It's only here and now that you will be able to get true understanding of the sophistication and richness of the Roman civilization.
This is the most easy to handle tour because it gives you most of the impressions in just 2 hours. So if you still have some time left before you leave the area of Naples and you haven’t visited Pompeii yet, this is your best choice.
During this tour you will be guided through the maze of Pompeii streets, which until 20 centuries ago were covered with a thick layer of ash and pumice. Once a thriving city, Pompeii was destroyed overnight by a huge eruption that hit the area with scorching heat, ashes and devastating earthquake.
We’ll have to cut long story short and therefore see in detail only the western part of the town. For our convenience, that is the part with most of the important public buildings, luxurious urban villas and shops.
We’ll see the following locations on our way: the Marina Gate, the Basilica (court house), the Forum (main square), the Forum baths, the Lupanar (brothel), the bakery, the house of Faun, the Termopolium Capuano, the house of Menander as well as the famous plaster casts.
Why book this tour?
Pompeii is a must-see place if you visit Italy. It’s only here and now that you will be able to get true understanding of the sophistication and richness of the Roman civilization. You probably think Pompeii consists of several ruins and a lot of columns, but in fact it’s a real medium-sized town almost all of which has been uncovered by archaeologists. To cite the decision of UNESCO Commitee, impressive remains of Pompeii, buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79, “provide a complete and vivid picture of society and daily life at a specific moment in the past that is without parallel anywhere in the world“.
