After half an hour’s drive, you can start to explore the archeological site of Pompeii. In 79 AD, the Vesuvius destroyed the entire town of Pompeii. Or so everyone thought… Everything remained preserved because of the speed the city got flooded by the lava and the tons of ash covered the city. During the nineteenth and twentieth century, archeologists dug up the hidden city and they found an entire civilization. The site of Pompeii is, therefore, a popular place to visit in Italy. Your guide will tell tales about the society who used to live there and how they came to their end.
Accessibility note: The route is 3 km long and is accessible for wheelchair users. Along the route, some ramps are installed that give access to the most important buildings on the site. Click here to read more about the accessibility of Pompeii in our blog post!
