Pompeii and Herculaneum Day Trip from Naples

This tour focus on the visit of the two main archaeological sites of the region: Pompeii and Herculaneum, the ancient roman cities swept away by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD.

Considered of great importance for the Roman Empire, they were at their social and economic peak at the time of the disaster. The main difference between the two places is that Pompeii was a bustling city, gateway for merchants and travellers, while the latter was more of a residential village for aristocrats and intellectuals.

Stop along the way to a local factory to learn more about the process of Cameos (carved sea shells) and Corals craft. Lunch break to a local restaurant, drinks not included.

Description

Itinerary

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Pompeii Archaeological Park, Porta Marina (via Villa dei Misteri), 80045 Pompeii Italy

At the time of the dramatic eruption, Pompeii counted about 11.000 inhabitants, while Herculaneum had a population of some 5.000 people. A number of emperors and aristocrats had their holiday villas in these cities. One day, in 79 AD, several meters of ashes buried the whole area in a matter of few hours. Centuries later, in 1748, under the Bourbons government, excavation works started. The discovery was greeted with enthusiasm as it added great wealth to the kingdom and inspired the neoclassicism movement in Europe. Nowadays, the ruins of Pompeii are amongst the most visited archaeological sites in the world, while Herculaneum is renewed for its Villa dei Papiri containing a library of over 1800 papyruses.

Included in this tour there is a stop to a Cameos and Corals workshop, to learn more about this ancient art-craft, for which the Neapolitan school is still considered of great importance. Cameos in particular are carved sea shells representing scenes of mythological deities.

We had a great time at this tour! Our guide Silvana was passionate about her job and made sure we had a good time walking around and learning the history behind those sights. I wish there were more professionals like her! Food was ok but the portions were ridiculously small. I suggest the office take care of this.

We wee picked up by black car service to our bus then to pompei. Pompei tour was short but precise. We would have preferred more Tim in pompei as it is a huge site but we seen a lot. Then Herculaneum which was amazing. Sylvannia, our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the site and the tour was thorough.

Chose this over the cruise ships vastly overpriced shore excursion. After the initial lack of communication and attendance by the coordinator at the advised time (welcome to Italy 😁) all went well. Pompeii was better than expected and not as crowded as we were warned about. God tour if not a little rushed. However, avoid the Cameo factory and there overpriced rip off. Herculaneum was even better and is a lot quieter in terms of tourists but far more intact and will give you a real sense of life in the times
