Pompeii, Herculaneum and Mount Vesuvius
Top

Pompeii

Your private local licensed Pompeii guide will take you on a fascinating tour through this once thriving empire of nearly 20,000 inhabitants that was completely covered in 30 feet of volcanic ash. Take in the baths, villas, theatres and wrestling grounds.

Herculaneum

Is an ancient residential town of Greek origins, a smaller town with a wealthier population at the time of the eruption. Covered by a torrent of mud rather than ash, the ruins are in some ways even better-preserved, and the site offers a variety of beautiful scenery and invaluable arts. Embark on a walking tour through the villas with portico gardens, fountains and baths, and admire the wall frescoes and floor mosaics. Excavations of Herculaneum began by accident in 1709 when some workers, digging a well, 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.

Vesuvius

Vesuvius has erupted about three dozen times. View the crater of Vesuvius, 1281 meters above sea level, by walking for approximately 45 minutes up the steep mount, as the road for vehicles terminates half way up this climb.

Departure from Sorrento, port of Naples or hotel. Meeting with your local guide and driver.

Your first destination is Gragnano, a lovely little town of the Gulf of Naples, located right in the heart of the Monti Lattari between the Gulf of Amalfi and the Gulf of Sorrento.

The town is well known all over the world for the production of the Pasta , for the tasty salami and the fantastic Provolone del Monaco, typical product of our mounts. The great macaroni are made with simple and genuine ingredients (water from the springs of Gragnano, hard wheat bran, passion, amore and fantasy).

There were and are three different kind of production: at home, where women compete in making the fusilli as fast as possible; in family run factories, where the tradition of the pasta pass from father to son always keeping in mind the quality of the product; later came the small industries, that allow all the Italians to have pasta daily.

Visit of a pasta factory of the area, where the secrets of ancient tradition are kept jealously. Here they use machines, respecting the time of the traditional way of making the pasta, in order to save all the nutritive and organoleptic characteristics of it. Thanks to this tour, you will have the great chance to see all the process to make this product: first phase of soft drying process; press to pug and draw the pasta both long and short cuts; drying on loom.

Lunch in a restaurant where the pasta is the queen on the tables, on the walls and in the air: you will see many different cuts of pasta from the best factories of Gragnano; on the walls there are ancient pictures about the history of the pasta here in town; and the menu is something peculiar.

You will then reach a great farm winery. It has got 25 fantastic hectare of vineyards located at the slopes of the Vesuvius. The volcanic soil is excellent for the grow of the vineyards as it is not hospitable to many of the dangerous  parasite of the grapes. Here you have the chance to take a tour across the vineyards and they will explain you all the process of the production of the wine. Finally you will enjoy the taste of three different Lacrima Christy (white, red and rosť) .

This tour is an authentic taste of our land and the best way to welcome a new amore into your heart.
