Pompeii was partly destroyed and covered by the eruption of the volcano “Vesuvio” in 79 A.D. and forgotten over the years. The excavations began in the eighteenth century and gradually led to the discovery of fabulous villas with frescoes preserved by the lava flow, an amphitheater and much more to show the prosperity of this city in the past. The excavation work is not finished and still continue with the aim of giving the modern civilization treasures of the past.
After the tour and lunch, we proceed to the discovery of the crater of Vesuvio, the source of so much destruction. The "Vesuvius" masterfully dominates the whole Bay of Naples and is scaled to a height of 1,000 meters in the car, then continue on foot to the crater for the visit with licensed guides or by yourself.
