Itinerary

Pompeii

Pompeii is the first stop on the itinerary. You will visit the ruins, breathe the history, the art, the archeology of the most acclaimed open-air museum in the world. From the Temple of Apollo to the Baths, the Casa del Fauno, the Amphitheater ... Pompeii is waiting to be discovered, an unforgettable experience just like its history.

Excavations dominate the center of modern Pompeii, and right there, a few steps from the past, we visit one of the oldest coral factories in the city, admiring the masterpieces of local artisans, according to ancient Greek-Roman traditions.

Herculaneum

Smaller than Pompeii but in better condition because protected by a flow of mud, Ercolano was discovered in a completely random way, through the excavation of a well in 1709, during which marbles and statues that adorned the Theater of the ancient came to light city. And thanks to the importance of the works found, such as mosaics, paintings, indoor and outdoor environments, the excavations of Herculaneum are one of the most prestigious monumental complexes of classical antiquity and you will admire and discover its treasures through a guided tour without equal.

Vesuvius

Vesuvius is the only active volcano in continental Europe, and responsible for some of the largest volcanic eruptions on the continent. Although it represented a threat in the past, it remains forever one of the key symbols of Neapolitan history and culture. Going up towards the top, along the way you will admire the works made entirely of volcanic material by artists from around the world and once you reach the highest point, you will enjoy one of the most extraordinary scenarios in the entire Gulf of Naples, learning the history of that that the Neapolitan people call "Good Giant".
