Tour Description

Roman antiquity to explore!

Reserve your place for a fascinating 3-hour guided walking tour of Pompeii. The world-renowned city beneath the lava and ash of Mt. Vesuvius is a prime example of Roman life in the 1st Century.

The ancient ruins of Pompeii are a must-see for any traveler to Rome. A rich maritime history characterizes this middle-class community bursting with merchants, bars, restaurants, brothels and a professional city center.

Go back in time with us and feel the city throb with life. First stop, the Theatre. Imagine elaborate costumed plays and events. Then we’ll visit the artfully appointed Thermal Baths, masterpieces of classical architecture. From dressing rooms to athletic fields, they were a major experience in the life of the people of Pompeii.

Picture street vendors of every persuasion calling out to passersby. Visit wine cellars, restaurants and bars, and learn of rare recipes. Compare costs of items that were once daily fare. From clothing to slaves, the markets had it all. Walking on we’ll note the Ampitheatre, domain of gladiators, and the infamous red light district . . .

Rounding out our informative tour is a stop in the Forum. Here, the city’s religious and political leaders interacted and set policy for an ancient people. Temples and public buildings are a testament to their classical history. Travellers from afar attended grand ceremonies and watched noble processions in streets thronged with Pompeii’s citizenry.

Getting to Pompeii is easy. Located several kilometers south of Naples and 240 km south of Rome, it can be reached by train (Pompeii Scavi Station). Our professional partners are available to meet you at your hotel, port or the airport.
