Departure point is Napoli Capodichino airport.
Take off from Naples and start this amazing tour over Naples, known throughout the world for the intensity and passion of its music which, like the city, mixes cultured and popular, sacred and profane, joyful and melancholy aspects.
Naples is one of the largest and most enchanting cities of art in the Mediterranean. The city dominates the homonymous gulf, which extends from the Sorrento peninsula to the volcanic area of Campi Flegrei and offers a very suggestive view, with the imposing volcano Vesuvius and, in the distance, three magnificent islands – Capri, Ischia and Procida – which they look like little jewels from the sea. In addition to its splendid landscapes, Naples owes its well-deserved fame also to the charm of a historic center that tells 2500 years of history and was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1995.
Pompeii was a Roman city, which has been totally buried by ash, mud and lava flows of Mt. Vesuvius eruption, during 79 AD. This place is a unique set of civil and private buildings, monuments, sculptures, paintings and mosaics of such importance for the history of archeology and for antiquity to be recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Thanks to the overfly, you will explore the vastness of this area, totally brought to light from the excavations of the king Carlo of Borbone, in 1748. These works have been very important to discover old buildings as quarters or rich villas, where most of the frescos are still preserved.
The Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius tour by helicopter is created to have also a view of the volcano which, due to its strenght, destroyed other cities such as Herculaneum, Oplontis and Stabiae.
Nowadays, Mt. Vesuvius is a National Park, for its rich biodiversity. It is a natural artwork: from the helicopter you will see the real top of the volcano and its crater. The Mount Somma has at its right the cone of Vesuvius and they’re separated by a valley, called Valley of the Giant.
Next flight destination is Herculaneum, smaller and less opulent than Pompeii, Herculaneum was considered by the Romans a more residential location, today an open-air museum.
Herculaneum is a town overlooking the Gulf of Naples and it became famous throughout the world when archaeological excavations brought to the surface the ancient splendor of the Roman city that it once was, until the eruption of Vesuvius which submerged it in 79 AD. Together with Pompeii it was included among the World Heritage Sites by UNESCO in 1997.
At the end of the tour, we will fly back to Naples Capodichino airport and from there a private driver will accompany you to your accommodation.
