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.

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. You can visit the Temple of Poseidon, the Temple of Ceres, the so-called Basilica dating from the VI century B.C. (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. Despite the hectic nature of modern life, it is still able to enchant visitors with its monuments and historic buildings such as Villa Borghese, Palazzo di Giustizia, Castel Sant’Angelo, the Colosseum, Piazza di Spagna, the Trevi Fountain, Saint Peter’s Basilica, Saint Peter’s Square and the Papal apartments, where every Sunday morning the Pope greets crowds of worshippers.

A great opportunity to spend a relaxing day out enjoying the spectacular scenery of the Amalfi Coast and the island of Capri. During the cruise, on board of a comfortable yacht equipped with sun terrace, showers, deckchairs and restaurant, you will have the chance to stop at Capri for a swim in the island’s impossibly azure sea and visit two of the most picturesque towns on the coast, Amalfi and Positano.
