Behold the majesty and might of Mount Vesuvius and discover the mysteries of ancient Herculaneum.

Don your walking shoes and begin your hike from a height of 3,000 feet. Follow your alpine guide up the snaking paths as you ascend another 1,000 feet to the crater walls. Peer into the plunging crater and watch as your guide illustrates the power bubbling beneath the surface by pointing out hot spots. From up here, you’ll also enjoy breathtaking views over the Bay of Naples.

After a delicious Italian lunch in a local restaurant at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, head to Herculaneum, the less famous but arguably better-preserved little sibling to Pompeii. Hear the secrets of the town which has been excavated from its protective mud as your guide takes you into the houses, shops and baths to look closely at colourful frescoes and fascinating artefacts from ancient daily life such as foodstuffs and fabrics.
