Неапол

Naples offers a mix of breathtaking beauty and a strong sense of life being lived to its limits.
Squeezed between Vesuvius, Europe’s second-largest active volcano on one side and the sulphurous springs and boiling mud pools of the Flegrean fields on the other, Naples and its famous blue bay is a ‘must-see’ city. Visitors can also reach historic Pompeii, the delightful island of Capri and beautiful, sleepy Sorrento from here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

POMPEII

 

Цена: € 51 на възрастен, € 36 на дете

 

Duration: approx. 4 hours

 

Your archaeological tour begins with a drive towards Pompeii, a once thriving town that was completely buried by lava, rubble and ash during the catastrophic eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79. It then lay hidden and perfectly preserved under tonnes of volcanic ash for almost 1,700 years before being accidentally rediscovered in the mid-18th century and then subsequently being excavated. The many artefacts that were found, especially items of daily life such as bread and honey, give the visitor a glimpse of the lives these ancient Romans lived. A fascinating guided walking tour will provide insight into the history of this amazing and very large archaeological site. A stop will also be made at a local coral factory on your return journey to the ship.

Please note: this excursion includes long walking on uneven ground; there are big slabs of stone in the streets of Pompeii so this tour is not suitable for guests with mobility problems or in a wheelchair.

EXCURSION TO VESUVIUS

 

Цена: € 48 на възрастен, € 34 на дете

 

Duration: approx. 4 hours

 

The beautiful Bay of Naples in the south of Italy is dominated by the town’s most iconic landmark: Mount Vesuvius, whose main cone currently reaches nearly 1,300 metres. While the slopes are marked by lava flows, a testament to earlier eruptions, they also feature heavy vegetation with vineyards in the foothills as well as scrubland and forestation higher up. Mount Vesuvius’ best-known eruption occurred in A.D. 79 and resulted in the destruction of two cities: Pompeii and Herculaneum, which were only rediscovered in the 18th century. An enjoyable guided walking tour will take you to the crater, from which point you can see a bed of lava and look out over the beautiful Gulf of Naples. Your return journey to the ship will give you more opportunity to admire the landscape’s lovely vistas.

Please note: wear comfortable walking shoes for the 30-minute climb up to the crater. In case of bad weather the tour programme will take guests on a panoramic tour of Naples.

 

 

 

THE ROYAL PALACE OF CASERTA

 

Цена: € 44 на възрастен, € 31 на дете

 

Duration: approx. 4 hours

 

A 45-minute bus transfer will take you to Caserta to visit the magnificent Royal Palace, built by Carlo III of Bourbon, one of the Bourbon kings of Naples.
