What to Expect on Your Full Day Shore Excursion of Herculaneum, Vesuvius & Pompeii from the Naples port
Herculaneum, a UNESCO World Heritage site will be your first stop. As your chauffeur takes you on this historical journey, he will be happy to share with you, valuable information about the region. Being a local, he will be able to give you insights about the area with learnings from his own experience.
Freeze timeless moments on your camera as you travel through this spectacular region.
Your chauffeur will then take you to the top of Mount Vesuvius. Your drive will be along a steep winding road up to 1000 meters from which point you would have to hike all the way up to the crater. There are handrails along the uphill path to make the walk easier. You could also rent walking sticks right there. Comfortable shoes are a must as the walk is along stony path.
Heading south from Vesuvius, our chauffeur will take you to Pompeii which lies five miles ahead. This ancient Roman city was rediscovered by a group of explorers in 1748 who found an almost intact city buried under volcanic debris. You could explore the area with or without a licensed guide. As the area is spread over 108 acres, we highly recommend you use an English-speaking guide which we can arrange at an additional cost with prior notice.
At the end of this day, you will be richer with experiences that you can share with your friends back on the cruise. There is no doubt that this excursion will be a reminder of how incredible our world truly is, and the even more incredible civilizations that preceded our time! Our chauffeur will meet you outside the ruins to begin your drive back to the Naples port.
