Begin your day trip with pickup from your cruise port in Naples, where you meet your guide and travel to the UNESCO-listed ruins of Pompeii.
Upon arriving, embark on a guided tour through the impressive archaeological site, with stops at Vetti’s House, the Thermal Baths, the Lupanare brothel, and the Forum, each buried by volcanic ash during Mt. Vesuvius’ eruption in AD 79. As you go, hear the history of each site, as well as the full story behind the fateful day almost 2,000 years ago when the prosperous city was destroyed.
Afterward, relax with a complimentary pizza lunch, accompanied by a drink. Refueled, hop aboard your coach to Mt. Vesuvius for a climb to the summit with your guide. Soak up panoramic views of the Bay of Naples from the top, and walk around the crater at 3,900 feet (1,200 meters). Don’t be surprised if you see plumes of steam issuing from the sleeping volcano as you peer down into its depths.
Your day trip concludes with transportation back to your original departure point.
