THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR NEEDS AND REQUESTS.

This tour consists in a marvelous walk around of the ancients roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, buried from the ashes of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 a. D. In 4 hours I'll be able to show you most of the highlights!

A walk in Pompeii is a very intense experience; you'll have the feeling of wandering in a still alive town. I will explain you the history of the town and how the romans lived showing you all the most important public buildings and private houses.

Herculaneum is much smaller but better preserved. While Pompeii had been covered in four/five meters of ashes, an avalanche of muds 20 meters thick had buried Herculaneum.
It is still possible seeing second stories, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics. With my explanation I'll make the city come to life.

A Recent Review of this tour

Paolo was an excellent, knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. We learned so much from him. I would heartily recommend him. We visited both Pompeii and Herculaneum with Paolo, which is a lot to cover, but I felt we got a real insight into the importance of the two sites and their significant differences, during the time available.
