Sunday – 31st October
After our buffet breakfast, we leave for Pompei where we visit the Sanctuary dedicated to Our Lady of Pompei. Here we shall witness the disastrous state that followed the tragic eruption of Mt.Vesuvius in 79AD. After a visit to the excavations in Pompei, we realize and understand better how the Romans used to live in those days. We stand on Flegrean soil, so close to Vesuvius and this has definitely left its effects on the whole surrounding area. A great tourist attraction indeed!!!!! We continue on our road to Pozzuoli where we admire the Amphitheatre Flavio, the Temple of Serapide, the Solfatara, and Rione Terra. Back in the hotel for a well-deserved dinner and some relaxation from a long day so full of culture and history.
