Ercolanum, Oplontis, Paestum
NATIONAL ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM : One of the richest museums of the world. Together with all the works of art and everyday life objects found in Pomnpei and Herculaneum, you will see the Farnese collection, huge sculptures from the Caracalla’s Baths, inherited by the king of Naples Charles of the Bourbon Family.
ERCOLANO AND OPLONTIS : Ercolano was a holiday resort at the Roman times, so famous for its namesake, Hercules, beautifully located at the foot of Vesuvio. The city was submerged in 79 A.D. by mud slides, leaving us an extraordinary amount of material witnessing its daily life. Oplontis was the residential villa which belonged to Poppea, Emperor Nero's wife, buried by the 79 A.D. eruption as well and shows its visitors an extraordinary amount of perfectly preserved frescoes decorations.
PAESTUM AND VELIA : Greek colonizers since the 11th century b.C. travelling around the Mediterranean founded in southern Italy some of their most flourishing colonies, like Paestum and Velia, both located in the most southern part of Campania. Paestum has the most beautiful and best preserved Greek temples of continental Italy, the best example of Doric archaic architecture; Velia was a sophisticated philosophical city and has the only Greek gate with a round arch.
PHLAEGREN FIELDS : The northern extremity of the bay of Naples, also known as the bay of Pozzuoli, is a mixture of landscape, history and archaeology. During the tour you’ll visit the ruins of Cuma, the first greek colony of the Mediterranean; Pozzuoli, which became during the Roman Empire, one of the richest ports of the Empire; the Piscina Mirabilis, an impressive water cistern dug out of a hill; and the Solfatara, an impressive example of a resting volcano, with bubbling mud and fumerolles, a moon-like scenary..
