Roman lifeWhen the volcano erupted it buried the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, engulfing the 2000 inhabitants and their homes, freezing them in time forever. Discovered in 1748, the perfectly preserved remains show a slice of Roman life like nowhere else on earth. Use a couple of days at your Bed and Breakfast Pompeii to explore the most excavated archaeological site in the world.
View from the VolcanoTo get the adrenaline pumping, take a hike to the top of the world's most dangerous volcano. It's not a question of if the volcano will erupt, but when. Mount Vesuvius is the only active volcano on mainland Europe, it has an eruption cycle of 20 yrs but it hasn't exploded since 1944. With today's technology, we would get plenty of warning so climbing Vesuvius is perfectly safe if you're in reasonable physical condition. Wear comfortable shoes, no flip flops, and climb to the top to experience the breathtaking views from the summit.
Wine tastingWhile you are staying at a Bed and Breakfast Pompeii you are sure to be sampling a few different local wines but none so special as the Lacrima Christi wine. Grown on the fertile banks of Vesuvius herself. The wine can be sampled in the bar at the base of the mountain. Why not ask your hosts at your Bed and Breakfast Pompeii for suggestions on local wine tours including the vineyards at Vesuvius for a truly volcanic experience.
