Vesuvius Volcano once destroyed the entire city of Pompeii; citizens had no time to escape before they were killed by a thick layer of volcanic ash. This ruthless volcano wiped out the city, but preserved everything until the city was rediscovered in 1599. Our Naples shore excursion explores the best preserved ancient Roman city.

Our Naples shore excursion mainly deals with the archaeological site of Pompeii. From the port of Naples, our bus will reach the site in 40 minutes. Don’t forget to look for Mt. Vesuvius on the way!
After the eruption of this volcano in 79AD, the cities of Herculaneum and Pompeii were destroyed. The cities and their inhabitants were completely buried under ash and volcanic dust. Due to a lack of air and moisture, objects underneath were preserved, giving us great insight into what life was like here almost 2000 years ago.
In Pompeii there’s lots for our shore excursion to see; temples, theatres, villas, etc. We’ll visit the Temple of Apollo, the most important religious building in Pompeii; and the Macellum, where residents bought fruit and vegetables. At the House of the Faun, a luxurious aristocratic home we can see beautiful mosaics that displayed the wealth of the owner.
At the end of the shore excursion we’ll return to port for boarding.
