Full description
After being picked up from the meeting point in Positano, transfer by minibus to Pompeii. Upon arrival, enjoy a 2-hour visit to the excavation site with your official guide. Learn about how due to its burial under a layer of ashes and lapilli, the town was forgotten for hundreds of years until its excavations in the 18th-century. After the visit, make the most of some free time and stop for lunch. In the early afternoon, continue to Mt. Vesuvius. Ride a bus up to 1000 meters above sea-level and then take a 30-minute walk. Once on the rim, meet an alpine guide who will give you information about the history of the crater. Take in the breath-taking views of the entire Gulf of Naples. Return to Positano during the afternoon.

    You definitely need more time to climb Vesuvius so that you can go to the end and enjoy it.
