Amalfi Coast, Italy

Step back in time when you walk the ghostly streets of Pompeii. Climb to the summit of Mount Vesuvius with A&K’s guide and experience what it must have felt like in AD 79 when the volcano erupted destroying the once-opulent town below. Today, you’ll discover one of the world’s most famous archaeological sites where people have literally been frozen in time.

Enjoy this slice of living history with the whole family when you spend the day touring these historic sites with our expert. Upon arrival at Pompeii you will enjoy a walking tour. This will take you down Roman streets and around millenia-old houses, temples, shops, cafes, amphitheatres and brothels which were covered in burning pumice stone at the time of the cataclysmic eruption. This snapshot of life during the Roman Empire, which was preserved under ash until excavation, is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

After exploring Pompeii, you will travel to Mount Vesuvius itself. Standing at 1,281 meters high, its historic eruption also destroyed Stabiae and Herculaneum. Climb to the summit with your guide and admire the splendid views across the Bay of Naples. Enjoy a picture-perfect moment from the top of this active volcano. Capture the shimmering Amalfi Coast as the sun begins to set.

Additional notes about the tour
