Explore 2 of the most celebrated archaeological sites in Campania during a day trip to Pompeii and Herculaneum. Discover ancient worlds buried by massive volcanic eruptions and impeccably preserved for generations of admirers.
After pickup from your hotel, or designated meeting place, enjoy transfer in a deluxe coach to Pompeii.
Buried in ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, many of this city's streets, homes, and inhabitants were remarkably preserved under several meters of hardened ash. Walk its streets and take a look at what life was like for a civilization that met a sudden and unexpected end.
After free time to explore the ruins and have lunch, continue your journey to Herculaneum, another city buried by Vesuvius with Pompeii. Marvel at fascinating archaeological excavations and take a look into the past of this once flourishing coastal town. The artifacts and ruins on display paint a vivid picture of life during the Roman Empire.Unlike Pompeii, the deep pyroclastic material which covered it preserved wooden and other organic-based objects such as roofs, beds, doors, food and even some 300 skeletons which were discovered in recent years along the seashore. It had been thought until then that the town had been evacuated by the inhabitants.
After a full day spent wandering extraordinarily well-kept ruins and excavation sites, settle back into your coach and reflect on your immersion into ancient history. Your rewarding experience ends with a ride back to your hotel.
