An entire day exploring the fascinating ancient city - Skip-the-line included!


A full day tour in the ancient Pompeii to discover as much as possibile about Romans' lifestyle and habits!

The Sun path marked the daily activities of the inhabitants of ancient Pompeii.
The shops opened at dawn; the Forum got filled with merchants and sellers.
People went to the Baths - also opened to slaves - and went to numerous pubs, to get a warm meal or a game of dice.
The amphitheater represented the main attraction in town. Its performances were popular, as they also were the occasion for their sponsors to improve their "cursus honoris" (political carrier).
The brothels were also very popular, destined to sexual pleasure.
A cosmopolitan atmosphere and a mixing of different religions were granted by the presence of a very busy port.

Come to revive those atmospheres with an unforgettable guided tour!
