HALF DAY TOUR TO POMPEII WITH WINE TASTING LUNCH
Guided Pompeii tour with lunch included
This is a half day tour to Pompeii with lunch included!
After meeting your English-speaking driver we make the short ride to Pompeii, taking in amazing views of Mt. Vesuvius, Isle of Capri, Bay of Naples and Sorrento.
In no time at all you will be Pompeii!
Enjoy an indepth two hour guided tour of Pompeii, be amazed as the guide takes you back in time and brings the ruins back to life in front of your eyes! Walk the streets and see where the Romans of 79 AD lived, worked, relaxed and entertained.
Pompeii was partially destroyed and buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79, and it was lost for nearly 1700 years before its accidental rediscovery in 1749. Since then, its excavation has provided an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire.
Today, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the most popular tourist attractions of Italy, with approximately 2,500,000 visitors every year.
After visiting Pompeii we will head in to the national park of Mt. Vesuvius ( 10 minute drive from Pompeii ) stopping at a local winery.
On arrival the owners will take you on a tour of the vineyards and wine cellar. Then whilst enjoying a spectacular view - on one side the island of Capri, behind you the dominating slopes of Mt. Vesuvius - you are invited to taste four of their best wines, two red and two white, their Rosé Prosecco, and two types of Grappa, one young and one aged in wooden barrels whilst enjoying a relaxing light lunch set in the middle of the vineyard. Antipasta including local salami, cheese and bruschetta, followed by spaghetti (produced locally) in a tomato sauce, finishing with a typical dessert.
After this relaxing lunch we will take you back to your accommodation.
