Pompeii is one of the most significant proofs of Roman life and, like an open book, provides information on the art, customs and everyday life of the past. The city has re-emerged as it would have been when it was buried  by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Here  you will learn how was life in Roman Times, walking through Pompeii’s main streets just as the ancient Romans did, breathing the roman atmosphere and visiting the thermal baths, the domus, the amphitheatre, the Gladiators’ Gym, the mills, the Lupanare, famous for its erotic frescoes and much more... At the end of the Pompeii tour if you like you can have time for a relaxing lunch! Located in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, Herculaneum  was destroyed, together with Pompeii, by the volcano eruption that buried it. Unlike Pompeii, the deep pyroclastic material which covered it preserved wooden and other organic-based objects such as roofs, beds, doors, food and even some 300 skeletons. Our expert and local  guide will make the sites come to life, offering you the opportunity to imagine the private lives of Ancient Romans.
