Pompeii & Naples

Code: JNAP009

 

When your ship docks in Naples port, you will have a limited amount of time to explore the famous area of Naples, rich in history and archeological sites. What better way to utilize your time than with a private driver/guide who will show you the area through the eyes of a local. 

 

One of Joe Banana’s English speaking drivers will meet you outside of the cruise ship terminal at Naples port. He will be holding a sign with your name on it and be ready to escort you to your luxury vehicle. 

 

While driving past the city of Naples on the way to Pompeii, your driver will give you information about this famous city. You will pass by the base of Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano responsible for one of the most well known historical events in this region, and shortly thereafter, arrive at the ancient ruins of Pompeii. Here you will be greeted by your professional, private licensed guide who will be with you all day. You will have about 2.5 hours to explore the ruins of Pompeii with your private guide. 

 

Your time in Naples will continue with time for lunch as your driver will be happy to suggest a location where you can savor the authentic taste of a Napoletano pizza or another culinary experience of your preference. 

 

Following lunch, you will be taken on a driving tour of the city of Naples, during which time your driver and licensed guide will share a wealth of information about this famous city from inside the vehicle.

 

We will then stop at Naples National Archaeological Museum. Located in Piazza Museo, it is the most important Italian archaeological museum which contains artifacts from the areas of Herculaneum, Pompeii and Stabiae. Also considered one of the most important museums in the world, it is home to a large collection of high quality Roman artifacts from the Greek, Roman and Renaissance periods. Collections include antiquities of marbles, bronzes, mosaics, as well as the Egyptian collection and the Secret Cabinet. Your guide will take you around this beautiful museum. 

 

The 2 hours spent here will undoubtedly leave you with an even greater appreciation for the ancient ways of life in this area. 

 

After this, you will return to the cruise ship in the port of Naples.
