Rome, having been the centre of one of the globe's greatest civilizations ever, has exerted a huge influence over the world in its c. 2,500 years of existence. The history of Rome provides the beauty you see today. The eternal city, as it is known is the famous home of the Roman Empire, the Seven Hills, La Dolce Vita (sweet life), Vatican City, Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and St. Peter's Basilica.
With this package you will discover the eternal city of Rome with our 3 night package deal. You will also see the best of the Ancient cities of Naples and Pompeii with a full day guided tour. A journey to discover art, history, folklore and archaeology in one of the most typical regions of southern Italy. Leaving Rome in a southerly direction, we take the "Highway of the Sun" crossing the fertile Roman countryside through the area known as the ‘Castelli Romani'. Approximately halfway along the highway, you will be able to see the Abbey of Montecassino, noted for its famous battle and complete destruction during the Second World War. Descending towards Naples and the port of Mergellina whilst following the coastal road, we arrive in the ancient fishing quarter of Santa Lucia and see the impressive Castel dell'Ovo (photo stop). The city tour continues crossing the historical centre to see Piazza del Plebiscito, the Royal Palace, the Basilica of San Francesco di Paola, the San Carlo Opera House, the Gallery of Umberto I and the imposing Maschio Angioino. Upon leaving the city, we cross a fertile valley, Mount Vesuvius, passing the towns of Ercolano, Torre del Greco and Torre Annunziata before finally arriving at Pompeii, where we stop first for lunch. After that we will visit the excavations on foot with a local guide on an archaeological journey through the ancient city. In approximately 2 hours you will see some of what has been discovered in more than 1,700 years since Pompeii was covered by ashes during the eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79 AD. Through the remains and ruins of this ancient city, we can picture the everyday life of the Imperial Age and imagine the panic felt by the people in those last few minutes before the city was so disastrously buried. At the end of the visit to Pompeii we will return to the coach for a journey of approximately 3 hours back to Rome.
