If you are passionate about ancient history and would like to fuel up in two places full of vitality and culture, you should choose this tour. Your private English speaking driver will pick you up at your location and will drive you to explore the ancient town of Pompeii and Naples city center.
Pompeii offers the best look at ancient Roman life, because the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79 stopped its history for ever and preserved its tracks as they were 2000 years ago. An entire city of ruins, comprehensive of houses, frescoes and decorations, discloses in front of your very eyes, waiting for you to live again. Once a booming commercial port, Pompeii was at the time always jammed with travelers from sunup to sundown: shops, entertainments’ points, brothels, restaurants, everything was a stone’s throw away and is now yours to explore.
Visiting Naples, you will have one of the best cross-sections on Italian history, from Greek-Roman times until today: a thriving commercial city with the ancient Greeks, it preserves the most intact ancient Roman street plan anywhere, then became a booming center in the Middle age and the capital of its own kingdom until Italian unification in XIX century. Every historic period left a visible trace or impression: you can get lost here today, following the footsteps of the past. Take your time to explore the town and its narrow streets, to let you be enchanted by local people and customs and complete your tour eating a delicious pizza!
