Pompeii Walking Tour with an Archaeologist

Explore beautiful ruins and go on a journey back in time to relive how this flourishing civilization came to an abrupt end

What's tour about

The cursed city of Pompeii once flourished with life, cultural awakenings, and a buzzing civilization. But when tragedy stroke and the Vesuvius erupted burning everything in its path, the city of Pompeii became remains and ruins perfectly preserved. You’ll be transported to another era. Wander through its streets and thanks to the historical and archeological background of your guide, the stories and facts will make the city come back to life.
The city of Pompeii once bustled with life and you can see that as you visit its theatre, the sacred area, and a brothel. What’s even more impressive is the plastered casts of some of the victims. Find out how the ashes and the techniques used to uncover the city helped to preserve the remains almost intact.
