Travel arrangements to Naples are not included in the tour package, in order to give everybody the best chance to plan his/her trip according his preferences. Naples is easily reached by plane or train (e.g. from Rome airport or other cities). Connecting flights to Naples from other Italian cities can be easily booked for you at low additional cost.
In Naples, our hotel (with a cozy roof terrace) is in the lively heart of the old city, giving the opportunity to immerge immediately into this unique city, that lives not only with Vesuvius, but has its own volcano in its soul.
It was a pleasant experience to find a company like Volcano Discovery, which provides a service so different, fun and interesting even in places where everything seemed invented on tourism..." (Miguel A. V. & Maria del Carmen P., Spain)
