Enjoy visiting the villas of the Roman Elite in Herculaneum.
Wander thourgh the vineyards under the shade of Vesuvio
Hike up to the top of the volcano to enjoy the splendid views of the bay of Naples
When you visit this site,the first impression is one of amazement at the sheer volume of the volcanic materials that covered this Roman port. A large part of Herculaneum is still hidden beneath the present day town so you can explore the area which over 2000 years ago was close by the sea. Walking down through the materials and into the site you can still see the vertical tunnels they dug out in the 18th century in which they used to lower men down into the ruins to pick up any items they could find.
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 of you who wish to admire the Volcano from afar, you can do so on your tour of the winery.
