Description

Your Herculaneum and Vesuvius Shore Excursion will begin as your Private English Speaking Driver picks you up from your cruise ship at the Port of Naples. He will greet you and chauffeur you in an elegant Mercedes Benz vehicle to Herculaneum. Herculaneum is an ancient city that was destroyed in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Many people know the history of Pompeii, but aren’t as familiar with Herculaneum, the sister city of Pompeii. Herculaneum is actually better preserved as many buildings and art works remained intact. You can explore the history and discover a lot about how ancient life was back then before the eruption. After an intriguing visit, your English Speaking Driver will chauffeur you to a fine restaurant where you will taste the rich and fresh flavors of the Campania region, including delicious wine. After lunch your Private Driver will accompany you to Mount Vesuvius. Although the last eruption was in 1944, the Vesuvius is the only active volcano in Europe, and one of the most dangerous in the world. You can climb to nearly the top of the mountain, which is approximately 1280 meters in height, and you can witness the beauty of this incredible crater that destroyed many lives in it’s fascinating history. After a wonderful and historical day on your Herculaneum and Vesuvius Shore Excursion, your English Speaking Driver will chauffeur you back to the Port of Naples.
