A walk in Pompeii is an experience unlike any other; the city still feels as lively as ever. Learn about the history of the town and how the Romans lived with a tour of all the most important public buildings and private houses.

Herculaneum is much smaller but better preserved than Pompeii. While Pompeii was covered in 4 to 5 meters of ash, an avalanche of mud 20 meters thick buried Herculaneum. Second storeys, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics are still fully visible. The city comes back to life with your guide’s explanations.

This tour consists of a pleasant walk around the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, buried by the ashes of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 a. D.

A walk in Pompeii is a very intense experience; clients will have the feeling of wandering in a town that is still alive.

The ruins are included in the list of “UNESCO World Heritage Patrimony”.

This tour gives a vivid impression of the opulent lifestyle enjoyed by the wealthier citizens of the Roman Empire. It is worth to visit it to get an idea of how the Romans lived in the imperial period.

    "An absolutely extraordinary day"
    If you like history to come alive then this tour will not disappoint. I would like to thank Sergio hugely for being a fantastic tour guide who took us through the ancient cities and gave us a wonderful insight into social life in Pompeii and Herculaneum. No stone was left unturned as he showed us all aspects of both sites. Just to warn you that there is a lot of walking involved and in both places there are steeply inclining roads so you need to come prepared for an active day. The tour finishes in Herculaneum where you can catch a bus from near the train station to the top of Mount Vesuvius and walk around the crater. A must-see spectacle if you are in the area. A superb experience all-round. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
