Take a full day to explore the marvels of Pompeii and might of Mount Vesuvius. Take a walking tour of the once opulent town, where the extensive ruins provide us with a snapshot of life in the time of the Roman Empire. Buried when Mount Vesuvius erupted, this excavated treasure trove inspires wonderment in children and adults alike. On view are temples, forums, amphitheatres, a brothel, and body casts of those killed by the falling ash and pumice stone. Then continue to Mount Vesuvius itself. Standing at 1,281 meters high, it made volcanological history during the eruption of 79 BC, when it destroyed the towns of Pompeii, Stabiae, and Herculaneum. Climb to the summit with your guide and admire the splendid views across the Bay of Naples. The rocky slopes, once covered with vineyards and woods, provide a spectacular backdrop for the bustling town below.
