During this tour you’ll see all main attractions of Pompeii in a well-planned order: political, public and religious buildings, recreational places like baths, amphitheater, theaters, and even brothels. You’ll also see hidden treasures which tourists don’t notice in rush: House of the Faun with a huge Alexander mosaic inside, House of the Ship Europa, plaster casts and much more. Due to a major eruption – unfortunately for Romans and luckily for us – this city was buried under a thick layer of ash and pumice. You’ll probably get lost in this enormous city if left by yourself. Only such detailed tour can give you enough impressions and knowledge about the world’s biggest open-air museum from the past.

Why book this tour?

If we’d asked ancient Romans they would definitely agree: the only way to fully understand Roman ways and lifestyle is to spend entire day in this unique open-air museum. Once you’ve been on such tour, you’ll be an expert on Roman daily life in a way no one can be. Most tourists come and see only glimpses of Roman life, but you’ll be able to follow a typical day of a middle-class Roman citizen step by step.

You’ll start in the morning hours when Romans already finished their morning procedures and left homes to perform public activity. We’ll follow in their footsteps and first immerse in bustling market life full of city spirit, stories and rumours. We’ll see exactly what they saw on their path: the Forum, paved streets, public temples and fountains. They’ll even invite us into the cool baths where we’ll take rest from the hot sun.

During that very special day, the Romans, happy to share their lifestyle, will give us personal honour by taking us to their homes. Then we’ll pass by local pubs and fastfood restaurants (thermopolia) where ready-to-eat food was sold at cheap prices. We’ll take a quick lunch break too, to make sure we have enough energy for “evening” life. In fact, life of a Roman consists of all kinds of activities, so you will also see notorious Roman brothels (Lupanar) and Amphitheatre for cruel gladiator fights, which were most visited places for everyday pleasures. More educated Romans went to music and tragedy theaters, which we’ll also see, along with the gladiator school.

Visiting Pompeii for a full day is an unforgettable real-time experience. And remember: When in Pompeii, do what Romans do!
