A walking tour back to the past

We will discover the ancient roman life through the ruins of Pompeii.

With the knowledge of an archaeologist you can understand the little details of the daily life and the amazing architectonic buildings that had made Romans one of the most important civilizations the world has ever seen.

This 3-hour tour is a great way to see the most important areas of the ancient city while also offering the opportunity to discover hidden and secret areas out of the tourist routes.



With this tour you have the possibility to see and understand very clearly the public areas: Theatres, Thermal Baths, Forum (Main Square), Sacred Area (temple of Apollo, Temple of Jupiter).

We will investigate also the private building: Thermopolium (a roman "fast food"), Bakery, the Fabric Market.

I'll show and explain you one of the most well preserved roman houses and the famous plaster casts of the victims of the eruption of 79 A. D.

Roberto was able to explain so much about Pompeii. His interest and understanding of Pompeii was really great. We learned so much. We had always wanted to see it, and Roberto made it all the more fascinating and real. He is a wonderful guide!!!
