A great occasion to combine the two most famous archaeological sites in Campania!
Departure in the morning by the deluxe motor coach to Pompeii.
Visit to the archaeological excavations (2 hours approx) of the Roman city buried by Vesuvius eruption to discover the conditions and contexts of ancient life which were suddenly interrupted in the night between the 24th and 25th of August, 79 AD, when the eruption of Vesuvius buried, under five meters of lapilli and ash, this small city on the Campanian coast.
Free time for lunch.
Continuation to Herculaneum, the other city buried by Vesuvius with Pompeii. Visit (2 hours approx) of the archaeological excavations.
Where as Pompeii was an insight into a busy commercial centre, Herculaneum by contrast was a quaint residential coastal town.
Not to be missed if you want to discover another side of life during the Roman Empire!
Please not this tour is not suitable for unless mobile as is a very long day walking into excavations sites.
On the journey back to Amalfi Coast stop to a famous cameo atelier of the area.
