Stroll through the excavated ruins of Pompeii and find a fascinating civilisation frozen in time.

During your panoramic drive, gaze out at Mount Vesuvius – the active volcano which looms 15 miles south east of Naples, dominating the landscape. Arriving at Pompeii, your escort will offer advice on key landmarks to visit before you explore the once-flourishing town at your own pace.

Marvel at the vibrant mosaics, intricate frescoes, the grand theatre and the fallen statues. Look closely and you’ll find relics of daily life – such as jars on the counter in the wine shop – and the poignant ‘plastered’ bodies of people who died here.
