Individual - Excursions Amalfi
Departure from Amalfi Coast
Departure from the hotel by de-luxe motor coach to Pompeii, the roman city buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 a.D. Driving for approx 1 hrs and ½ along the famous Amalfi Drive road, passing all the little picturesque towns, arrival in Pompeii. Guided visit to the archaeological site of Pompeii.
With its excavated area, extending for approximately 44 ha, and the preservation state of its buildings, due to the particular burial (under a blanket of 6 meter of ash and rock) caused by the eruption of the Vesuvius in 79 AD, Pompeii can be considered the only archaeological site which gives the real image of roman city. Free time for lunch. Departure by bus to Mount Vesuvius up to 1000 meters, then, escorted by a specialized guide, walk on the summit. Mt. Vesuvius is the best known volcano on earth; it dominates the Bay of Naples with its characteristic cone.
Proceeding along the rim of the crater, you can observe the whole extent of the southern part of the volcano and, during days with good visibility, it is possible to see the entire gulf of Naples, from the Sorrento peninsula to Cape Miseno, Procida and Ischia.
On the journey back visit to one of the most prestigious cameo and coral factories, to see the typical lavoration of cameos.
