The journey between Naples and Herculaneum takes apx 20 minutes. During the passage your sight is immediately captured by the impressive size of the Mount Vesuvius. The slope is covered by vineyards and fruit trees while its crater appears like suspended into the sky. It’s like a silent giant, but still active. Turning your eyes to the right you recognize the silhouette of the Bay of Naples with the Peninsula of Sorrento in the background and the island of Capri in a preeminent position.
In Herculaneum you will meet your licensed guide. He/She is specialized in family tours and properly trained to run our Herculaneum for Kids. It’s a special two hours tour thought and designed for children from 6 to 11 years of age who want to learn about the facts of the eruption fo 79AD, the history of Herculaneum and the daily life of its past inhabitants. During the walking tour, while the guide shows and comments about certain places such as a private residence, a workshop or a public building the children will attach on an interactive map some stickers representing the people who they would have found in those places. Moreover the guide will involve them to “mime places and persons” to answer to trick questions and pre-arranged riddles. So that your children will progressively become the guides and you all follow them through the Ruins. It’s dynamic, informative and fun! .
After that the tour continues with a spectacular Driving along the Sorrento first and the Amalfi Coastal line after. Your driver will comment about the places and corners you find on the way and he will give you the chance to get off the vehicle to take pictures of the marvelous sceneries and sea views arising in front of you.
Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Ravello, Praiano, are just some of the charming villages of the Amalfi Coast. They look like engraved into the rock and totally opened onto the sea, the wind and the sun. In this tour time is an essential factor and to avoid the risk to spend too much time in the vehicle we suggest to explore in depth two of them.
Moreover do not miss the opportunity to enjoy a typical genuine Italian lunch followed by a glass of a famous local wine.
After such an intense day your driver will softly drive you back to the departure point or wherever you wish the tour end.
