Pompeii & Pizza in Naples!
Day Trip FROM ROME TO POMPEII + Pizza Making Lunch in Naples
Everybody wants to do Pompeii… so here’s a fantastic day trip that’ll take care of everything, and get you there in style.
It’s not easy to see EVERYTHING that Italy has to offer in one trip. - The ancient monuments and ruins, the majestic countryside, the fascinating spectacles like Pompeii…
But luckily, this all-day voyage lets you extend the boundaries of your Roman stay, and gets you out of the city to see one of ancient Italy’s most unique and fascinating scenes, the easy way!
You probably already know that 2000 years ago, Mt. Vesuvius fatefully erupted and tragically blanketed the entire city of Pompeii, perfectly preserving an ancient way of life under feet of volcanic ash.
And ever since it was unearthed years ago, people have been flocking from all corners of the world to witness this truly unique sight.
Everybody wants to see the famous casts of buried residents, to step through the preserved ancient bath houses and town squares, and to experience what life was like on that day 2000 years ago.
Pompeii is one of the most well-preserved ruins ever. Offering up the vivid details of the daily lives and happenings of the Roman Empire. Filled to the brim with ancient theaters, temples, bathhouses, brothels, markets, and more. Standing still in time, as if abandoned yesterday, instead of nearly 2000 years ago.
It’s Pompeii. And it’s absolutely stunning.
It was known as a swanky vacation destination for the ultra-rich. Pompeii boasted dozens of luxury villas, covered in marble and mosaics, many of which are still standing today. They’re ready and waiting for you to discover just how decadent and rich they were. Like the House of the Faun, that covered an entire city block! You’ll also see the other side (or underside!) of the city and the people who served the wealthy. 2000 year old graffiti still adorns the walls of buildings!
Among the ancient streets, you’ll see how the citizens of the Roman empire lived… and how they died. Your archaeologist guide will take you through the events of that fateful day when Mount Vesuvius erupted, and covered Pompeii with 18 feet of hot ash and stone.It’s one heck of a story! And the ruins are there to prove it. The rich detail and highly preserved artifacts of this unique site can’t help but to make you feel as if you were a part of it all, right there, in a moment in time just before the ash started to fall…
Alongside the greats of Italy - the Colosseum, the Amalfi Coast, the fashion of Milan, we have the humble pizza. Bread, sauce and cheese. Simple flavors, world famous taste! In the heart of downtown Napoli, the very center of the birthplace of pizza itself, you’ll get down to the business of learning just how it’s done, and have a blast doing it!
Guided by an Italian pizza chef from start to finish, literally making the dough from scratch, then topping and firing your pizza to perfection, you will cover it all. And you know you’ll be eating your pizza creation at the end! Along with a cool drink and the authentic Neapolitan atmosphere - can you say, “Count me in!”
With the basics of pizza making under your belt you can bring this icon of Italian culture back home with you. Impress your guests when you nonchalantly bring a true Neapolitan pizza to the table and say - Buon Appetito!
It can be hard to “get it all in” when you’re staying Rome because you need travel arrangements, tickets, and to sort out a million other details. And that’s why this well-put-together day-trip shines!
Instead of trying to book the travel yourself, you can just:
Load up in Rome … Hop on the train … And get a whole day of Pompeii + a really fun pizza making experience in the birth place of pizza!
We’ve even taken care of the skip-the-line tickets and other arrangements, so you can focus on having a great time, and seeing this spectacular ancient city the right way. Not to mention the ease, comfort, and extra sight-seeing time you get when you let the experts manage the itinerary and specifics.
Yep… Just load up and have a fabulous adventure to one of history’s most intriguing, fascinating, and perfectly-preserved sites.
