Discover Naples and Pompeii on this full-day guided tour and learn its history through its top sites (and hidden ones too): Torre Annunziata, Mount Vesuvius, Maschio Angioino, Basilica of San Francesco di Paola, Piazza del Plebiscito, Castel dell’Ovo and many more.
Starting from meeting your local guide, hear how you will follow the "Highway of the Sun" through the fertile Roman countryside of the "Castelli Romani." Then, admire the Abbey of Montecassino and learn how it was damaged during the Second World War before descending towards the port of Mergellina. Marvel at the coastal views as you make your way to the fishing quarter of Santa Lucia and Naples' impressive Castel dell Ovo.
Next, you'll continue to Naples' historic city center, to see all the main highlights, such as the Piazza del Plebiscito, Royal Palace, Basilica of San Francesco di Paola, San Carlo Opera House, Gallery of Umberto I, and the imposing Maschio Angioino. Wave goodbye to Naples as you cross the valley of Mount Vesuvius, passing the towns of Ercolano, Torre del Greco, and Torre Annunziata before arriving at Pompeii. Indulge in lunch, then step back in time as you visit the extraordinary excavations and the scientific discoveries made 1,700 years after the devastating volcanic eruption. A visit to a coral and cameo factory, where you can admire and purchase items of the ancient craft that date back to Greek times, is also included to complete the day.
