TOUR DESCRIPTION

Have you ever dreamed of traveling back in time? Take our Pompeii tour and live like an ancient Roman for one day.

Duration: about 2 hours + transportation

Pompeii is one of the most famous and important archaeological sites in the world. Once a prosperous town, the city was terribly hit by the eruption of the Vesuvius in the year 79 AD. Nobody knew that the Vesuvius was a volcano, therefore nobody could expect this mountain to suddenly blow up and destroy almost everything for an eight miles radius.

The city was buried by the volcanic ashes, and most of the Pompeiians died in horrible ways, unable to find shelter anywhere. The ashes quickly buried all the streets, the houses, the temples, the theaters; the city disappeared and soon its exact location was forgotten. Only a long time later, in 1748, the King of Naples Charles the 3rd decided to start the excavations that brought Pompeii back to life.

The archaeologists who dug in Pompeii immediately realized that this site was unique: the ashes had perfectly preserved the city, almost if like it had been frozen until its discovery. Not only the buildings were still standing: the discoverers could also admire the wall paintings, the frescoes, the marble cornices, the stuccoes, and the statues. Digging Pompeii was not like excavating ruins: the city was so well preserved that it was like unveiling the ancient world, travel back in time and see the life of the ancient Romans.

During our Pompeii tour, you’ll have the chance to explore this unique site with a professional, local guide. You’ll walk on roads that were built about 2000 years ago, enter ancient houses and enjoy their amazing frescoes. You will explore the piazzas, the temples, and the theaters frequented by the ancient Pompeiians. You will see history come back to life.

What did the ancient Romans eat, and where? Did they eat pasta and pizza like modern Italians? What gods did they pray, and how? Find out with our Pompeii tour! Ask these questions to your private guide, and have the time of your life exploring this unforgettable archaeological site.
