On GoinItaly’s full-day tour we visit one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world: Pompeii. Buried by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A.D, the remarkably intact ruins of Pompeii make it one of Europe’s most compelling archaeological sites. Accompanied with a licensed expert guide, you will gain an incredible insight into life at the height of the Roman Empire. As you wander around the ancient dusty streets, in and out of the haunting ruins of fine Roman villas and courtyards, it is easy to imagine these places as they once were.
After the 2-hour guided tour, you will have an additional hour to further explore the site on your own. Then a short drive to a nearby vineyard on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. Here the ancient Romans grew the grapes for the Lacryma Christi (Tears of Christ) which are still being produced today. We will have a vineyard tour and then enjoy a wine tasting with lunch.
