Shore Excursion to  Pompeii, Mt. Vesuvius and Herculaneum from Salerno Port

Excursion 3 - Pompeii, Herculaneum & Mt. Vesuvius

This tour is offered with these options:

  • Pompeii & Herculaneum
  • Pompeii & Vesuvius
  • Herculaneum & Vesuvius

Visiting all three areas in one day is possible but very rushed and not recommended.


Can’t decide which archaeological site to visit?  How about both?!  And the Culprit!

At about 1pm on 24 October AD 79, Mount Vesuvius erupted violently. By the end of the following day, thousands of people were dead and the flourishing Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum had disappeared beneath tons of ash, pumice and solidified mud.

The excavations at Pompeii and Herculaneum, by contrast, offer an intact vision of daily life in Roman society in all its aspects. They have produced not only many treasures, but also many less precious objects extremely useful for the understanding of everyday life during the years of the Roman empire. In the buildings of these towns - from the monumental to the most simple - the ancient world appears in all its complexity, with great clarity.

Mt. Vesuvius - Mainland Europe's only live volcano. Your driver will take you up 1000 metres, from there you have an optional 30-minute walk to the crater; Once at the top you can walk a third of the way around - inside the crater you may even observe a fumarole (steam/gas vents) - BUT most of all enjoy a spectacular view over the bay of Naples.

 


HIGHLIGHTS

  • 2 hours free time in Pompeii
  • 2 hours free time in Herculaneum
  • Visit the only live volcano in mainland Europe, walk right to the crater!
  • Optional stop in a cameo factory to see this fine art being hand crafted

 
This is a physically difficult excursion involving a lot of walking, so good shoes must be worn!
