This is one of our classic tour mixing art, archeology, culture and natural beauties.
Your full day excursion starts from Naples at the time previously arranged with your driver by one of our luxury car/van or minibus all equipped with air conditioning, WiFi and water at guests disposal.
Your driver will pick you up from the meeting point previously arranged with our staff and your first stop will be Pompeii.
Pompeii became a Roman colony in 80BC and it was enlarged with private and public buildings in the age of the Emperors Augustus. Pompeii was buried in August 79AD and it was rediscovered in the sixteenth century, but its excavation only began in 1748 thanks to the King of Naples Charles III of Bourbon.
Walking through Pompeii’s excavations is a unique experience. It is like taking a journey back in time, a journey on which you can drink in the atmosphere of public and private life, as they were lived in antiquity.
After this great full immersion in the history you will meet your driver at the meeting point to continue to the magic town of Ravello.
The first site to visit here is Villa Rufolo, a medieval residence with amazing gardens. This is the jewel in the crown of Ravello’s historical heritage. While you are walking around Ravello you can’t miss a visit at Villa Cimbrone. The villa and the amazing gardens have remote origins. The current complex at Villa Cimbrone consisting of the main building and the centuries-old six hectares park is universally recognized as one of the most important sites, in landscaping and botanical terms, produced by the English romantic culture in the Mediterranean area.
During this trip you can ask to your driver for suggestions about good and traditional restaurant to enjoy a great lunch.
If you have enough time you can also visit the Duomo in Ravello, the most convincing proof of the history and Faith of a city and its nobles families.
