A Dutch-speaking guide leads this tour (or a guide with a Dutch interpreter). A limited number of Dutch guides and interpreters are available in this port; book early to avoid disappointment. This is not a bilingual tour; please see The Ruins of Pompeii for the same tour guided in English.
From the pier, it's a 45-minute ride by motorcoach to the remarkable ruins of Pompeii, perfectly preserved since the eruption of Mt Vesuvius in AD 79.
On a guided walking tour you will learn about the excavation techniques that have uncovered this city remarkably intact, and what the residents were doing at the time of the eruption. Gain an insight into the lives of the ancient Romans as you discover baths, theatres, temples, markets and the huge forum.
A stop at a local cameo factory is included before your return to the ship and the present day.
Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience. Tour requires a significant amount of walking. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Shade is limited; to avoid sunburn, wear light, long clothing suitable for use as a cover-up. Bring a hat and sunglasses; wear biodegradable sunscreen. Bring bottled water. Backpacks and large bags are not allowed inside the Pompeii excavation site.
