Stop At: Parco Acheologico di Ercolano, Corso Resina, 187, 80056 Ercolano Italy

Herculaneum is rightfully considered better preserved than its bigger and more famous sister city, Pompeii.
While roofs collapsed under the weight of volcanic ash in Pompeii, many remained intact in Herculaneum due to the super hot pyroclastic flow that instantly entombed and solidified the city from bottom up. As a result, more frescoes and mosaics can be seen in these well-preserved buildings.
Here you can visit luxurious baths, the stunning Villa of Papyri that contained a library of scrolls, House of the Beautiful Courtyard, the impressive mosaics inside the House of Neptune and Amphitrite and more.
Since Herculaneum draws fewer visitors than its more famous sibling due to traffic conditions surrounding the site which discourages large tour buses, you don’t have to fight your way through large crowds.
With Herculaneum being much smaller than Pompeii, you can actually explore the entire site which is virtually impossible to do in Pompeii on limited time.
After your visit, it will be time to enjoy a nice Italian lunch in the restaurant of your choice.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Vesuvius National Park, Via Palazzo del Principe, 80044 Ottaviano Italy

At a height of approximately 4202 ft, this is also the smallest active volcano in the world but among the most dangerous of them all.
Once you reach near the summit you can purchase a ticket that allows you to enter the last segment of the volcano and hike the last 500 meters to the crater.
A local official guide may be available to accompany visitors as you near the massive crater left behind after the infamous eruption of 79 AD.
You will see lush dense vegetation that thrives on rich volcanic soil, a variety of lava rocks of different colors, and fumes rising out of the crater itself.
From the top of Mount Vesuvius on clear days, you get a most spectacular view of the Bay of Naples, Pompeii, Capri, and more.

Duration: 2 hours
