  • Explore the hidden past of Pompeii
Full description
The sudden eruption of Vesuvius on August 24, 79 AD buried Pompeii under ash, creating what was rediscovered at the end of the 16th century. However, exploration only began in 1748 under the King of Naples, Charles III of Bourbon, and continued systematically throughout the 19th century, right up to the most recent excavations, restorations and enhancement of the city and its exceptional heritage of architecture, sculptures, paintings and mosaics. 

Enjoy a 2-hour walking guided tour, listen to the fascinating story of how this once-thriving city was destroyed almost in an instant by the massive amounts of volcanic ash and pumice erupting from the nearby volcano. Learn how this place was rediscovered in 1748 and has been in a continual state of restoration ever since. Discover the Roman city, go inside the most important buildings to see and understand how a Roman citizen lived, loved, worked, played and dined.

Take a break in a colorful place with an enchanting garden just in front of Porta Marina gate. Enjoy typical, yet delicious dishes at Chalet Hortus Porta Marina before concluding your tour.
