A day completely immersed in the local history exploring the famous archaeological site of Herculaneum and Mount Vesuvius with this 8-hour shore excursion followed by lunch at winery based on the volcano itself.
Travel to each site in a comfortable Mercedes vehicle with a local driver/guide who’ll give you important information about the history and the culture of the places that you will visit. Explore the archaeological site buried by the volcano Vesuvius that erupted in 79 AD.
In contrast to modern Ercolano, classical Herculaneum was a peaceful fishing and port town of about 4000 inhabitants, and something of a resort for wealthy Romans and Campanians.
Herculaneum’s fate paralleled that of nearby Pompeii. Destroyed by an earthquake in AD 63, it was completely submerged in the AD 79 eruption of Mt Vesuvius. However, as it was much closer to the volcano than Pompeii, it drowned in a 16m-thick sea of mud rather than in the lapilli (burning pumice stone) and ash that rained down on Pompeii. This essentially fossilised the town, ensuring that even delicate items, like furniture and clothing, were discovered remarkably well preserved.
The town was rediscovered in 1709 and amateur excavations were carried out intermittently until 1874, with many finds being carted off to Naples to decorate the houses of the well-to-do or to end up in museums. Serious archaeological work began again in 1927 and continues to this day.
Looming above the Bay of Naples, Mt. Vesuvius erupted in AD 79 and covered Pompeii in ash, preserving parts of the ancient city that can still be seen today.
The volcano itself is still active—the only active one in continental Europe—and, though dormant, is considered to be one of the world’s most dangerous volcanoes. Despite this, many visitors hike the mountain to see its infamous crater and are rewarded with stunning views of Pompeii, the Bay of Naples, and the surrounding Italian countryside.
A trip to the volcano itself provides the best understanding of the area and its impact on the region’s history. A hike up the mountain begins in Mount Vesuvius National Park, which has nine nature trails and allows for summit access. The crater’s lunar landscape is otherworldly, and the views are tough to beat.
If we want to find a positive aspect of the eruption of the Vesuvius in 79 D.C. is that the ash remained by it worked as a fertilizer for the lands surrounding the volcano, hence all the beautiful wine farms.
Here you will be welcomed by the warm staff of the farm, who will first make you taste some of the finest wines that the lands have to offer to then proceed to take you on a tour of the beautiful and luscious vineyards of the farm, after the tour the staff will take you inside for lunch where you will have the chance to satisfy your appetite with a number of delicacies rigorously cooked with the freshest and most genuine ingredients of the region.
The experience at the wine farm is truly one that can give pleasure to all of your senses, and one that you really shouldn’t miss out on!
