Capri & Herculaneum: A Tale of Glamour and Antiquity – Premier Shore Excursions from Port
Embark on a breathtaking journey that intertwines the glamour of Capri, the “Island of Mermaids,” with the ancient allure of Herculaneum. This isn’t your average excursion; it’s a meticulously crafted experience that delves deep into the luxurious and the historical.
Capri—synonymous with elite tourism—awaits with its majestic cliffs, surreal caves, and sculpted rock formations. Stroll along the iconic Via Krupp, sip an aromatic coffee at the pulsating “Piazzetta,” and savor sweeping views of the famous Faraglioni from the Gardens of Augustus. Bask in the azure glow of the Blue Grotto and find serenity in the peaceful white houses of Anacapri, enveloped by lush olive groves and vineyards.
But the tour transcends mere beauty, leading you to the remnants of Herculaneum. Located just a stone’s throw from Naples, this archaeological marvel provides a vivid glimpse into a long-gone world. Preserved by the catastrophic Vesuvius eruption in 79 AD, Herculaneum’s private homes, intricate wooden elements, and even charred furniture survive today, offering an unparalleled view of ancient life.
