Full description
Enjoy an intimate tour of one of the world’s most famous archaeological sites on a 2.5-hour guided walking tour of Pompeii. Learn about middle class life in Ancient Rome among the ruins of a city buried by volcanic ash and lava when Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD. Available as a small group of a maximum of 14 participants, each tour investigates the colorful history of the seafaring city and its bars, brothels, theaters and streets. Learn about the spectacular dramas that took place in the Theater, and the gossip that made the walls of the Thermal Baths blush. Visit the athletic fields where all the sporting events took place.  Imagine the vendors hawking their wares in the many markets along the streets. Visit the remains of wine cellars and restaurants. Take note of the Amphitheater, once alive to the echo of the gladiators’ clashing swords. Discover the infamous “Red Light District.” Stop in the Forum to hear about Pompeii’s religious and political life. See hallowed temples and public buildings where policy was made in the early Empire. Imagine streets filled with processions and travelers sailing to port to attend grand ceremonies.
