Excursion Pompeii Herculaneum

Shore Excursion

Luxury Limousine service. Full day 8 hrs.


Departure from Naples port  and return to Naples. You will be collected at the cruise’s pier by your private English speaking driver with a luxury vehicle and taken for a full-day fascinating tour through Pompeii ruins. The ruins of Pompeii, part of an ancient Roman city destroyed and buried by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A.D. can be visited during this tour. The remainder of the uncovered city is today buried under the new Pompeii rebuilt many years subsequent to the eruption. Archeological excavations are open to the public between 09:00 and 18:00 every day of the week; guides can be hired at the entrance or headphones can be rented, voicing explanations of the sites. Please note that since Pompeii is a popular area for tourists, we strongly recommend being cautious of your belongings!


Herculaneum is an ancient residential town of Greek origins, destroyed and buried in ashes, together with Pompeii, by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A.D.; it also offers a variety of beautiful scenery and invaluable arts. Excavations began by accident in 1709 when some workers were digging a well - they discovered a wall which was later found to be one of the stages of the ancient theatre. Later, there were many human skeletons uncovered at the ancient shoreline, suggesting that numerous inhabitants attempted to escape but perished when mountains collapsed and volcanic gases were released.
