Practical info
Embark on a captivating journey through time as you explore the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, frozen in time by the devastating volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. In an intimate setting, limited to just 20 participants, our expert guide will lead you on an immersive English-language tour. As you wander through the excavated streets of Pompeii, you'll uncover the fascinating history of a city and its people, remarkably preserved under a thick layer of volcanic ash and pumice. Take a break to grab a bite to eat or browse the souvenir shops outside the ruins. Next, hop on the Circumesuviana train to Ercolano, a short 20-minute ride, and delve into the lesser-known but equally captivating ruins of Herculaneum. This smaller, yet remarkably well-preserved city, was buried under a staggering 20-meter thick layer of mud, which has helped to safeguard its treasures. Marvel at the remarkably preserved second floors, carbonized wooden objects, vibrant paintings, and intricate mosaics, which paint a vivid picture of the luxurious lives of ancient Rome's elite.
