Day trips & Excursions


Pompeii was an ancient Roman town near the city of Naples, in the Campania region of Italy. Modern-day Pompeii may feel like a nondescript satellite of Naples, but it's here that you'll find Europe's most compelling archaeological site: the ruins of Pompeii. Sprawling and haunting, the site is a stark reminder of the malign forces that lie deep inside Vesuvius. In 79 AD, hot volcanic ash and pumice raced down the slopes of Mount Vesuvius and smothered Pompeii to death. Since excavations started in the 18th century, the city has yielded a bounty of cultural treasures and insight into the life of the ancient world. The region around Mount Vesuvius and the Bay of Naples attract now travelers who want to soak up the sun and the scenery.


With its lyrical landscapes, world-class art, and delicious cuisine, the Tuscany region is perfectly in symbiosis with the land. There are many places to visit in Tuscany; the difficulty is really where to start. Located in central Italy and stretches from the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea, its landscape, artistic heritage and stand-out cities make Tuscany an unquestioned protagonist of international tourism. Medieval villages, historical towns, castles, country churches and beautiful abbeys are scattered all over the region. Tuscany is well known for its landscapes, traditions, artistic legacy, and its influence on high culture, often considered as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance.

Hadrian's Villa

The Italian town of Tivoli, set just 30 kilometers east of Rome, is home to beautiful residences, splendid villas, and the famous UNESCO World Heritage Hadrian's Villa. Visitors will enjoy stunning garden walks with ancient architectural styles, not to mention a quiet, elegant escape from the city and some of the best natural water in Italy. The ruins of Hadrian's Villa are magnificent and entirely unique with anything you will see in Rome. Built between 118 and 138 AD, the villa was one of the largest in the Roman world, encompassing more than 120 hectares. The Villa is a monumental living complex that even today continues to display the lavishness and enormous power of Ancient Rome.
