When Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD it left a flourishing city in ruin, but it also captured a day in the life of a Pompeian forever fossilized – turning what once was tragic into modern day magic. These ominous ruins, immortalized in pumice and ash, have quite literally allowed history to be frozen in time. Like no other experience on Earth, you’ll enjoy a fully-guided 2-hour tour of an absolutely awe-inspiring archeological area. Walk among the stone-slabbed streets where Pompeian villagers and aristocrats alike once went about their daily activities.
Follow your local guide as they recreate the hustle and bustle of this once-busy port town, explaining what each building was used for, where families ate their meals, did laundry and socialized – and where sailors went when they docked. They’ll recreate for you the final days of Pompeii as you examine the harrowing death casts scattered around these ruins at the foot of Mt. Vesuvius.
Explore their homes, including domuses (residences of the ancient elite), and the brightly painted frescoes and marvelous mosaics. Be inspired by your guide as they bring these relics back to life with details only locals would know.
Once you’ve seen it all, we’ll give you a short break for souvenir shopping or coffee before heading to the restaurant for your delicious pizza lunch.
