Before we changed our name to Askostours we were known as Pompeiin. The new name reflects the widening of our scope to the whole of Southern and Central Italy. But Pompeii will remain one of the main points of our interest. Why? Pompeii is a must-see place if you visit Italy. 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. It’s the world’s only one unique open-sky museum which looks anything but a man-made museum. Pompeii looks like a real city, which it is in spite of the destruction it suffered in AD 79.
It’s only here and now that you will be able to get true understanding of the sophistication and richness of the Roman civilization. To cite the decision of UNESCO Commitee, impressive remains of Pompeii, buried by the eruption of Vesuvius, “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“.
Pompeii is a separate universe full of wonders and secrets, so you’ll probably need a professional to guide you through its miracles. We have been studying it for many years and that’s one of our favourite locations. Contact us and we’ll offer you best-class services of guidance in the ancient city of Pompeii.
