Experience

Highlights
  • See the world’s best-preserved Roman ruins at Pompeii
  • Learn firsthand about the culture, lifestyle, and politics of ancient Romans
  • Stand before the moving plaster casts of the victims
Full description
Visit Pompeii, an ancient Roman city buried for centuries under the ash of Mount Vesuvius' enormous eruption in 79 AD. One of the most significant archaeological sites in the world, Pompeii allows the visitor to glimpse an incredibly well-preserved snapshot of Roman everyday life, language, and culture.
 
Allow a knowledgeable guide to recreate the story of Pompeii, narrating the events of demise as well as the significance of the traces left behind. Imagine what it would have been like to experience the high culture of ancient Rome in Pompeii’s theaters and grand houses, adorned with frescoes in dazzling colors and mosaics in marble. Then see a different side of Pompeii with a visit to the local brothel. Go from these extremes to an encounter with everyday life in the ancient port city. Let your guide paint a picture of how life was for ordinary citizens, from their homes and living conditions to the fast food places, restaurants, and other businesses that reveal how similar an ancient Roman town is to a modern one.

From there, move on to prominent public and political spaces with a stop at the bath houses and temples of the Roman Forum. End your tour on a more somber note by viewing the plaster casts of Pompeii’s citizens, frozen in their final moments nearly 2,000 years after their death.
