Once in Naples, a visit to the excavations at Pompeii is not to be missed. Pompeii has preserved much of its urban structure, as well as the architectural and artistic elements of two thousand years ago when, in 79 AD, the city was buried under volcanic ash from Mount Vesuvius. Various tours are on offer at the Archaeological Site of Pompeii and, depending on your interests, these can be chosen from: the daily life of a Roman town, the architecture, the artworks and the urban structure, as well as nature walks along the outer walls which provide a fascinating picture of the ancient city. A complete visit requires several days but, depending on the time you have available, tours of one hour, half a day or a full day are available. Don’t miss also a visit to the interesting site of Herculaneum.
