Come with us on a journey back in time to walk along the streets of Pompeii as the Romans did more than 2,000 years ago !! In Pompeii explore the once busy Roman Port before driving up to the volcano of Vesuvio .We will accompany you as far as possible by road and then give you time to reach the rim of the crater on foot , so that you can savour the spectacular views from the summit.
