5 Day: Pompeii and Vesuvius
Today in Pompeii we get a great testimony of the way of life in the ancient world. The once prosperous town was 63 ac as well as Naples, Ercolano and Nocera was destroyed by an earthquake. Pompeii was not yet rebuilt, as the eruption of Mount Vesuvius finally buried the city in the year 79 ac under its lava. To get an idea how the Roman city in the Empire looked at, give the ruins of various sizes and the idyllic landscape a first impression of it. In the Antiquarium, there are documents relating the city's history and everyday objects from that time. The cast of people and animals are in the exactly position in which they were surprised by the death, however, are much more impressive. After a visit to this famous archaeological site, we get close to the Vesuvius climb, one of the active volcanoes in Europe. The bus can go up to 1000 m, then by foot. From the crater rim, you have a breathtaking view of the Gulf of Naples. Originally, the Vesuvius had a submarine activity; at that time, only its peak and its slopes appeared out of the sea. Return to the hotel and dinner.

6 Day: Amalfi Coast
This is the most enchanting coast of Europe, between Positano, Ravello and Maiori until Vietri sul Mare. As a result of erosion the sloping steeply to the sea, the Coast has been interrupted in short terraces repeatedly by deep Valley that enclosed small enchanting beaches.
On the narrow coastal road, we made a panorama-stop in Positano, the jewel of the Amalfi coast, where often actors, directors and writers like to meet each other.
We continue towards Amalfi, through colourful spectacle of nature, nestled between the lush greenery of hill slopes and the deep blue of the sea and of the sky. We can admire the harmony between the architectural structures and the perfect landscape.
An example of this is the Arab Norman style and the St. Andreas Cathedral of Amalfi.
After a break, we reach Ravello and visit the beautiful Villa Rufolo, the Moorish cloister, the tower, the famous exotic garden, whose beauty inspired the German composer Wagner for his Parsifal. A second famous Villa in Ravello is the Villa Cimbrone, whose main attraction is the large park and the view of the Amalfi coast.

In Paestum were found a large city in the 18th century under rampant vegetation, which was founded and colonised by the Romans by the Greeks. The three Greek temples are remarkably intact and the thick walls are the only ones who are still from the 5th century BC.
The Cilento area is also known for the excellent mozzarella cheese which is made here. The black water-buffalo graze in this area and provide the milk for this cheese which comes on the delicious Napolitan pizza.
