the right the cone of Vesuvius (1281 mt.), both separated by a valley, called Valley of the Giant.
