THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR NEEDS AND REQUESTS.

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. In 4 hours 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. I will tell you about the history of the town and how the Romans lived, showing you all the most important public buildings and private houses.

Herculaneum is much smaller but better preserved then Pompeii. While Pompeii had been covered in four to five meters of ashes, an avalanche of muds 20 meters thick had buried Herculaneum.
Second stories, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics are still preserved. With my explanation I'll make the city come to life.

A Recent Review of this tour

One of the best TBL trips we have taken. Felicia provided the expected wealth of facts and information , but added a personal perspective from her background as an art restorer and native of Pompei. The trip was described correctly in her write-up plus she wove in the local pride that comes from viewing the sites her entire life. Felecia was very personable and has excellent English. Highly recommended.
