Bare Bones Pompeii
Pompeii has so much to offer the intrepid traveller – and even more when explored with an expert. Our 5-day tour of the sites around Vesuvius offers you just that: the insightful company and real-life stories of knowledgeable Local Guides, who know the area well. Ongoing discoveries here mean there has never been a better time to visit this extraordinary Roman town, which was tragically buried – and almost impeccably preserved – by volcanic ash and pumice in AD 79. A plethora of other remarkable Roman sites will help you build a full and compelling picture of ancient life as it was when Vesuvius left its irrevocable mark. Visit Herculaneum, where the tall houses of noblemen were buried to their rooftops and travel to Naples, for a close look at the area’s most celebrated artefacts. You will also have plenty of free time to get to know the region at your own pace – with opportunities to climb the mighty volcano yourself, enter the luxurious world of Roman coastal villas at Oplontis or sit back with a glass of Aglianico wine in the shade of Italian pines.
