A visit to the ancient Roman cities buried by Mt. Vesuvius' eruption - skip the line included
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.
This tour in Pompeii allows seeing in detail the western part of the ancient town where the most important public buildings homes and shops are located with these highliths: Marina Gate, the Basilica, the Forum, the Forum baths, the Lupanar, the bakery, the house of Faun, the Termopolium Capuano, the house of Tragic Poet, the plaster casts.
. Transfer by train to Herculaneum (30 minutes trip + 10 minutes walk) and quick lunch break if you wish
A wonderful tour through the city of Herculaneum with Temple of the Augustali, the beach where more then 300 skeletons were found, the thermal baths, the forum, the house of Neptune and Amphitrite, the Samnite house, the gymnasium, the house of the Dears and much more.

Our comments re. our trip to Pompeii and Herculaneum, September 28, 2017, by tour guide, Sergio P. We read rave reviews about Sergio before we chose Toursbylocals to guide us on our Pompeii and Herculaneum tours. We have nothing more to offer than to say that Sergio was a terrific guide. He certainly knows his subject matter and seems to thoroughly enjoy sharing the information with others. He was thorough, patient, and has a great sense of humor. I would recommend Sergio to ANYONE who may be visiting
