Full Description:
See Mt. Vesuvius from a distance as you pass through Naples on your way to the ancient Roman city of Pompeii during an approximately 45 minute drive. The city was destroyed in 79 AD, covered with 20 feet of volcanic ash and pumice during the eruption of   Mt. Vesuvius. The city is preserved in time and has become one of the most famous excavation sites in the world. You will get the feel for what life was like nearly 2,000 years ago.

As you enter Pompeii through the Sea Gate, a short walk takes you to the city's hub, the Forum. Surrounded by lavish temples and porticoes, you'll begin to get a feel for the lifestyle of the inhabitants. Admire the mansions and art of wealthy patricians who moved to Pompeii to escape the turmoil of Rome. View countless paintings, inscriptions and streets with raised pavements on both sides. You’ll see the stepping-stones which ensured pedestrians a safe crossing at intersections.

If time permits, you’ll stop at a cameo factory where you will have the opportunity to observe local artisans at work in their centuries-old tradition.
