9 HRS – NAPLES & POMPEII TOUR
Our English speaking driver will be waiting for you near the gangway of your ship at the time at 8 AM with the vehicle requested to take you to Naples. Neapolis, whose name stems from the Greek language meaning new city, was first established at the base of the Vesuvius by colonial settlers from Greater Greece in the 5th century B.C. Located in a strategic position for the domination of the Mediterranean, in 290 B.C., Naples passed under the control of the Romans (who else?) and became an important cultural centre. Nowadays Naples is still rich in history with buildings, churches and monuments dating back centuries. During this tour you will be able to visit the National Museum which is the oldest and most important archaeological museum in Europe. Then you will see the Royal Palace, the Piazza Plebiscito, the Piazza Municipio with its huge medieval castle the “Maschio Angioino” and the San Carlo Opera House and the historical centre. Afterwards, we’re off to Pompeii. Pompeii was a thriving, noisy market town of about 20.000 inhabitants, filled with shops and bars and small family factories. Traders constantly came and went, while wine and a potent fish sauce were Pompeii’s most popular exports.
On the day Vesuvius erupted, Pompeii was the scene of a different but no less deadly series of catastrophes. Many stones showered down both on Pompeii and Herculaneum, while dense layers of ash settled at the rate of about 10 inches per hour. Roofs began to collapse and the town was in almost total darkness. The people who died waited too long inside their homes, trapped by fallen timbers and were unable to breath due to the volcano gas.
Plan on spending at least two hours here. The most important sites are accessible to the public and others can be entered with a guide. Pompeii is the most visited excavation site in Italy.
Overwhelmed by the eruption of the Vesuvius in the year 79 A.C. the city of Pompeii has for centuries captivated archaeologists from all over the world.
This will give you the best opportunity to discover the greatest witness of the way of life at the times of the Roman Empire. Return to the port around 5 pm.
