POMPEI & VESUVIUS – MONDAY, WEDNESDAY & THURSDAYS 8am Amalfi €125 – (ch. €75) EU 11-17yo 103€ 18-24yo 109€
With its excavated area, extending for approx 44 ha, and the preservation state of its buildings, due to the particular burial, under a blanket of 6 meter of ash and rock, Pompeii can be considered the only archaeological site which gives the real image of a Roman city. On the way, you may find the coach makes a short stop at a coral factory, time permitting, also to use toilet. After the visit, you will stop at a nearby restaurant for lunch (optional) break. After lunch a 50 minute coach journey will take you 200m from the top of Mount Vesuvius, the best known volcano on earth, where you can climb the rest of the way to the crater-edge. Arrival back on the coast in the late afternoon.
Shuttle from: Positano € 15 – Praiano € 10 -Emerald Cave 6€
POMPEI EXPRESS – TUESDAY & SATURDAY 8am Amalfi – € 97 – (ch. €50) EU 11-17yo 75€ 18-24yo 80€
As the excursion above, but only visiting the site of Pompeii. You will be back on the coast by about 3.00pm.
Shuttle from: Positano € 15 – Praiano € 10 -Emerald Cave 6€
HERCULANEUM & POMPEII – SUNDAY 8am Amalfi – € 125 – (ch. €75) EU 11-17yo 103€ 18-24yo 109€
On this trip besides Pompeii you also visit Herculaneum. Ercolano (in Italian) is completely different from Pompeii, it is only 15 acres. It was destroyed by mud, rather than pumice and lava therefore was not crushed down by the weight of the debris and was a Roman holiday town rather than a busy, important town. The difference is quite amazing! The mud has preserved mosaics, the wooden beams that divided the lower and upper floors of the houses and shops, and the frescos on the walls of the gymnasiums and sauna baths. A missed visit to Herclaneum is a real pity! Arrival back is approx 6.00pm.
Shuttle from: Positano € 15 – Praiano € 10 -Emerald Cave 6€
