The tour is available from Naples, Sorrento, Positano, or Salerno and it includes the transportation service. It’s suitable also for cruise passengers and is available from the main ports of the Campania region. The tour matches two famous destinations: the Ancient town of Pompeii and Naples that is considered the capital in South Italy.
Naples and Pompeii
The Ancient Pompeii, with more than three million visitors per year, is so unique because it offers insight into Roman life and it still preserves the evidence of the terrible eruption of Mount Vesuvius that destroyed it in 79AD.
In Pompeii you’ll spend two full hours: the site is very huge and a professional guide may help you to get the most from your time.
From one of the three entrances you’ll have direct access to the main square of Pompeii called Forum where the public life took place, where people met, walked and traded.
Around this area the visitor will be amazed by the huge number of public and religious buildings like the temple called Capitolium or the Basilica that was the court house of the tows.
Near the Capitolium opens the Grain Market of Pompeii that serves as storage for the artifact found at the moment of the excavation works. Into the storage are displayed the bodies of the victims called plaster casts: the final moment was captured forever.
Not so far from the main square there’s a complex of Thermal Baths that still preserve the original stuccoes and wall paintings. Crossing the rooms the Pompeians used for the bathing and for relaxing you will feel the same atmosphere at the time of the Roman times.
According to the openings that may change in mantainance routines you’ll see the most opulent Houses of Pompeii.
Naples was founded by the Greeks 2,500 years ago and conquered by the Romans for its strategic position on the sea. Nowadays the same characteristics attract visitors from all over the world. Its surprising allure and its cultural importance make the city one of the most requested destinations in Italy.
After this general view of the Ancient city, Naples and Pompeii tour continues with a panoramic tour of the city of Naples. You’ll visit Posillipo, the residential quarter of Naples where you will enjoy amazing views of the Gulf of Naples.
In the monumental area you’ll discover the majestic Castel Nuovo, Plebiscito Square, San Carlo Opera House, the Galleria Umberto I, the Royal Palace and the Church of San Francesco di Paola.
Along Toledo streets you see the famous Spanish Quarters, built in the XVI century and where, according to the legend, the Pizza was invented.
This road is also a shopping center and the best place where you can find little traditional restaurants for an unforgettable food experience!
At the end of Pompeii and Naples tour, the driver will lead you back to the meeting location.
