However, a few decades ago, some 300 skeletons were discovered by the coastline, buried under layers of mud.As you stroll through the well preserved streets with your guide, pass historical buildings with clay pots and other artifacts still stored inside, as they would have been before Mt Vesuvius flooded the town with lava some 2,000 years ago. Visit the most important sites of the UNESCO-listed Herculaneum Archeological Site, from the gymnasium to the well-preserved murals and mosaics at the public baths, and listen as your guide brings the ancient history of the area to life with interesting facts and tales from millennia ago.After exploring the Herculaneum Archeological Site, your tour concludes back at your Sorrento hotel in the afternoon.

Pompeii,Herculaneum and wine experience on Mt Vesuvius with Fabrizio

ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Pompeii - Archaeological Area., Pompeii, Province of Naples, CampaniaPompeii is simply a miracle: the most incredible gift the Mt Vesuvius could ever give us. It was buried under 20 ft of soft volcanic debris. This left the ground levels basically intact. Most my guests do no expect it to be so big and well preserved. We will check the Forum, the Bath House, the Theatre. But - even more interesting - we will visit their private homes, the streets, the shops. We will learn about daily life in Ancient Rome. We will feel the presence of the ancient pompeians, feel their struggle for life, their virtues and vices, just normal people like all of us! Duration: 3 hoursStop At: Ruins of Herculaneum, Ercolano, Province of Naples, CampaniaHerculaneum suffered the same destiny as Pompeii, but it is located closer to the volcano. Therefore nearly 60 ft. of hard volcanic couch still covers the Ancient Town. That has preserved even remains of carbonized organics, such as doors, windonws, shelves and...a boat! Not-to-miss is the walk down the Marina, where we will suddenly have the terrific vision of many skeletons found there.Duration: 2 hoursStop At: Vesuvius National Park, Ottaviano, Province of Naples, CampaniaIn bewteen the two walking tours we are going to take a short ride on the slopes of Mt Vesuvius.
