The eruption of Vesuvius by A. D. 79 the ditrusse and covered it under about 8 meters of pumice, lapilli and ash. The tour lasts about 2 hours and will be a journey through history where you will see houses, theaters, baths, shops, brothels, casts of the victims, in an incredible state of conservation. It is a unique emotion to visit a Roman city that integrates in all its architectural aspects. During the tour I will talk about the public and private life of the ancient Romans.
