Shore Excursion Description
You will be greeted upon disembarkation at the port of Naples by your friendly and enthusiastic English speaking guide.
Sit back and relax as you are transported in total comfort in our air-conditioned to your first stop on your tour: Pompeii
Enjoy a morning wandering through the ruins of the one-time Roman holiday town brought to its knees by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD. Marvel at the frescos and various architectural wonders so advanced for their era.
After your visit to the ruins of Pompeii you will once again enjoy a short narrated trip to the neighbouring town of Ercolano which was originally also an important Roman town called Herculaneum up until 79AD.
Enjoy the well preserved frescos and various villas as well as the infamous boat houses where the tragic victims of the eruption tried to take shelter.
Next stop will be on the slopes of Vesuvius itself. You can enjoy a delicious Italian lunch as well as a taste of the area’s renowned Mozzarella cheese and Limoncello liqueur.
Not too much Limoncello though as after lunch you will make the short walk to the top of the volcano and gaze into the abyss. You really can’t appreciate the size and power of Vesuvius until you get to the crater. It is a must see for anyone visiting the fascinating region.
Finally we will escort you back to your waiting cruise ship in the Port of Naples and wish you the best for the remainder of your holiday.
