When in Rome visit Pompeii and Herculaneum! - skip the line included
THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR NEEDS AND REQUESTS.
Of all the ancient Rome tours, a visit to Pompeii and Herculaneum is a must while staying in Italy. Nowhere else will you see history so well preserved. The story behind this famous place is laid bare as you wander around the streets between former houses and brothels. You will see the last moments in the lives of the people of Pompeii that were captured by the erupting volcano.
Herculaneum is much smaller but better preserved. While Pompeii had been covered in four/five meters of ashes, an avalanche of muds 20 meters thick had buried Herculaneum.
It is still possible seeing second stories, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics. With my explanation I'll make the city come to life.
Visiting Pompeii and Herculaneum is a day life experience to be enjoyed trough a detailed tour.
I suggest leaving Rome at 7 am or maximum 7. 30 am.

We had a great time. Paolo has an encyclopedic knowledge of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Beyond that, he is able to paint a picture of daily life in the ancient world. The all-day tour went by in no time. I would highly recommend him.
