Pompeii, Herculaneum and Mount Vesuvius
I will be waiting inNaples port ( with a sign your name) or your hotel , then we’ll drive to Pompeii, once a thriving empire, the city of Pompeii had about 20,000 inhabitants in 79AD, when it was completely covered in 30 feet of volcanic ash by the deadly eruption of the Mount Vesuvius. Then we’ll drive to Herculaneum, an ancient residential town of Greek origins, and has also become an important stop for those tourists wishing to steep themselves in history. Destroyed and buried in ashes, together with Pompeii, by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Herculaneum also offers a variety of beautiful scenery and invaluable arts. Strangley, excavations began by accident in 1709 when some workers were digging a well – they discovered a wall, obiously old and out of site for hundreds of years, which was later found to be one of the stages of the ancient theatre.
Then we’ll drive by Mount Vesuvius were you can view the crater of Vesuvius which stands 1281 meters above sea level. Our cars can take you half way up this climb and you can tackle the rest on foot by walking for approximately 45 minutes up the steep mount; the view from the top makes the effort more than worthwhile!
