In the boisterous and colorful frame of the Bay of Naples a delightful journey to discover the true heart of southern Italy. We travel through its volcanic past that has shaped the history, culture as well as the economy of the region in the past and present.
Inhabited since the X century B.C., Naples appears at all time as a place of myth, extolled for the beauty of its bay, the mildness of the climate and the violence of the natural scenery.
The second half of the tour lets us discover one of Italy's most beautiful islands, Ischia. From our base in a wonderful hotel in a gorgeous setting, we explore its volcanic landscape, volcanic hot springs, and of course beaches.
Last but not least, the culinary experience during our tour in the heart of Italy can hardly be matched and will certainly likely stand out as a highlight; one you will remember for a long time. You might get addicted to such delightful Mediterranean traditions... Fresh sea food and tasty local vegetables form the basis of its world-renowned, delicious cuisine.

Encadrement

Tom will normally be your tour guide on the Volcanoes of Italy - The Grand Tour.
Dr. Tom Pfeiffer (1970) is a German volcanologist with a PhD degree in geology about the volcanic history of Santorini volcano from the University of Aarhus in Denmark.
For more than 20 years, Tom has been working on volcanic systems (Hawai'i and Vesuvius volcano observatories), observing volcanic eruptions around the world and organizing guided tours to active volcanoes in Europe (Santorini, Etna, Stromboli,...), Kilauea on Hawaii as well as in Africa and Indonesia. During his travels, he found his strongest passion in photography (link to his book) and the sharing of his knowledge and new travel adventures with people outside the scientific community. He first started a tour company in 2004 and is still guiding most VolcanoAdventures tours in Greece and Italy as well as the pilot expeditions and special eruption tours.

His other professional activities include a large number of articles about volcanoes published in newspapers and magazines such as National Geographic, Scientific American and others. Tom also participated in documentary film productions about Santorini (“The myth of the lost city of Atlantis”, "Mystery Hunters", both on Discovery Channel) and Stromboli (“Quarks and co: Vulkane” on the German television channel WDR), as well as the ongoing documentary series about active volcanoes "Volcanic Odysseys" by Canadian filmmaker Michael Dalton (Love Nature & Smithsonian Channel).

Besides his German mother tongue, Tom speaks English, Danish and Italian fluently and can also communicate in Greek, French and some Spanish. He lived for 7 years in Denmark, spent about 2 years in Italy and worked one year on Santorini, Greece, before moving to Athens in 2004.
