DAY THREE – POMPEII, MOUNT VESUVIUS and HERCULANEUM
Founded in the 7th Century B.C, Pompeii is of great interest for historians. It is said that while Rome gives an insight into the monumental architecture of the Romans, Pompeii illustrates their everyday life. Pompeii had been a Roman colony since 80BC and prospered with the construction of many large temples, villas and palaces until 63AD when it was devastated by an earthquake.
Lunch in Pompeii
Afternoon Ascent to Mount Vesuvius and Visit to Herculaneum.

Positano sits in a splendid panoramic position on one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline. Its enchanting town centre of delightful pastel-hued houses surrounds the parish church of Santa Maria Assunta, its laneways are lined with quaint, colourful shops and its numerous beaches are world-famous. Positano appears like a vision clinging to the side of the mountain that plunges down to a small beach with some of the region's finest seafood restaurants. We will then continue our Scenic Drive to Amalfi, and Ravello, for fantastic dinner before heading back to the Hotel.
