THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR NEEDS AND REQUESTS.
PLEASE ENQUIRE FOR BIGGER GROUPS.

This tour consists in a marvellous walk around of the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, buried from the ashes of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 a. D. I'll be able to show you most of the highlights of the towns!

A walk in Pompeii is a very intense experience; you'll have the feeling of wandering in a town that is still alive. You will see how the ancient Romans really lived.

Herculaneum is much smaller but better preserved then Pompeii.
Second stories, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics are still preserved, you'll see the really life of the ancient Romans before the Volcano buried them all.
