THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED

This tour consists in a marvelous walk around of the ancients 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!
A walk in Pompeii is a very intense experience; you'll have the feeling of wandering in a still alive town. I will explain you 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. While Pompeii had been covered in four/five meters of ashes, an avalanche of muds 20 meters thick had buried Herculaneum.
It is still possible seeing second stories, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics. With my explanation I'll make the city come to life.

**AS YOU ARRIVE TO POMPEII I CAN BUY THE TICKETS FOR YOU IF YOU WISH, SO TO SKIP THE LINE, EVERYTHING WILL BE DONE IN 5-10 MINUTES**

A Recent Review of this tour

Our day with Giancarlo (and our driver Francesco) was BRILLIANT. It was a good thing we did the sites in the advertised order since the splendour of Herculaneum would have overshadowed what is so widely known as an archaeological / historical powerhouse at Pompeii. Giancarlo brought both ancient cities to life for us, his enthusiasm being utterly contagious. Having watched a lot of people stumbling around looking lost, I know for sure this is the only way to see the ancient wonders. Simply awesome.
