Pompeii and Vesuvius 

departure every Tuesday, Wednesday  and Sunday from 7.40 to 8.35 a.m.

Pompeii holds an intense fascination for visitors today. Following the eruption of the Mount Vesuvius in the year 79 A.D.. Pompeii lay buried and forgotten for hundreds of years. The town is high on the list of the Wonders of the World and the excavations begun in the 18th Century are still being carried out today. The guide will take you slowly through some of the ancient streets of Pompeii 'where you can see Baths. Forums and Villas built by the prosperous Romans in the year 80 B.C. Marvel at the fabulously preserved frescos which adorned the walls and floors of the Villas. Even if your interests do not lie in history, this is an archeological site that cannot fail to impress you. Mount Vesuvius dominates the Bay of Naples. It is the only active volcano on the mainland of Europe. The slopes were once covered with vineyards and woods and provided an innocent looking backdrop for the bustling town below. The coach will take you within 1.000 metres of the top of Vesuvius and from here you can walk to the very top and admire the splendid panoramic views across the bay. (From the blackened crater rises a single pIume of smoke, a reminder that the volcano is only sleeping for now...) Reminder: Comfortable, closed in shoes an your camera.
