What to expect

Of all the Roman ruins in Italy, none is as poignant or fascinating as Pompeii. More than a moment frozen in time, it's a window into past. You'll discover its remarkably well-preserved houses and landmark sites on this morning excursion to this UNESCO Word Heritage Site.

Buried under volcanic ash by the 79 AD eruption of Mt Vesuvius – which still looms large in the distance – Pompeii brings to life ancient Rome. You'll tread the cobbled streets brought to life by a guided commentary through headsets.

All the major highlights here are covered – the forum, thermal baths, gymnasium and the market piazzas. You can still see frescoes on the walls of the homes of the Roman elite. Walking through its ruins is like leafing through the pages of a living history book.
