I missed my date on this tour. I asked if I could attend a different date, but they required me to pay full price again if I wanted to attend (there was space). Granted I missed my date, but I did pay for it. I would have expected flexibility to fit me in a tour on a different date.

ITINERARY

Join us on this amazing journey through space and time, entering Pompeii: a unique document of Greco-Roman life.

We will begin our journey along the Highway of the Sun, driving past the famous Roman countryside, the Castelli Romani. Admire an incredible views of the Mediterranean and Mount Vesuvius, as well as to countless historic sites. You will enjoy a short sight of the City, the seashore and the Gulf of Naples.

After stopping for a traditional Italian lunch, we will make our way to the UNESCO Archaeological Site of Pompeii with skip-the-line tickets. We will spend the afternoon exploring this once thriving city that was frozen in time by layers of volcanic ash. Pompeii remained buried under a layer of pumice stones and ash 19 to 23 feet (6 to 7 meters) deep. The city’s sudden burial served to protect it for the next 17 centuries from vandalism, looting and the destructive effects of climate and heavy weather.

After the tour of Pompeii, we will resume our trip through the Roman countryside, enjoying the scenery as we leisurely make our way back to Rome. Return in time to enjoy the rest of the night in Rome at your leisure.
