When in Rome do not miss Pompeii and Herculaneum too! - Skip-the-line & transportation included


If you're staying in Rome, take a chance to visit Pompeii and Herculaneum too! I will be your personal archaeologist and guide! Visiting those cities is a life experience to be enjoyed through a detailed tour.

Of all the Ancient Rome tours, a visit to Pompeii and Herculaneum is a must if you stay in Italy.
Nowhere else shall you see History in such conditions.
The stories behind these famous places lay bare as you wander around the streets entering houses and brothels. You will see the last moments in the lives of the people of Pompeii, forever captured by the erupting volcano.

Herculaneum is much smaller, but even better preserved than Pompeii. While the latter had been covered in four to five meters of ashes, a 20 meters thick avalanche of muds had buried Herculaneum. It is still possible to see two-storey houses, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and beautiful mosaics. . .
