Participating in the Naples and Pompeii Day Tour is a precious way to visit Italy. Naples is a gorgeous Southern Italy town known for its vibrant people and unique gastronomy. You have to speak loudly to be heard here over the famously noisy locals! In town, we will see the Royal Palace, Castel dell’Ovo, Piazza del Plebiscito, and admire the beautiful Mediterranean Sea.
On the Naples and Pompeii Day Tour expect to visit the seaside where we will see the boats rock gently in the harbour, bringing fresh seafood to the city’s restaurants. You will have the chance to try the fish yourself at lunchtime. If you can’t get enough of Italian pizza, it’s worth it to try the Napolitano-style pizza, with a thick, fluffy crust that quickly fills you up but keeps you wanting more!
After we’ve finished in this vibrant town, we will take the bus inland to the frozen in time city of Pompeii. The city was a quickly developing area when the looming Mt. Vesuvius erupted twice within a few days, covering the town completely with lava and ash. This occurred in 79 AD and no one has yet dared to move back.
The Naples and Pompeii Day Tour will guide you through the ruins, into houses still stocked with pots and pans, shoes left by the door, and in some cases, actual inhabitants whom, caught off guard, were covered themselves in the final position they took under the rain of ash. Imagine yourself at the excavated Grand Theatre when Vesuvius erupted, unsure of what natural, or godly, disaster was taking place. What would have been your fate?
Once you’ve had enough of being so close to the mighty volcano, we will drive together back to Rome. Our knowledgeable guides will answer any questions that come to mind after such a culture and history-filled day! With Italy Tours R Us you will arrive at the hotel filled with good food and unforgettable memories of a city lost in time.
