Pompeii and Herculaneum Private Tour

This tour consists of a pleasant walk around the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, buried by the ashes of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 a. D.

A walk in Pompeii is a very intense experience; clients will have the feeling of wandering in a town that is still alive.During the eruption Pompeii and its inhabitants were buried by tons of pumice and volcanic ash, which preserved many things and materials in amazing conditions.

Herculaneum is much smaller but better preserved than Pompeii. While Pompeii had been covered in four to five meters of ashes, an avalanche of muds 20 meters thick had buried Herculaneum. Second floors of the buildings, carbonized wooden objects, intact paintings and mosaics are still preserved. The site gives a vivid impression of the opulent lifestyle enjoyed by the wealthier citizens of the Roman Empire. It is worth to visit it to get an idea of how the Romans lived in the imperial period.
