Day 1 Naples

Welcome to Italy! Arrive in the beautiful city of Naples and settle in to comfortable accommodation. Perhaps take a stroll by the waterfront, explore the Piazza del Plebiscito or head out for a family meal at a close-by trattoria for a first taste of delicious Neapolitan cuisine. Take a train the next morning to the base of Mt Vesuvius and climb the most famous volcano on earth - don't worry, it's dormant! Then, tour the fascinating preserved city of Herculaneum to learn how people lived here around 2,000 years ago.
