ITINERARY:

Your tour begins in the area of Campania region (Naples-Salerno-Amalfi-Positano etc. etc.) with a Veichle ride to the Pompeii ruins.
Pompeii is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Here you’ll discover the archeological excavations of a lost city buried deep beneath the ash when Mt. Vesuvius violently erupted in 79 AD.
It was a monumental natural disaster that killed thousands and entombed the city under ash.
Explore the grounds on this 2 hours walking tour of the excavated city ; how they entertained, decorated and lived.
The eruption of Vesuvius preserved a moment in time more than 2,000 years ago, so that we may learn about the lives of the ancient Romans.
Pompeii before the eruption was known as a vacation community for high society.
It had a forum, amphitheater, gymnasium, shops and an aqueduct that delivered water for irrigation, fountains and private baths.
Some of the ruins are remarkably preserved with elaborately detailed mosaics and colorful frescoes decorating the interiors of wealthy homeowners’ villas.

A wine and food pairing at a scenic vineyard located on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius is your next adventure.
A vineyard tour introduces you to the geologic conformation of Vesuvius slopes, the rare characteristics of volcanic soil and a marvelous microclimate come together in one of Italy’s most interesting wine producing regions. You’ll also visit the cellars for insight into the process by which the grapes are turned into the vintner’s liquid creations.

At the end of our day we’ll visit The earliest urban settlement, possibly Phoenician, was founded on the Parthenope hill (supposedly where the body of the Siren washed ashore after her rejection by Odysseus); this settlement was conquered by Greek colonists from Rhodes around the 10th century BC.
Other Greek colonists, perhaps from Cumae, founded the nearby settlement of Neapolis or “new city” in about 600 BC. NAPOLI
Much of the area of interest to tourists still centers on the site of the Greek and Roman city, on the hills of Capodimonte and Vomero overlooking it, and on the area along the waterfront from the “New” Castle to Capo Posillipo.
The food is some of the best in Italy and also some of the most familiar to many of us.
Pizza was invented in Naples, and it’s the best in the world.
The wine, though not as well known as that of other regions, is good and getting better.
The coffee is the best in Italy.
The street life alone is worth the trip.
The saying (often attributed to Goethe) goes “See Naples and Die”.
