Description

A whole day tour that includes a visit to the historical centre of Naples and an inside visit of the excavations of Pompeii

Departure to Rome with arrival in Naples at approx. 10.30 a.m.. The local guide will take you to visit the historical centre of the city walking by Piazza del Plebiscito, Piazza del Municipio, the Gallery Umberto I, the Royal Palace and the San Carlo Opera House. In the afternoon an inside visit of the excavations of Pompeii, the famous Roman city destroyed by an eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, surely one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. Due to its excellent state of preservation it has given an invaluable and unique insight into the Roman world. Details of everyday life and the large number of frescoes  well  preserved  have been a major advance in art history of the ancient world.  Ash, pumice and other volcanic debris covered and  preserved  the city, therefore, it’s been possible  to reconstruct the opulent lifestyle that was enjoyed by the wealthier citizens of the early Roman Empire.  A "Pizza" lunch will be served in a local Restaurant.

Please note that according to the Italian law the driver is obliged to make 2 stops on long distance excursions.
