A real history fest, this tour first takes you to Pompeii, which lay buried under volcanic ash for centuries. Amazingly, you can still see the remains of temples, villas and streets look more or less as they did 2,000 years ago. After a light lunch, you'll visit the summit of Mt Vesuvius, the only active volcano on Europe's mainland.
It was all the way back in 79AD when Mt Vesuvius blew its top and covered Pompeii in ash. But the incredible thing is that you can still see the remarkably well-preserved ruins of temples, villas and streets, seemingly frozen in time. And to really get your tour underway, you'll have an expert guide by your side to help bring the town's past to life.
After a light lunch, you'll begin your journey up Mt Vesuvius. As for the mighty fire mountain itself, this one's up alongside Krakatoa in the notoriety stakes. And it's the only active volcano on Europe's mainland. As you can imagine, the views from the top are phenomenal.
