A full immersion in the Roman history


Pompeii and Herculaneum are the two most important archaeological sites in the world.
The two archaeological areas are so different although they are so close to each other. They are different, first of all, because the two ancient cities were different: Pompeii was bigger and was basically a trading city; Herculaneum was smaller and was essentially a residential town for rich. They are different, moreover, because both cities were destroyed by the same eruption of the volcano Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79, but the effects of the eruption were not the same and made them different also in the state of preservation.
Visiting both let you have a complete idea about the life in a Roman city 2000 years ago, investigating much better both public and private aspects of the Roman world.

Itinerary

We meet where previously agreed for the pick up and drive to Pompeii.

In Pompeii, we focus on the public life of the ancient Romans, because the public buildings are more numerous and better preserved than in Herculaneum. We go to see the theatres, the baths, the "red light district", the city centre and the famous "petrified bodies".

After the tour of Pompeii we get in the car and drive to Herculaneum. You can decide to have lunch in Pompeii, Herculaneum or in a place on the way before the tour of Herculaneum.

In Herculaneum, we can have a better and more intimate look at the private life of the ancient Romans. We see the skeletons of the victims and go to visit different private houses and shops.

We spend approximately 2 hours per each archaeological site plus time for lunch if you want to have it between the two visits.

At the end of the tour we drive to the place we previously agreed for the drop off.
