Pompeii and Vesuvius Tour from Rome
FULL DAY TOUR
She is waiting. Mount Vesuvius, for you to see her. Active even today, she is restless as the town continues to prosper and bustle much in the way it did on That Day in 79 A.D. A 20-minute hike through her ash and pumice and stone brings you to the summit (April-October). You can see the town that once was, Pompeii. Another choice is to visit the Archeological Museum of Pompeii filled with relics found in the ash. Mosaics, statues and artwork stand side by side with artifacts. Lunch in Napoli, the birthplace of pizza, on some of the best pies in Italy. After, Pompeii stands as a testament to the city that vanished in an instant. See the cobbled roads, the forum, the residences, and the brothels. Discover why this UNESCO World Heritage Site continues to shock and fascinate the 2.6 million people who venture here each year.
