Summary

New Discoveries and Highlights in the Shadow of Vesuvius

The extraordinary Roman sites in the Bay of Naples have undergone an incredible regeneration in recent years. This beautiful stretch of coast, which was developed in the Roman era by elites and emperors in search of leisure, has witnessed exciting new archaeological activities, as well as an unprecedented number of newly opened sites. While much attention has been given to the wonderful new excavations of Pompeii, much less has been said about the opening of new sections of Herculaneum, the opening of Roman sites in Positano and Boscoreale, and the excavations taking place in Terzigno and Somma Vesuviana. This tour offers a fresh take of Romans in the Bay of Naples, taking into consideration these new discoveries and sites, and offering an up-to-date examination of this prosperous and beautiful part of the ancient world. There has never been a better time to visit the towns in the shadow of Vesuvius with the advantage of it being a less crowded time of year.

Tour highlights:

  • A private visit to the Villa Augustea in Somma Vesuviana which was destroyed in the eruption of AD 472 and is still being excavated
  • Visit the newly opened Museum at Terzigno which houses incredible remains of newly excavated villas
  • Explore the newly opened Roman Villa at Positano, with its wonderful fresçoes
  • Examine the newly opened Regio V in Pompeii
