Explore historic Naples and take a trip back to the summer of AD 79 when Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried the Roman city of Pompeii.
First, take time out in Naples – the vibrant capital of Campania and a city of contrasts. See its elegant palaces and grand piazzas. Then stroll its narrow, cobbled streets, where washing flutters above you and beautiful churches jostle for space between tiny shops and bars.
Later, journey to ancient Pompeii to see a city frozen in time. Glimpse the minute details of the every day lives of its inhabitants. Sense the panic they felt on the day of the disastrous eruption. Marvel at the remarkable preservation of the villas, streets, mosaics and frescos
