With this tour you'll visit three extraordinary sites in the surroundings of Pompeii
with private trasportation in Mercedes Minivan and a
professional local guide.
This tour will lead you into
one of the most extraordinary places in the archaeological area of Vesuvius: the villas at Stabiae, the Villas of Poppea at Oplontis and the Antiquarium in Boscoreale.
When Vesuvius erupted on 24 August AD 79, it engulfed the two flourishing Roman towns of Pompei and Herculaneum, as well as the wealthy villages of Oplontis and Stabiae.
Paradoxically, these locations see so small numbers of tourists, that it's likely that we will be the only visitors on the day of our tour. It gives us unique
opportunity to enjoy the fantastic interiors of Roman villas and some of the most interesting artefacts found in the area practically alone.
- Pick up at every port in Campania, client's hotel or other meeting locations.
- We'll visit the following sites located around Pompeii:
The Villas of St. Marco and Arianna at Stabiae: Two enormous villas of unprecedented scale and luxury were first discovered here in 1749.
- The so called
Villa of Poppea (attributed to Nero's notorious second wife) at Oplontis. Turned out to be a huge property of a high status nobleman (or woman). It probably belonged to the Emperor's Nero second wife.
The Antiquariium of Boscoreale where
all kinds of daily objects made of wood, metal, textiles are kept.
- Drop off at every port in Campania, client's hotel or other meeting locations.
