Pompeii ruins guide tour

Pompeii ruins Pompeii ruins

With 2 million tourists per year, Pompeii is one of the most important archaeological sites in Italy, if not the world.

Discover the remains of the Roman city with a professional and . See ancient ruins, destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, leaving the city buried under mountains of volcanic ash.
The force of the eruption was many thousands of times greater than an atomic bomb. Unsurprisingly, the entire population was wiped out but the ash combined with the lack of moisture to preserve much of Pompeii. And what you witness today is an extraordinary insight into the life of a city during Roman times.

Your guide will take you to see houses and everyday items that were still almost intact when the city was unearthed. Experience this everyday Roman town, almost like it was under the Roman Empire.

Highlights include the Roman Amphitheater, small theater, and public gymnasium. See places where the Romans had their fun and held banquets, and discover frescoes frozen in time, and poignant casts of citizens and their pets.

You can see the remnants of the all-important aqueduct, which provided water for 25 street fountains, at least four public baths, and a large number of private houses and businesses. There are numerous statues and frescoes, and all in all you get a remarkable picture of a real, functioning town. Just one that happened to exist more than two millennia ago (though it was wiped out in 79 C.E., the town was founded about 700 years prior).
