Are you looking for a tour combining culture, history and culinary experience? This is the perfect tour for you: a sightseeing in the ruins of Pompeii, a hike to the top of Mount Vesuvius and a wine experience in the hills of Vesuvius National Park.
Pompeii is part of the World’s Human Heritage because it represents a vivid image of a Roman city that crystallized in a specific moment, the one of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which buried the town in 79 AD. Walking the site, you will have the chance to know and understand the real life of an ancient world: houses, frescoes, temples, brothels and markets, everything stands here for you and wait for you to live again. Mount Vesuvius is the active volcano overlooking the Gulf of Naples: if this bay is considered one of the most spectacular of the world, it is due for sure to this ‘big lug’ which dominates it. Take your time to hike to the crater’s edge and to listen to the sound of nature: you will be able to hear the rocks falling in the crater and to enjoy a show of unique beauty made by breathtaking bird’s-eye views on the Bay of Naples, the isle of Capri, the Amalfi Coast and more.
You can complete your tour with a wine experience in the hillside of Mount Vesuvius, visiting a local winery and discovering a deep-rooted production of our territory. You will have a walk through the vineyards, where an expert guide will introduce you the grape varieties and the local cultivation methods. You will learn all the steps of wine production, from the presses, which are the starting point, to the barrel room, where the wines are aged. In the end of your experience, you will enjoy an appetizer with local products, spaghetti with local tomatoes and a traditional sweet combined with four kinds of wine and a distillate, in a terrace overlooking the sea.
