2 hour walking tour with full immersion in Pompeii's daily life.
During our 2 hour tour, you will experience and learn the unique story of Pompeii, the ancient city buried and preserved under layers of ash as a result of the eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD.
We will visit the most important areas of Pompeii and I will answer important questions such as: Why did the Romans build the city next to a fire spitting volcano? How many victims were found and where can we see them? What was the Roman diet and how do we know this? Where did all the ash go after Pompeii was excavated?
As many of you have read and have some knowledge of Pompeii, my tour will help add that extra dimension and help you feel what it was like to have lived in this city in 79AD. Let me help you to make your Pompeii experience unforgettable and stress free!
* I will help you purchase tickets and save time (you will skip the line with me as your guide).
** I'm children friendly and I particularly enjoy making this tour exciting for kids.
