What to expect

Temples and mozzarella might not work as pizza toppings but for a cultural daytrip, they're a perfect match. You'll head south to Paestum, a small village with a big reputation, to explore its three well-preserved Greek temples and to visit a mozzarella farm.

First up is a journey back in time to the ancient Greek city of Paestum. Amid its ruins stand three colossal temples – those of Hera, Athena and Neptune. The Second Temple of Hera is in remarkably good nick, considering it's about 2,500 years old. There's also a great museum on site, where you'll discover finds excavated from the site and learn about life in ancient Paestum.

We'll then drop into the mozzarella farm – the Campania region is the heartland of buffalo mozzarella. Here, you'll learn how water buffalo are milked, before a chance to try real fresh mozzarella made by the experts. You'll have free time for lunch - bring your own or check out the farm's bistro – before heading back to your hotel in the afternoon.

    Pompeii Half-day Tour

    Of all the Roman ruins in Italy, none is as poignant or fascinating as Pompeii. Buried under volcanic ash by the 79 AD eruption of Mt Vesuvius – which still looms large in the distance – Pompeii brings to life ancient Rome. You'll tread the cobbled streets brought to life by a guided commentary through headsets. All the major highlights here are covered – the forum, thermal baths, gymnasium and the market piazzas. You can still see frescoes on the walls of the homes of the Roman elite. Walking through its ruins is like leafing through the pages of a living history book.

    Pompeii & Vesuvius Tour with AR Glasses

    A real history fest, this tour takes place in Pompeii, the city that lay buried for centuries. It was all the way back in 79AD when Mt Vesuvius blew its top and covered Pompeii in ash. But the incredible thing is that you can still see remains of temples, villas and streets look more or less as they did 2,000 years ago. You'll have skip-the-line entry to get your tour underway with complete ease, and the use of Augmented Reality glasses to bring the town's past to life. After a light lunch, you'll begin your journey up Mt Vesuvius, the only active volcano on Europe's mainland. As you can imagine, the views from the top are phenomenal.
