This wonderful day trip from Rome takes you to the city of Naples and Pompeii - the city destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Leave Rome in a coach in a southerly direction and take the Highway of the Sun crossing the fertile Roman countryside through the area known as Castelli Romani. Approximately halfway along the highway, you will be able to see the Abbey of Montecassino.


Arrive at Naples and proceed towards the hill of Posillipo, from where you can enjoy spectacular views of the Gulf of Naples and the volcano, Vesuvius. Descend towards the port of Mergellina and follow the coastal road to arrive at the ancient fishing quarter of Santa Lucia. Here you will see the impressive Castel dell’Ovo (meaning Egg’s Castle), rising upon the islet of Megaride. It is the city’s oldest castle. Apparently, the name of the castle is linked to a medieval legend. Other major sites that you will come across are Piazza del Plebiscito, Royal Palace, Basilica of San Francesco di Paola, San Carlo Opera House, Gallery of Umberto I, and Maschio Angioino fort.

Leave the city and cross the fertile valley of Mount Vesuvius passing the towns of Ercolano, Torre del Greco and Torre Annunziata before arriving at Pompeii.


Stop for lunch at a local restaurant and then head to the Pompeii excavation site. You will then have a guided tour of Pompeii that will take around 2 hours. An expert guide will bring Pompeii back to life for you and show you many of the best-preserved relics. Through the remains and ruins of this ancient city, you can picture the everyday life in the Imperial Age and imagine the panic felt by the people before the city was so disastrously buried.

On the way back to Rome you will visit a coral and cameo factory, where you have the opportunity to admire and purchase items of this ancient craft, dating back to the Greek times.
