The ancient city of Pompeii is probably the most important archaeological site in the world. It was an agricultural and commercial center where about 12, 000 people lived. The eruption of Vesuvius by A. D. 79 the ditrusse and covered it under about 8 meters of pumice, lapilli and ash. The tour lasts about 2 hours and will be a journey through history where you will see houses, theaters, baths, shops, brothels, casts of the victims, in an incredible state of conservation. It is a unique emotion to visit a Roman city that integrates in all its architectural aspects. During the tour I will talk about the public and private life of the ancient Romans.
How many years lived on average and how tall were they? How long did they work in one day? Who were the richest? Where did free time pass? Where did the slaves come from? Questions to which I will be happy to give you many answers.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful day with Paolo. I was touring Pompeii with during a heat wave with my very slow moving, 75 year old mother, my sister and my 13 year old nephew. Paolo was truly excellent. His English was terrific. He catered to the needs to my mother while somehow keeping the interest of my nephew. He was passionate and well-informed. He answered questions with accuracy and the enthusiasm of a great teacher. I highly recommend booking with Paolo.
