An immersion in the classic world best preserved archaeological towns (by public transportation) - skip the line included
THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR NEEDS AND REQUESTS.
This tour consists in a marvelous 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 than 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.

Anna was a wonderful tour guide. We did Pompeii and Herculaneum in a full day, and got so much more from the day with Anna's knowledgable, professional, insightful and anecdotal guidance than we would have without her. Her experience as an archaeologist shone through in her passion and knowledge and the whole family loved it. The bonus was that she was also excellent company. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to anyone!
