We offer an English speaking driver who can provide transportation but highly recommend adding a two hour walking tour of the ruins of Herculaneum with one of our guides for a more memorable experience. Your driver will be waiting for you in the hotel lobby or where needed, holding a sign with your name on it.
The smaller sister of Pompeii, is a destination for lovers of beauty. Visitors to the ancient city have the rare opportunity to see perfectly intact patrician villas. A miracle of preservation where even the wood and ropes of the 2000 year old city are on display, along with stunning brick work, mosaics, and frescos. The detail with which Herculaneum has been preserved is remarkable considering the violence of the 500 C° volcanic flows which ravaged the city.
Explore Vesuvius, the giant volcano dominating the Bay of Naples. Drive up 3000 feet through the old crater and then make the final 25 minute hike up to the top, zigzagging along a path of volcanic gravel. Once at the summit, peer into the 700ft deep and 2000ft wide crater of the Vesuvius--both the destroyer and keeper of Pompeii and Herculaneum—and take in unparalleled views of the Peninsula of Sorrento and the islands Capri, Ischia, and Procida.
