Leaving Rome towards the south, we take the "Highway
of the Sun" crossing the fertile Roman countryside known
as the area of the "Castelli Romani". Halfway
along the highway you will be able to see the Abbey of Montecassino,
famous for the battle and its complete destruction which happened
during the second World War.
Arriving in Naples we will proceed towards the hill of Posillipo from where we can enjoy one of the most spectacular
views of the Gulf of Naples and the Volcano Vesuvio.
Descending towards the port of Mergellina and following
the coast we will arrive in the ancient fishing quarter of Santa
Lucia with its impressive Castel dell'Ovo (photograph
stop). The city tour continues crossing the historical centre
to see Piazza del Plebiscito, the Royal Palace,
the Basilica of San Francesco di Paola, the San Carlo
Opera House, the Gallery of Umberto I and the imposing Maschio Angioino.
Upon leaving the city, we cross the fertile valley of Mount
Vesuvius, passing the villages of Ercolano, Torre
del Greco and Torre Annunziata before finally arriving
at Pompeii where we will stop for lunch.
In the afternoon we will continue with a local guide on foot for
an archeological journey through the ancient city for approx a
2 hours visit. Buried under a layer of ashes and lapilli by a
sudden eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D., after 1700 years
the excavations have brought to light Pompeii, a town whose
daily life of the Imperial Age has been crystallized, as under
a spell, in its gestures, secrets, in the panic felt by its inhabitants
during the last moments.
At the end of the visit we will return to the coach for a journey
of approx 3 hours back to Rome. During this excursion we will
visit a Coral and Cameo factory where we will have the
opportunity to inspect and purchase items of this ancient craft
dating back to the Greek period.
Approximate arrival time around 8,00 - 8,30 pm and return to,
or nearby your Hotel.
Useful information: We would reccomend that you wear
comfortable clothes and shoes. We ask you to pay particular
attention to your guide and to wear sunglasses and sunhats in
the summer months to avoid any risk of sunstroke
