Duration : 9 Hours
This private shore excursion to the Pompeii ruins & Capri from Naples includes a private licensed guide. Absolutely the easiest and most informative way to learn about the legendary volcanic eruption of 79 AD, and experience the beauteous island of the Campanian Archipelago.
Features of this day trip to Pompeii & Capri from Naples:
This tour starts at 8.00 am at the pier in Naples, where you will be picked up by your driver and licensed guide. After a scenic drive along the bay of Naples with the brilliant Tyrrhenian Sea to the west and the looming figure of Mt. Vesuvius to the east, you will arrive at Pompeii.
From the pier, after a 45-minute ride in a comfortable, air-conditioned deluxe minivan or sedan, you will reach a place where time has stood still since 79 AD. Since that fateful day when the cataclysmic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius rained tons of ash and lava down on Pompeii, the Roman city remained buried in a perfectly preserved state until excavations began in the 18th century. What was brought to light is now one of Italy's most fascinating and frequented attractions.
At the Pompeii ruins, you will learn about the technique of pouring liquid plaster into the empty spaces in the lava to recreate the bodily forms that once filled the voids. In this way, we are able to see what the residents were doing at the time of the eruption. As you tour the streets of the ancient town with your guide, you'll be walking in the steps of the Romans who lived there almost 2000 years ago, amongst the public baths, temples, markets and forums. The buildings are nothing less than intriguing, and some of the houses still contain their original marble decoration, well-preserved frescoes and splendid mosaics.
You will have 2 hours to tour Pompeii with your private guide, who will also, accompany you on the hydrofoil to Capri.
