Unravel the mysteries of Vesuvius and Herculaneum

Embark on an unforgettable journey back to 79 AD, immersing yourself in the natural grandeur of Vesuvius and the time-stood-still beauty of Herculaneum. Your day begins with a comfortable minibus ride up to the 1000-meter mark of Vesuvius. From here, accompanied by an expert volcanologist, you'll hike up to the crater – the only active volcano in mainland Europe with over 50 eruptions to its name. Standing at the brink, the panorama of Capri, Pompeii, and the Gulf of Naples unfurls before your eyes.

The archaeological marvel of Herculaneum

Post lunch, you journey back in time to Herculaneum, once wealthier than Pompeii and home to the extravagant Villa dei Papiri. Stroll through this UNESCO World Heritage site, marveling at the remarkably preserved frescoes and artifacts. The villa, named for 1,800 papyrus scrolls discovered in its library, offers a rare glimpse into Roman life. Even daily essentials like bread and fruit fossilized over centuries, are still discernible! As your tour concludes, relish the intriguing contrast between the volcanic wrath of Vesuvius and Herculaneum's preserved elegance. Book this enthralling experience now for an unforgettable trip through history and nature.
