Full description
Travel back to the Bronze Age of Rome and witness a city frozen in time with this skip-the-line walking tour. Stroll through the streets of Pompeii in Southern Italy and marvel at ancient archeological artifacts. Visit Pompeii’s arena, and see plaster casts of the preserved inhabitants' bodies. They are exactly as they were when the volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted in Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79 A.D. You'll see for yourself why the area was designated a UNESCO World Heritage, whose ruins were preserved to near perfection thanks to a thick blanket of volcanic ash. Discover the city’s most famous attractions, like the Forum of Pompeii, the plaster casts, and even the brothel. Then head over to another highlight of the tour: the Villa of the Mysteries (Villa dei Misteri). There you’ll see frescoes depicting a Greco-Roman cult and further explore the secrets of this enigmatic villa. Once the guided tour has ended, you are welcome to stick around and continue to explore the wonders of Pompeii on your own.
