Visiting Pompeii is an unforgettable experience. The town was destroyed by the eruption of the Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79, it was covered by many tons of pumice and volcanic ash that preserved it for centuries. Pompeii is one of the largest archaeological sites in the world, here the clients can immerse completely into the ambience of the ancient Romans.
Vesuvius is the only active volcano in the mainland of Europe, and it has been responsible for some of the continent’s largest volcanic eruptions. The land at the foot of the Vesuvius is rich with natural beauties. The soil on the slopes of the volcano is very fertile due to the abundance of volcanic minerals and favourable Mediterranean climate. There are lots of vineyards and wine factories that produce amazing wines such as the “Lacryma Christi”. The name of this amazing wine comes from an old legend saying that Christ cried when Lucifer fell from heaven, and these tears gave birth to the grapes that grew here.
