Meeting point and pick-up at the cruise ship terminal, leaving the port, you will drive south via the motorway towards the archeological site of Herculaneum, one of the most famous excavation in the world.
You will be guided in the Forum, Herculaneum's main square, the Roman Baths, its temples and porticoes. 5,000 people lived in this provincial town, of which 2,000 perished in the horrifying eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79. 75 feet of solidified mud covered Herculaneum. A lot of this has been removed over the last 300 years to reveal the details of everyday life. There a flourishing civilization, buried for 1,700 years, has been brought to life again and where you can see how the citizens of the greatest empire the world has ever known lived and loved, worked and played, ate and drank and died. After the guided tour you continue your scenic drive along the slopes of mount Vesuvius, Europe's only still-active volcano that is located on the west coast of Naples.
At approximately 3,000 feet, begin your trek on foot over narrow paths that zigzag up to the mountain another 1,000 feet. Once on the rim of the crater walls, you will skirt the edge with an official alpine guide while enjoying the panoramic views that includes Naples and its bay. You will descend along the narrow paths to the parking lot and proceed back to the port.
