A taste of Roman life in ancient Roman cities (with private transportation) - Skip-the-line included!


Let's visit Pompeii and Herculaneum in one day with the best highlights, with a full immersion in Roman life and towns!

Private transportation is included - My driver will pick you up at your accommodation or cruise port

This tour consists of a marvellous walk around the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, buried in the ashes of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 AD. Yes, I'll be able to show you most of the highlights of both towns!

A walk in Pompeii is a very intense experience; you'll have the feeling to be in a town that is still alive. I will tell you about its history and how the Romans used to live, showing you all the most important public buildings and private houses.

Herculaneum is much smaller, but even better preserved then Pompeii.
While Pompeii had been covered in four to five meters of ashes, an avalanche of muds 20 meters thick had buried Herculaneum: two-storey houses, carbonized wooden objects, paintings and mosaics are still preserved.
