Full description
Enjoy a 2-hour walking tour of Pompeii and experience what life was like in an everyday Roman town in 79 AD, with an archeological guide. Start at Porta Marina, one of the best-preserved city gates. Walk along the original basalt road of volcanic rocks, looking down at hundreds of little white travertine spots used to reflect torchlight. See big blocks of basalt emerging from the road used by pedestrians to avoid getting wet when it rained.

Explore the buildings of the Forum, such as the Temple of Apollo, Temple of the Emperor, and Macellum market. You will also see a display of human casts of Pompeii residents that got killed by the erupting volcano, preserved in the exact pose they died in. Discover the Roman equivalent of today’s fast-food restaurants, and see the bakeries of Pompeii where carbonized loaves of bread were found during excavations.
