A full day immersion in Roman Times


Both these legendary cities were buried by the same eruption of 79 AD. With me you will understand that there are many differences between Pompeii and Herculaneum.

We will start to see the most important public buildings that the archaeologists found in Pompeii.

In Herculaneum, we will instead investigate the private buildings.

I'll also explain the differences of the eruption that buried the two cities and that permits to see in Pompeii the plaster casts and in Herculaneum the carbonized wood of two thousand years ago.

A Recent Review of this tour

My family greatly enjoyed our day touring Pompeii & Herculaneum with Roberto. We saw the highlights of Pompeii and then spent the afternoon going more in depth at Herculaneum. Herculaneum is a lesser known gem and it is clear that Roberto enjoys touring this site. Roberto definitely knows and is able to convey a tremendous amount of information about both sites and could easily relate facts and stories to our 2 young daughters (ages 11 and 9).
