What to expect

Frozen in time by tragedy, Pompeii and Herculaneum are a must-visit when in the Amalfi Coast. These two Roman cities were buried under volcanic ash following a catastrophic eruption by Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD. Now uncovered, both are UNESCO World Heritage Sites and offer a fascinating and at times haunting insight into life in classical times.

First up, your guide will lead you through the streets of Pompeii and show you the richly decorated villas of the Roman upper classes – you can still see frescoes on the walls – as well as public spaces such as the Forum. Stroll along its cobbled streets as you gaze at the remains of temples and villas.

In the afternoon, head to the archaeological site of Herculaneum. Here, you'll learn about this former seaside town clawed back from oblivion. You'll see the boathouses that are the final resting place of many refugees as well as marble floors, mosaics and frescoes.
