VESUVIO AND PAESTUM
Tour up to a maximum of 4 people
The Vesuvius eruption in 79 AD flooded with lava all the little Vesuvius towns in the nearby Vesuvius is certainly the most famous and dangerous volcano in the world. Indeed it is not the highest volcano in the world but certainly the most monitored (all together with all the volcanoes in the Phlegraean Fields and Ischia). its history has inextricably linked to the destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum with all the rest of the Vesuvius little towns such as Stabia and Oplontis. Vesuvius is the only active volcano of mainland Europe and its shape inspires the curiosity and fear of all people living on its slopes, or just walking at his sight. One thing is sure: the scenario of the Gulf of Naples and Mount Vesuvius dominating on the sea is probably one of the most beautiful natural wonders of our planet! Climbing up to the crater means to relax, to have a best moment of real trek and to breath the real history of this volcano. Its destructive power has earned since ancient times the respect of the local and passing people Paestum is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. It is located right on the edge of the park of Cilento and its beauty depends on the three Doric temples. Those ones let be so suggestive and memorable walking through the archaeological park of Poseidon. It is very nice to visit also the Greek walls that still surround the ancient city by resisting to the time. It is almost a 5 km of a fortified circuit, the best preserved of all the Magna Grecia.
