Walking tour in the ancient city of Pompeii
Pompeii archaeological ruins are famous worldwide for being a unique example of a two thousand years old city frozen in times and the first ever documented natural catastrophe in history.
This city was covered by the ashes of a sudden eruption on the 24th August 79 a. c. and it remained untouched up to the XVIII century when little by little it was brought to light. Monuments as the Forum, the Amphitheatre, the private houses and all the other findings show us not only the physical places where the life took place, but allow also interdisciplinary investigations which satisfy any curiosity about the habits of what was an incredibly modern society, 'till showing us private people's stories.

VALENTINA was a terrific guide for our group of 10 ranging in age from 6 to 72 with teenagers. Everyone was awestruck by the huge expanse that was Pompeii and Valentina showed us so many different things that kept us all engaged for the full 2.5 hours. She constantly adapted to meet the needs of the group, was understanding when our drivers arrived late at the wrong gate, and when we finished she got us seated in a little restaurant outside the site. We couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Valentina!
