Vesuvius National Archaeological Park - Pompeii ruins
Starting from € 49.00
Our tour begins with all the comforts of an 8-seater Mercedes Van that will take you to Pompeii
, at the foot of Vesuvius. Famous on a planetary level, the excavations of Pompeii are the most famous archaeological site in the world, able to return to the visitor a Roman town, whose life has stood still on a distant morning in 79 AD, an era from which Vesuvius decided to erase it from the earthly orb.
The city owes its exceptional state of conservation to the way it was buried. Tons of ashes, pumice and lapilli covered it under a layer of over 6 meters, while preserving it from most of the ravages of time.
The same pyroclastic materials, cementing themselves around the invested bodies, have preserved their imprint, allowing archaeologists to return them to us in the attitudes assumed following short but atrocious agonies.
After regaining strength with a typical Neapolitan pizza in one of the Pompeii restaurants, we will continue our tour reaching the volcano that destroyed the city.
The bilingual authorized driver will take you to the top at a height of about 1000 meters, after which you will leave the car to continue the walk to the crater.Vesuvius
is one of the only two active volcanoes in Continental Europe and is about 1281 meters high, showing a typical "enclosure" shape dominated by the large cone structure. The entire Vesuvius National Park
boasts not only naturalistic beauties, but also an agricultural and wine production that is unique for its variety and originality of flavors and a visit to the crater is a must for tourists from all over the world.
The panorama that can be admired is of rare beauty and the route allows you to completely circumnavigate the entire volcanic building of Vesuvius and return to the starting point.
Even today, the most requested excursion by tourists is the path to the crater which culminates with the arrival at the Gran Cono: the excursion is not particularly strenuous, it is suitable for everyone and does not require specific trekking preparation. **** The tour can be integrated with a visit to the city of Herculaneum, not far from Pompeii, which had a similar fate in 79 AD. . The Herculaneum tour will allow you to get to know the life of the ancient city, quiet, elegant and characterized by elegant residences that enjoyed a breathtaking view over the entire Gulf of Naples. Despite the eruption, many materials have been preserved: food, ropes, papyrus, charred wooden objects such as boats, doors, beds and stairs, roofs and upper floors of buildings.
With the guided tour of the Herculaneum excavations it is possible to reconstruct the last moments of a city where you can still breathe the air of wealth and the atmosphere of quiet that preceded the catastrophe. ****
The return time to Naples is scheduled for 5:00 pm and you will return directly to your hotel, cruise ship or train station.

Customers say about us
Two of my co-workers had already used Imperial Car Service and I see why they raved about this service! They are all top notch customer-focused people. The owner, Michele, provides excellent recommendations on how to plan a great day and allows ample time in the plan to enjoy the sights or restaurants. He will even coordinate tour guides or make dinner reservations. And the drivers are a JOY to ride with.
Safe and professional driving (a LOT to expect in Italy!!) and friendly, fun conversation as you go. Both Paolo and Vincenzo drove us on our trip, and they are two new friends now! These guys are consummate professionals, but add a Napolitano flavor to the day that made it SO fun! We used them for 3 different trips during the week and it was relaxing to know they would be there, on time, to take care of us since this was our first trip to Italy. We will use them every time!
Friends in Westchester, NY highly recommended Paolo to us and he did not disappoint :) We went somewhere different every day with Paulo (Mon-Thurs) including a very early morning ride to Naples airport Friday. Paolo is very warm and friendly, so knowledgeable and has great recommendations. He really puts his all into his clients and personalizes the experiences...that’s huge! Highlights include: Vesuvius, Amalfi Coast drive (of course), lunch in Ravello with an amazing view, shopping in Sorrento & Positano, and listening to Paolo talk about the history, the countryside and his family. Definitely ask for Paolo!!
We was pick up by Paolo and his brother at the train station from Rome to Naples and drive to the villa that we booked for one week in Positano. Paolo and his Family has driven us the whole time we were there. They are always on time, very polite, very personable, very attentive that make your experience of the trip are so wonderful that you want to come back Positano again. I would recommend their service to anyone that planning a trip to Positano in the near future.
A friend in Boston told us to ask Imperial for Paolo as our driver, and we are so happy we did. He is truly a delight -- such a warm and knowledgeable and fun person.
He did everything he could to make the tours special for me and my family.
Without him, we would have missed the family run farms and wineries.
Thanks to him, we got to see the most beautiful areas of the Amalfi Coast, appreciating them even more with his explanations and guidance.
His driving, his professionalism and his English were all top notch, but mostly we will remember his wonderful company and the enjoyment we all took being together on our visit to beautiful Italy.
