Full description
Take a trip back in time from wherever you are in the world to Pompeii. Take part in a live online tour of one of the leading cities of the ancient world and have the chance to ask your archaeologist and guide questions.   Uncover the history and culture of this incredible archeological site. Hear about when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD and covered the city in a pyroclastic surge, and how it lay forgotten for millennia. Transport yourself back to Roman times with stories about how Pompeii was a once-bustling city of terracotta-tiled rooftops, sweeping villas, and thriving public life. Imagine a constant stream of sights and sounds as you virtually visit the former sites of busy markets, the vibrant network of brothels, and the robust agricultural community. Listen as your expert guide divulges the secrets they have come to learn in their studies. They will share often overlooked articles of interest about Pompeii before and after the eruption of Vesuvius. For as much as there is to know about the ancient city of Pompeii, there is still so much left unanswered after two millennia of being shrouded in mystery. Your specialist guide will help to answer these questions. Escape back to the past to learn what life was like for the 12,000-15,000 people that once resided there. Travel down into the former shadows, now illuminated by expert research, to discover a bevy of ancient artifacts excavated from the destruction in 79 AD. Capture an ancient snapshot of everyday life during the 1st century.

It was fantastic, it was three of us of different ages and we all deeply enjoyed. It was the right length, content, pitch--the guide Ilaria was very well prepared, with excellent material, funny and humorous at the right level. Highly recommended!!
