Itinerary

  • Meet the tour at the scheduled time at the designated meeting point for the Pompeii walking tour with an archaeological guide. A name that has been universally accepted as one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world, Pompeii was once a thriving ancient Roman city which was destroyed by the eruption of the fierce Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD. Explore the excavation site which was buried under volcanic debris for over 1600 years. Pompeii was once a bustling city with a huge theatre for gladiatorial fights, temples of worship, luxurious Roman villas decorated with brightly painted frescoes and marvelous mosaics and highly mechanised waterway systems. Explore the shops, temples, public baths and houses that composed the thriving city and enjoy fascinating stories of ancient life and how it was decimated by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. See the Roman bakery, the Temple of Apollo, the Roman Forum, an ancient supermarket and an old cemetery. See the daunting plastic death casts of people who were caught in the eruption. Your guide will show you the Forum, Thermal Baths and Lupanare, the most famous brothel in Pompeii. The civilization of Pompeii is one of the most significant proofs of the Roman civilization and provides outstanding information on the art, customs, trades and everyday life of the past. The tour ends at the starting point after which you are free to continue sightseeing on your own.
