To know more about your boat trip...

The excavations of Pompeii have been a Unesco Heritage site since 1997. The exceptional state of conservation of the city is due to the terrible eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, when the ash buried men and things under a thick blanket of dust at a depth of about 6 meters. For 1700 years Pompeii was buried, erased from the face of the earth. Sheltered from the elements of the time, the shape of the bodies still intent on their daily activities has remained intact to this day. The first discoveries and objects occured from 1748 and even today new remains are brought to light, because Pompeii lives…

      A FAB day!

      Donald J M
      What a great day! The tour didn’t go quite the way planned but was still Fun! Josephine,our guide, was AB FAB! She made the tour! Upbeat, positive and very energetic! We only had a brief time on the boat because of rough seas.... Our small group was essential in that it was easier to keep up with! Pompei was fascinating! Unfortunately when we reached Mt. Vesuvius it started storming so our group decided not to get out of the van! By that time we were all worn out anyway! Highly recommend this tour I learned a lot and met some great people! AB FAB day!

      In-depth tour of Pompeii

      We started the day at 7:45am pick up from Positano via boat. We had lots of time at Mount Vesuvius which we didn’t need the full 2 hours. Pompeii tour has an experienced guide (Guisi) and we enjoyed it. If going in summer, pack a small bag with lots of water and sunscreen! There isn’t much respite from the sun. It was a long day and we returned back to hotel around 7:30/8pm. The packed lunch is more of a snack but there is time to buy proper lunch. Definitely wear enclosed shoes as lots of walking and the mountain is very dusty. I would recommend this tour.
