    Pompeii Archaeological Park
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission excluded
    Is the most-visited archaeological site in the world, due to its many and well-preserved ruins, left behind by a city buried in Vesuvius’s wake in the year 79 A.D. The ancient site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997. Pay your entrance fee and then head inside to explore independently. Or, if you’ve upgraded, join up with an expert guide to begin your tour. Gain fascinating insight into the everyday life of the Imperial era as you stroll through the well-preserved streets, passing houses and public buildings that have been locked in time by the volcanic ash. See the ancient piazza and the impressive limestone columns of the Forum, where elections and other political and business events would have taken place during Roman times. Then, perhaps head to the thermal baths, where many of Pompeii’s inhabitants would have bathed and socialized. Marvel at the remains of the Teatro Grande, an impressive theater that once sat some 5,000 people, and stop by the Lupanar, a brothel decorated with eye-popping frescoes. After exploring the site, hop back inside your private minivan for your return journey to Rome. Along the way, stop for lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant. Your tour then ends with a drop-off back at your Rome hotel.

    We were slightly nervous about how our 12 and 15 year old boys would enjoy this day out - the 7.30am start and long drive had the potential to be a disaster. I needn't have worried. The drive down to Pompeii was very comfortable and Max our driver made good time to arrive in
