Explore the lost city of Pompeii

contiki-ctp-icon-map-pin
Pompeii, Italy | Day 14

A guided walking tour around this UNESCO World Heritage Site will have you immersed into the culture of ancient Rome. Pompeii is of course best known for Mt. Vesuvius, and the volcanic eruption which buried the ancient Roman city in volcanic ash, leaving it preserved as a unique snapshot of Roman society, in which organic remains turned into morbidly fascinating natural moulds. Today, it’s the most remarkable organic museum in the world.

Farmhouse dinner with the locals

Salzburg, Austria | Day 18

Surrounded by Salzburg’s rolling hills, this delicious regional dinner includes meat from the farm next door and local schnapps.
