Join this amazing tour to live a full immersion experience in the Ancient Roman history and culture, with a deep overview on the mos (habits and decorum) of the time. You will visit archaeological site of Pompeii first - where your guide will lead you along the streets of the city – and will then move to the MANN to complete your tour next to the historical centre of Naples.
It was the 79AC when the Volcano Vesuvius eruption caused the burial and destruction of the Roman city settled on its slopes – Pompeii. The urban settlement was completely covered by layers of ashes and lava, and for centuries the memory of this ancient culture was remembered in the Plinius the Young’s letters to his friends. He himself indeed, managed to survive, and narrates to the posterity the dread of the events, and his sorrow for the friends left behind.Your guide will lead you into the streets of the Ancient city, showing you the gymnasium, the theatres, the old bakeries and the ancestor of what today would be considered a fast food. You will then see the Isis temple, the house of Menander and the magnificent baths. On your way you will even find the lupanariae, the red-light district, and will end your tour in the Forum – the central square, where politicians used to make their speeches, temples where built, and merchants sold their products.After a break for lunch, you will arrange a meeting point with your guide (usually the front stairs of the Museum) to continue the tour.
