 NAPLES POMPEI

full day private guided excursion to the Bay of Naples

Heading south a scenic drive through vineyards, Apennines hills, old villages, seeing the medieval Abbey of Montecassino, gets you to Naples, pearl of the Mediterranean, overlooked by smoke-capped Vesuvius. Drive to Mergellina where fisherman sell their morning catch, and along the seafront promenade see glamorous hotels, club houses and the fountain and harbour of St Lucia, inspiration of world famous melody. See the harmonious architecture of Royal Palace square, and the San Carlo Opera House, with its Caruso memories. Drive past mighty Maschio Angioino, and see cruise ships, huge cargoes and massive air carriers in the busy harbour. Drive along the bustling commercial streets of the colourful old city and join the coastal highway to Pompei. Once a thriving city, this exciting ancient times playground was devastated by Vesuvius eruption in 79 AD when 30 ft of volcanic ashes and lava buried it underground. Ironically one of the ancient world major disasters preserved time in Pompei where present times visitors experience life as it was lived in 79 AD. Enjoy a breath-taking look through the centuries as you step back into antiquity. See the Forum surrounded by imposing temples and gorgeous residences and begin to grasp the lifestyle of the inhabitants. See theatres, villas, shops, public baths where people relaxed and socialized and even plaster cast of some residents in their last moments. Admire countless wall paintings in wealthy patrician mansions and be amused by some naughty inscriptions. See pavements on both sides of streets and stepping stones ensuring pedestrians safety at intersections.
