The ancient and natural Splendours of Pompeii and Amalfi

Fascination with Vesuvius and the destruction it wrought upon the delightful ancient cities situated in its shadows, principally Pompeii and Herculaneum, has never been keener, as new discoveries and new technologies allow us ever more precious testimonies of everyday life in the Roman period. This tour combines the archaeological treasures of the Vesuvian towns with a walking tour of the joyous beauty of the Amalfi Coast, which allows you to take in the wonders of the region in a new way. We alternate visits to Pompeii and Herculaneum with a climb of Vesuvius and walks along the paths which link Amalfi and its neighbouring towns and villages. We will be hiking the famous Path of the Gods which leads us to delightful Positano, along a route which offers breath-taking panoramic views of the coast. We also take in the sensual delights of the route linking Maiori and Minori which is infused with the scent of lemons. This is a specially crafted tour for those who are as passionate about archaeology as they are about appreciating the joys of spectacular hikes.

Tour highlights:

  • Spend a day in Pompeii visiting newly opened houses whose immediacy brings the Roman world to life
  • Hike the Path of the Gods linking the village of Agerola to the delightful city of Positano, whose brightly coloured houses are set into a natural amphitheatre
  • Climb Vesuvius, the petulant volcano whose eruptions have shaped the contour and history of the region
  • Explore the Piscina Mirabilis, the cavernous Roman cistern which fed their luxurious villas in the Bay of Naples
