Why a day tour at Pompeii?

The Sun path marked the daily activities of the inhabitants in ancient Pompeii.
The shops opened at down and the Forum got filled with merchants and sellers. People went to the Baths, also opened to slaves and went to numerous pubs to get a warm meal or a game of dice.
The amphitheater represented the main attraction in town. Its performances were popular but they were also the occasion for their sponsors to improve their cursus honoris (political carrier).
The brothels were also very popular as the places destined to sexual pleasure.
The cosmopolitan atmosphere and a mixing of different religions were created by the presence of a very busy port.

Come to revive those atmospheres with an unforgettable tour!

Itinerary

The most famous eruption of the Mount Vesuvius took place in the year 79 A. D. , when the volcano buried the ancient Roman city of Pompeii under a thick carpet of volcanic ash. With this tour we'll see the entire city in its last moment, frozen in time.

Highlights:
the Amphitheater, the main street of the city called "via dell'Abbondanza" with its several shops and houses, the Thermal Baths, the Forum, the Basilica (court house), the Theatres, the Lupanar (brothel), the bakeries, the Termopolium Capuano, the house of Tragic Poet, the plaster casts, the Temples of Apollo and Venus, the Marina Gate and much more.

Paolo is an excellent guide; he has evident passion for and tremendous knowledge of his subject and an ability to explain it lucidly. We selected him for a six hour tour of Pompeii. It was fascinating from beginning to end.
