ROYAL PALACE IN CASERTA
Caserta is known as the "Versailles of Naples" because of the fabulous royal palace built here by Charles of Bourbon in the XVIII century. The palace is one of the most sumptuous in Italy with 1,200 rooms full of rich furnishings, frescoes, fabrics and works of art. However, the real highlight of a visit here is the park, with its magnificent gardens flanking a 75-metre-long series of fountains and cascades.
Pompeii is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. Every year millions of visitors come to see the spectacular ruins of this ancient Roman town destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79.

Mt Vesuvius is one of Naples’ most well-known landmarks, and one of the largest active volcanoes in the world. The mighty mountain standing forebodingly over the city and the bay is accessible by bus up to a height of 1,000 m. From there on the visit continues on foot with licensed guides to the edge of the crater.
A unique and very special city, famous all over the world for its warm and friendly people. Naples is one of the oldest cities in Europe, founded in the VII century B.C. by the Greeks and later conquered by the Romans. From the XI century onwards it was ruled by the Normans, Swabians, Angevins, Aragonese, Spanish and the Bourbons. Each of these foreign dominations left their mark on the city’s art, architecture and culinary traditions. You can feel the history most of all in the old town, a Unesco World Heritage Site and a treasure trove of unparalleled wonders.
Herculaneum, said to have been founded by Hercules, is a remarkably well-preserved Roman town. Built some time between 80 and 70 B.C., it was destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79. Unlike Pompeii, however, Herculaneum was not buried by lava and lapilli (burning fragments of pumice stone), but was submerged by thick mud which then solidified into soft tufa rock, thus preserving the many frescoes and artefacts you can still admire today. The town was discovered in 1709 and excavation work since has brought to light sumptuous villas, baths, theatres and even a villa thought to have belonged to the father-in-law of Julius Caesar, called Villa di Pisone (Villa dei Papiri). Much of the town is still buried and excavation work continues today.
Paestum is one of the most important archaeological sites in Italy. The Greek city of Poseidonia was founded here in the VII century B.C. and developed into a rich and flourishing centre of trade.

(actually a temple dedicated to the goddess Hera, the main divinity of Poseidonia), and the small museum housing the famous Tomb of the Diver.
The “Eternal City” is one of Europe’s greatest capitals and the centre of the Catholic Church. Rome is a cosmopolitan, dynamic city full of fabulous shops.
