An "appetizer" of Roman civilization

We will go to discover the real life of about two thousand years ago during Roman times!

Following the tracks of shops, chariots, and sacred areas, we can come to an understanding of daily life in the shade of the Mount Vesuvius.

Through the ruins of theatres, thermal baths and administrative buildings we will revive the history of one of the most important archaeological sites of the world!



In this 2 hours tour of Pompeii you can see in detail the most important public buildings: the area of the Theaters, a Sacred area, the public Thermal baths, the Forum (main square) and all its surroundings.

You can also have an introduction of Roman daily life visiting different shops and houses.

At the end I'll explain and show you the incredible technique to obtain the plaster casts of the victims of the eruption.

A Recent Review of this tour

Roberto was very kind to fit us in for a basic tour on very short notice. He is an archeologist so his insight into this historical archeological site is invalueable. It was a 2h tour and in Roberto's words "an appetizer". You can't comprehend how big this place really is until you see it. Roberto was extremely knowledgeable and provided us with tons of insight into the main attractions. He took the time to answer all of the many questions we had. Very calm, very good English skills. Grazie!
