What to Expect
Pompeii is Italy's most important open-air museum. It represents a perfectly preserved snapshot of the lives of Ancient Romans when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 A.D., covering the city in ash. Your guided tour of Pompei will provide depth and insight into this ancient treasure trove of Roman life.

Pompeii was catastrophically buried in 79 A.D. when Mount Vesuvius erupted. The ancient city was rediscovered in 1748, and offers an amazing window into the ancient past. This guided tour will take you past burial grounds, gardens, private homes, theaters, and shops, all preserved by layers of volcanic ash.

Abbondanza Street runs through the ancient town as well through 2,000 years of history. You will see examples of everyday Roman life, including a Thermopolium, an ancient Roman snack bar. The remains of Pompeii also include a fullonica, an ancient laundry, and a pistrinum, an old bakery. You'll also see the central square on the way to the forum, the hub of the social life of the city.

In Pompeii you will experience the daily life of the Ancient Romans, their homes, their temples, their shops and even a Roman brothel. This tour is a unique adventure into the history of the ancient Italian city.
