Explore one of the world's best-known volcanoes on a full-day tour from Naples. Set out for Mount Vesuvius, whose fiery eruption destroyed the city of Pompeii in 79 A.D. You'll also visit Herculaneum, an ancient Roman town that Vesuvius destroyed simultaneously. Wander its well-preserved streets and marvel at wooden roofs held intact under layers of mud for centuries. See the remains of villas and bath houses and step back in time to a place that Mother Nature literally stopped in its tracks.

Highlights

  • Full-day tour of Vesuvius and Herculaneum
  • See one of the world's most iconic volcanoes and visit the town of Herculaneum, Pompeii's lesser-known sibling
  • Wander Herculaneum's well-preserved streets, admiring homes and villas that have been literally frozen in time
  • Enjoy round-trip hotel transport

Head for the enormous volcano of Mt. Vesuvius, which looms across the bay from Naples, 5.6 mi (9 km) away from the city. It is the only mainland European volcano to have erupted in the last hundred years, although it is currently sleeping. Most famously it erupted in 79 AD, burying Pompeii and Herculaneum in ash, killing an estimated 10,000 to 25,000 people. Today it is still regarded as one of the most dangerous volcanoes because 3 million people live nearby and Vesuvius eruptions tend to be explosive rather than gentle. The last eruption was in March 1944 which destroyed several nearby villages.
Next, visit the excavation of the city of Herculaneum. Here is a city frozen in time, stopped in action when Vesuvius erupted. Remains of temples, villas, and streets have been uncovered and they look eerily like they might have 2,000 years ago. You will even get to see the people who were turned to stone trying to flee the city in its final hours. While it's somewhat overshadowed by Pompeii, Herculaneum is actually better preserved. Rather than being buried in hot ash, it was engulfed by a mudslide, thereby conserving a lot of the wooden beams roofs domestic items.
At the end of your visit to Herculaneum, you'll be returned to your original departure point.
