Discover the most important archaeological site - Pompeii


Such is the fame of Pompeii, certainly the most important classical archaeological site in Europe, it scarcely needs an introduction.
The life of the ancient city of Pompeii and of its inhabitants ended abruptly in 79 AD, when, following the eruption of Vesuvius, it was covered under about six meters of ash and lapilli.
The excavations of the city, which began in 1748 and still in progress, have brought to light this important archaeological site which, in 1997, became one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Discovering it like a local will be a unique and exciting experience. We'll stroll through the cobbled streets built two thousand years ago, see the shops, temples, theatres, luxurious villas of the patricians and rich merchants that made their fortune in the prosperous city, leaving incredible evidence of civilization, architecture and art.
Stops: Stabian Baths, the Forum, the area of theaters, the House of the Faun, the House of the Tragic Poet and the brothel.
