From the pier, it's a 45-minute ride by motor coach 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 by motor coach.
