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. Vesuvio is home to some excellent wineries, walk through the vineyards and learn all about the grapes and flavours of the wine produced in this fertile land
With most of Pompeii excavated you can wander around this vast site as you could in ancient times.You can stop by the shops, call in the theatre, visit the houses and even read the graffiti on the walls.That is only the beginning, much more to see in this marvellous excavation site -If you have already visited Pompeii if ,we can combine the winery visit with lesser known excavation site of Herculaneum.
Still towering high above the bay is the volcano of Vesuvio.For those who wish to walk up to the rim, we can take you as far as you can by road and then give you ample time to walk up to the crater, it will take you around 40 mins to walk up, dependent on fitness levels, another 40 minutes to walk down.For those who wish to admire the volcano from afar, you can do so on your tour of the winery.
