Pompeii Day trip
Pompeii and the Vesuvian Eruption
Pompeii Day Trip from Rome: Pompeii is a partially buried Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania, partially destroyed and buried under 6m of ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. Pompeii was lost for nearly 1700 years before its accidental rediscovery in 1749. Since then, its excavation has provided an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city during the Pax Romana. After leaving Rome and driving along the “Sun Route” motorway, we will cross the regions of Lazio and Campania. From the road you will enjoy the view of the famous Abbey of Montecassino. Once in Naples, there will be a short panoramic tour of the city: the pier of Santa Lucia with its impressive Castel dell’Ovo, the historical centre, 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.
We will then continue towards Pompeii where, after the lunch break in a typical restaurant and then a short visit in a coral and cameo factory, we will visit the excavations of this world-famous Roman town, destroyed by the eruption of the Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Return to Rome.
