Pompeii and vinery
“The best way to experience one of the oldest wine countries in the world is to visit in person, and sample the simple yet bold wines...straightforward and perfect to pair with any meal.”
One of the most important wine centres of the Ancient Roman world was the city of Pompeii. The area was home to a vast expanse of vineyards, serving as an important trading city with Roman provinces abroad and the principal source of wine for the city of Rome.
You’ll re-live ancient history with your private guided tour of the frozen–in –time city of Pompeii, buried under pumice and ash when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 A.D. Pompeii is one of the most significant archaeological sites in the world as the ruins provide a comprehensive view of the life and culture of the ancient Roman city. You will see the forum, amphitheatre, and some of the most beautiful mosaics, baths, temples and villas of this once thriving city, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
After the visit, you’ll be driven to the winery where, walking through the vineyards, you’ll learn about the grape varieties and cultivation methods used on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. You'll love the views over the countryside from there!
Then, sitting under a beautiful pergola, on a terrace overlooking the Mediterranean, you’ll sample unique Lacryma Christi wines, paired with local products from the slopes of Mount Vesuvius for the perfect "Italian style" tasting.
