T his superb tour to Pompeii, Capri and the Bay of Naples will leave a lasting impression on first-time visitors. The Greeks, Phoenicians and Saracens all left their mark on a stunning coastline, but it was the Roman city of Pompeii that suffered the cruellest fate when it was buried by mud and ash during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD79. The city has been largely excavated so it remains frozen in time in the shadow of the volcano, but visitors can’t help being mesmerised by its haunting beauty.
You will also get the chance to wander the clifftop towns along the stunning Amalfi Coast, and no visit would be complete without a tour of Sorrento or a boat trip to Capri. This jewel in the Mediterranean rises from the sea like an ancient monolith. Discover Emperor Tiberius’ magnificent Villa Jovis, 300 metres above the bay, or take a chairlift to the island’s summit at Monte Solaro. You can then relax on the boat for the trip back to the mainland where dinner awaits in a superb seafood restaurant.
