We start our day leaving Naples and heading south to the famous archeological site of Pompeii, passing the alluring volcano of Vesuvius along the way. You will have 2 hours to visit this 2,000 year old Roman city which was all but annihilated in 79 AD when Vesuvius unexpectedly blew its top, covering the city and most of its inhabitants in 8 meters of ash and rubble. Here you are able to walk the streets of this town frozen in time where the temples, baths, villas, gardens and brothels from 2 centuries ago are still standing.

Come get to know these wines that are just now making a mark in the international wine circles, accompanied by an exquisite Italian lunch.
Following lunch we will make our way back to your ship, accompanied by the rush of the rolling hills and stunning countryside views on offer out your window.
