Excursions & day trips
Pompeii and Mt Vesuvius are the Beauty and the Beast of the Amalfi Coast. First, your guide will lead you through the streets of Pompeii. Buried under volcanic ash by Vesuvius's eruption of 79 AD, it has been clawed back from Mother Nature and is now a UNESCO-listed site. Discover richly decorated Roman villas and public spaces such as the Forum, Amphitheatre and gladiator barracks. In the afternoon, you'll visit Mt Vesuvius – the architect of Pompeii's destruction. Going by road to the 1,000m mark, a guide will then escort you to the summit to take in the views over the Bay of Naples. On your return, there's a visit to a coral factory.
