    What to Expect
    Depart from Amalfi on this guided 8-hour tour by deluxe motor-coach to Pompeii, the Roman city buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD.
    Walk through the archaeological site. Its excavated area extends for approximately 109 acres (44 hectare), and the preservation state of its buildings is exquisite due to the type of eruption (the city was buried under a blanket of ash and rock) of Vesuvius. Pompeii can be considered one of the only archaeological sites which gives the real image of a Roman city.
    You will have free time for lunch (not included). Then, depart in a bus to drive 3,280 feet (1000 meters) up Mt. Vesuvius, where you will be escorted by a specialized guide to walk to the summit. Mt. Vesuvius is the best-known volcano on earth. It dominates the Bay of Naples with its characteristic cone.
    Proceeding along the rim of the crater, you can observe the whole extent of the southern part of the volcano and, during days with good visibility, it is possible to see the entire Gulf of Naples — from the Sorrento peninsula to Cape Miseno, Procida, and Ischia. On the journey back, you will visit one of the most prestigious cameo and coral factories to see the making of cameos.

    A lot of people had said better to go on one's own and not bother with an excursion. Others even said Pompeii not really worth seeing. Just as well I ignored both. It was really hot and faffing about on public transport and then walking...More

    Pompeii - we could visit for a week and still be amazed by this fabulous historical marvel! It is one of a kind, even if you've seen ruins before. Nothing compares!
