Discover in one day the amazing sites of Pompeii & Herculaneum , both destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius of 79 AD. Two sites, two stories, two experiences. So similar yet so very different! The tour starts with pick-up at your accommodation/meeting point, stop in Herculaneum and guided visit.
Herculaneum has been preserved like no other site in the world, not even nearby Pompeii. The city was buried beneath 16 meters of ash and mud during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, and this layer of detritus saved two-story domus homes with the internal architecture and décor intact, including features in wood and marble, decorations, jewelry, and even organic remains like food, providing a unique view into the daily lives of the ancient population of Herculaneum.
After that, transfer to the Vineyard “Cantine Sorrentino” for an easy lunch. In the early afternoon the visit will continue to Pompeii.
Pompeii preserved ancient Roman city in Campania at the southeastern base of Mount Vesuvius. Pompeii supported between 10,000 and 20,000 inhabitants at the time of its destruction, the ruins at Pompeii were first discovered late in the 16th century by the architect Domenico Fontana, work did not begin at Pompeii until 1748, and in 1763 an inscription “Rei publicae Pompeianorum” was found that identified the site as Pompeii. The work at these towns in the mid-18th century marked the start of the modern science of archaeology. The circumstances of their destruction preserved their remains as a unique document of Greco-Roman life. Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Torre Annunziata were collectively designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997. Departure in the morning with comfortable air-conditioned minibus to Pompeii and guided tour of the archaeological site. Transfer back by Minivan to your accommodation/meeting point.
