Our professional driver we'll wait for your arrival at a pre-arranged meeting point by your accommodation, holding a sign with your name on it, to start this excursion. On your arrival in Pompeii you'll meet our professional English-speaking guide for a two-hour tour of one of the most famous Roman ruins in the world.
This visit of Pompeii ruins covers the main places of the city life and you will explore with your tour guide the Forum, that is the main square of the city and that represented the political, economic and religious centre in which many events took place. The Forum of Pompeii is, in its kind, one of the best preserved from the antiquity. Our professional guide will then lead you to discover the Thermal Baths, an example of a Roman House, the famous plaster casts (a perfect replicas of the victim’s bodies caught in the moment of their death) and other incredible surprises that this ancient town has in store for you such as the graffiti still visible on many of the walls of Pompeii's buildings.
After that, a 45-minute drive and you'll be outside the Royal Palace of Caserta, a masterpiece by the architect Luigi Vanvitelli. There you can have 30 minutes of free time for a snack or a pizza (but, if you feel like, you can have a break outside Pompeii ruins before leaving for Caserta). Then, you’ll enter the Royal Palace with the same guide for another private tour (duration about 2 hours).
One of the first things that you'll admire is the magnificent "Scala Regia" (the Grand Staircase of Honour). It develops into a large central flight, obtained from a single block of marble, which is divided into two parallel flights from a landing where two marble lions are, symbolizing the power of reason and force. Then the visit to the Royal apartments will start. The Royal apartments with their opulence were home for the Kings for many years. Finally, our guide will give you some information about the immense Caserta Royal Park that stretches for three kilometers in length and about 120 hectares.
