The gem of Roman Archeology in Naples!
The buried buildings of Pompeii were designed to last only a few decades, but here they are!
Still standing after nearly 2000 years!
The excavations at Pompeii offer a great insight on the daily life in the Roman society in all its aspects: let me guide you through the ancient streets, theatres, public buildings, private, luxurious homes, thermal baths, shops and many other surprises that this wonderful site has to offer!

**The tour is available as a Private Shore Excursion from the Port of Naples, Sorrento or Salerno. The price indicated is from Naples port. For the prices from Sorrento or Salerno port, please, ask for a customized tour.
Once in town, you'll walk on the original roads made of volcanic rocks and you'll notice big blocks emerging from the road: they are stepping stones used by pedestrians to avoid getting wet when it rained.
You'll see several shops on the streets with large vases built in a masonry counter: those are the Roman taverns, where very many ancient Pompeians would stop for lunch.
You will see a bakery and by one of the main streets, you will find a thermal bath, where both men and women went for daily hygiene. From there we'll go to the city centre, called Forum, that hosts all the public buildings: temples, the market, offices. In the Forum you will also see examples of the famous human casts. Pompeii had three places for public performances: an outdoor theatre, an indoor theatre and a big amphitheatre for gladiators or beast fights and we'll visit at least one of those places.
After the tour, you could stop for a few minutes for a refreshment or souvenirs shops
