Half Day Tours of Naples, Pompeii & Vesuvius area

Private tours of Naples, Pompeii & Vesuvius area

Naples, Pompeii & Vesuvius area Naples' historic city center is the largest in Europe, covering 1,700 hectares (4,200 acres), ;and is listed by ;UNESCO ;as a ;World Heritage Site. Our English-speaking driver will pick you up at your accommodation and take you on a half day tour of one of the most fascinating cities in Italy. The lively and chaotic city of Naples is famous as much for its incredible wealth of historical museums as it is for its pizza which was invented here.
Pompeii was lost for nearly 1700 years before it was rediscovered again in 1748. Your visit to Pompeii will give you extraordinary insight into what everyday life may have been like almost 200 centuries ago. Departing from your accommodation, you will drive directly to Pompeii with your English speaking driver and visit this amazing city that was once buried under 20 feet of ash and pumice.
This ancient Roman city was destroyed and buried by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A .D . Although this tragic event ended the lives of 20,000 Pompeian residents, the ash that buried the town served as a sort of mummification for the entire city; Archeological excavations are open to the public (entrance fee Euro 11.00 per person) between the hours of 9:00 am and 6:00 pm every day of the week, local guides can be hired in advanced or headphones voicing explanations of the sites can be rented.
Please note that since Pompeii is a popular area for tourists, we strongly recommend being cautious of your belongings at all times. If you still have time, you can enjoy a ride up the slopes of Mount Vesuvius.
Mount Vesuvius is best known for its eruption in AD 79 that led to the burying and destruction of the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. That eruption ejected a cloud of stones, ash and fumes to a height of 20.5 miles, spewing molten rock and pulverized pumice at the rate of 1.5 million tons per second, ultimately releasing a hundred thousand times the thermal energy released by the Hiroshima bombing. ;An estimated 16,000 people died due to hydrothermal pyroclastic flows. The only surviving eyewitness account of the event consists of two letters by Pliny the Younger to the historian Tacitus.

Vesuvius has erupted many times since and is the only volcano on the European mainland to have erupted within the last hundred years. Today, it is regarded as one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world because of the population of 3,000,000 people living nearby and its tendency towards explosive (Plinian) eruptions. It is the most densely populated volcanic region in the world.
