Details
Explore the ruins of Pompeii on a 2-hour tour of the Greco-Roman city. Discover the city covered for 1,700 years by layers of ash and pumice from the devastating eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. Skip the line, and meet your guide, who will describe a flourishing civilization, brought to life by the excavations of the 1800s and 1900s. Follow in the footsteps of the Romans, and see how they lived, loved, worked and played. Among the highlights of the site are the Porta Marina (Sea Gate), one of the city’s original entrances, as well as the Forum, Main Square, and surrounding temples, porticoes and law courts. 20,000 people lived in the provincial town, of which 2,000 perished. Twenty feet of volcanic ash and pumice stone covered the city, freezing everyday artifacts for later prosperity. Among the most poignant sights are the plaster cast models taken from Pompeii citizens, and their pets.
