Herculaneum, Pompeii & Vesuvio




This tour takes you a magical journey back in time to enjoy a day in the life of the Romans





In Pompeii explore the streets and forums of the once busy Roman Port.

In Herculaneum visit the sumptuous villas of the Roman Elite

After visiting the sites, a ride 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.

You can then savour the spectacular views from the summit.





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.




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, there is much more to see in this marvellous excavation site.




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 - we will offer various suggestions for a light lunch or a snack if you prefer  - The choice is yours!

We can collect you as you come off the train in Naples, take you on tour and whisk you back to the station at the end of the day for your to return to Rome.

What our guests have to say:

We were delighted to have Salvatore as our driver and tour guide and historian AND culinary expert, what a great day we had! Knowing what a person is seeing on a tour in a new country is quite important, and he gave us the background information on everything.
