What to expect

Among the most visited sites in Italy, Pompeii was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. The site is a perfect representation of everyday life in ancient Rome in the first century AD, just before the city was destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius.

This guided tour allows you to learn about buildings, private homes, the two theaters, the brothel, the spas, and a thermopolium. Walk along the Via dell'Abbondanza (Street of Abundance), the busiest street in the city, with important homes and popular shops. Visit the huge amphitheater, designed to accommodate up to 20,000 people, and admire the beautifully preserved frescoes and marble decorations that tell us how Romans lived back in the 1st century AD. Observe the plaster casts of the inhabitants as they were surprised by the eruption. Along the way, your guide will also point out the typical electoral notices that you can see throughout the city.
