Itinerary

Vesuvius

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.

Pompeii

It is almost ironic how thanks to such a devastating event like the eruption of mount Vesuvius in 79 D.C., today we have the possibility to visit one of the most fascinating locations in the world.
Once in the ruins you really have the sensation to be transported nearly two millennia back in history, the city has been almost perfectly preserved by the layers of crystallized ashes remained by the Vesuvius, to the point that you will even see the casts of the citizens of Pompeii frozen in time in the last moments of their lives.
The many frescos, most of which are still very well preserved, will gradually tell you the story of this ancient city, you will learn about the way of the people that lived there, you will get to know the names and the lives of notorius inhabitants of the city, you will see with your eyes what where the customs, the virtues and the vices of a community that on the fatal day of August the 24th, 79 AD., met their end by the eruption of mount Vesuvius, which with very little warning wiped the population of this bustling and flourishing city.

wine farm on mount vesuvius

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!
