On this comprehensive excursion from Naples, you'll visit the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, followed by a hike on Mt. Vesuvius - the infamous volcano which caused the destruction of these cities in 79 A.D.

In Pompeii, you'll stroll through the ancient streets and discover all of the landmarks of the ruins which represent the social life of this Roman city, including the thermal baths, the frescos of the Lupanare, the Macellum and the Basilica.

Next you'll visit Herculaneum, which was discovered by accident on 1709 and has since become one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world.  As you wander through the streets, you are not only offered a unique glimpse into the private lives of the Romans, but you can also sense the panic that must have seized its inhabitants when the volcano erupted.

After visiting the ruins, you'll drive up to Mt. Vesuvius itself, where your guide will help you with the purchase of tickets to visit the crater.  From the ticket office, you will walk to the top of the volcano to see the crater and learn the history of Mt. Vesuvius from a professional National Park guide.  Admire the summit of Mount Somma, the cone of Vesuvius, and the Valley of the Giant.
