Program of the port tour
As soon as you disembark from your ship in the port of Naples, you will find your private driver waiting to whisk you off in the direction of Pompei.
Naples to Pompeii Ruins
Sit back and relax for about 40 minutes, until we reach the most amazingly preserved archaeological site in the world! Here we will hand you over to an authorized guide who will take you around the ruins for approx. 2 hours. They will tell you all about ancient Rome and the amazing stories and anecdotes. Discover the Ancient Roman way of life in amongst the shops, thermal baths and religious buildings. They can even let you see the brothel in all its glory!
After you have finished here, you will be taken to the winery for a well-deserved glass of wine.
Wine tasting from the slopes of Vesuvius;
Due to the high mineral content left over from the magma, the slopes of Mount Vesuvius have very fertile soil. This makes it ideal terrain especially for growing grape vines. The wine produced in this area is called “Lacryma Christi” (tears of Christ) which is a very rich and complex wine. On arrival an expert will show you around the vinyards & explain the process of turning grapes into wine. You then get to try 4 different versions of this wine – red, white, rosé & sparkling – all accompanied by some local specialty cheeses, and bruschetta made with tomatoes amongst other things. From here we will head off to Vesuvio itself.
Walking tour on Mount Vesuvius
After a short drive we will reach the confines of the National Park of Vesuvius – this is where your walking tour will begin. You will be dropped off at the ticket office by your driver. Heading towards the crater you will get the chance to take in the biodiversity of this area. There is quite a bit of wild life to see if we are lucky, including foxes, dormice & the falcon high above. At the top you can take in the breathtaking view – then we will return following the same route down. At the bottom your driver will be waiting to take you back to the port in perfect time.
