    Lost Cities: Pompeii & Herculaneum from the Amalfi Coast

Lost Cities: Pompeii & Herculaneum from the Amalfi Coast

  • City: Pompeii, Amalfi Coast
  • Duration: Approximately 8 hours

Explore the mysteries of the magnificent buried cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum on this full-day private excursion from the Amalfi Coast.


In the first century AD the Roman Empire had many cities, but none located in a more beautiful setting than those lining the Bay of Naples in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. On August 23rd, 79 AD, Pompeii looked like any other bustling, prosperous, ancient city but just three days later, on August 26th, the city fell silent and the place itself had literally vanished from the face of the earth.

Gradually grass and vines covered the land where the towns had stood and the local people eventually forgot even their names. For more than 1,600 years, they remained buried until Herculaneum was rediscovered in 1738 and Pompeii ten years later in 1748. The imagination of Europe was ignited and suddenly, the classical world was in vogue. Philosophy, art, architecture, literature and even fashion drew upon the discoveries of Pompeii and Herculaneum for inspiration.

Now, more than 1,900 years after that fateful August morning, we are learning more and more about the last days of Pompeii and important discoveries are still being made. Begin your exploration of the mysteries of Pompeii and Herculaneum on this fascinating 8-hour excursion from anywhere on the Amalfi Coast.
