Pompeii / Amalfi / Naples
Visit the ancient city of Pompeii and relive daily life in the first century before Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79 A.D. burying the town under several feet of volcanic ash and preserving its memory for centuries. This is the best example of how a thriving city of the Roman Empire functioned at the height of the Empire.
A trusted driver would pick you up in Rome, drive you (approximately 2.5 hours) to the entrance of the excavations of Pompeii where a prearranged local guide/archaeologist would meet you for a two hour tour. Then you can head back to Rome or extend the day to visit the excavations of Herculaneum or to visit the popular coastal town of Sorrento for lunch and shopping.
