The car will pick you up at your hotel in Rome, followed by a transfer to Pompeii, the most important archeological site in the world. Set to the southwest of Mt. Vesuvius and not far from the Gulf of Naples, Pompeii is known throughout the world for its tragic destruction.
In 79 AD, Mt. Vesuvius violently erupted and the resulting ash was deposited upon nearby Pompeii. However, the city's remains that were excavated at the end of the 18th century continue to preserve the evidence of daily life at that tragic moment. It's as if the city had miraculously come to life
once more. You will see a bakery, theatre, gymnasium and public bath among many other areas. All stand as sentinels to a time and lifestyle literally sucked breathless in a split second, and then entombed for almost 2 millennium.
As you walk among the remains of the city that was buried beneath 30 feet of ash, you will realize that nothing compares to the magic and mystery of Pompeii. Daily life, religious beliefs and government organizations will be discussed by your knowledgeable tour guide. You will then be off to the picturesque and peaceful fishing village of Positano. It is renown to be Europe's most beautiful seascape.
Your lunch in a local restaurant will be a memorable one as you gaze out into the Tyrrhenian Sea. You will then be able to take a fine stroll among the terraced and colorful houses, as well as the many shops with creations by local artisans.
You'll then enjoy your scenic motor tour on the way back to Rome.
