8:30 am: Pick up from Naples port by a minivan with English speaking driver for a comfortable transfer to Vesuvius.
9:45 am: Drive up Vesuvius then walk up to the cone and have a look inside.
Mount Vesuvius is still active & last erupted in 1944. The plume of smoke which hung over the cone of the volcano disappeared in 1948 but this is of little relief to local inhabitants as scientists expect the volcano to erupt every 30 – 40 years.
After taking the bus to the base of the volcano, we will be met by an official guide who will escort us along the 1.5 km hike to get to the summit & the cone of the volcano.

Founded in the 7th Century B.C, Pompeii is of great interest for historians. It is said that while Rome gives an insight into the monumental architecture of the Romans, Pompeii illustrates their everyday life. Pompeii had been a Roman colony since 80BC and prospered with the construction of many large temples, villas and palaces until 63AD, when it was devastated by an earthquake. The city had been largely rebuilt when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79AD and buried the whole city under several layers of molten lava and ash.
Approximately two thousand inhabitants were suffocated by the acrid smoke of the eruption & participants will be able to view many of the survivors’ bodies frozen in the positions in which they died. Our visit to Pompeii will include the Amphitheatre, the army barracks, several temples, shops & some important paintings that have survived to this day.
