Capri and Herculaneum Tour - Excursions from Port
With this shore excursion we will take you to the discovery of "the island of the mermaids", as identified Capri in Greek mythology. Famous for its beauty, its mild and temperate climate, for its landscape and its millenary tradition, Capri has always been associated with glamorous and elite tourism.
A pearl in the middle of the sea, with cliffs carved by caves and coves and surrounded by rocks with fantastic shapes. The island is famous, among other things, for the variety of its decorations and for the richness of its buildings that create extraordinary scenarios.
To visit are the center of the island with its "piazzetta" where you can enjoy a good coffee or a drink and the shopping street; via Krupp and the Gardens of Augustus, an essential stop from which to admire the famous Faraglioni, symbol of the island. And again the Blue Grotto, whose name derives from the magnificent color of the seabed that is reflected throughout the cave, and the splendid Villa San Michele in the municipality of Anacapri, a small center of white houses, surrounded by olive trees and vineyards.
Herculaneum is a very famous archaeological site located about 10 km from Naples on the eastern side of Vesuvius and close to the sea. In 62 AD a strong earthquake destroyed many factories and seventeen years later (79 AD) the terrible eruption of Vesuvius completely buried the city. The excavations offer visitors the beauty of private houses and villas that still retain charred furniture, organic finds and multiple wooden elements belonging to the structural and architectural parts of the buildings.
