What to expect

Meet your guide by the old Porta Marina Superiore for a tour of the western part of Pompeii, site of the most important public buildings, homes, and shops. Step into the shoes of the Roman citizens of Pompeii as you walk the same streets that they walked.

With your guide learn how the town was buried under molten ash and lava by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD. Your guide will bring the Roman Republic to life as you experience the remarkably intact structures and learn how the Romans lived both in public and private.

Discover the highlights of Pompeii, such as the Basilica (Court House) and the Forum - center of political and social life during the Roman Empire. See the Lupanar (brothel), House of the Faun, Termopolium Capuano and House of the Tragic Poet. Marvel at plaster casts of humans and animals at the moment of their death, and go to a bakery where you can still see the remains of the utensils including the food!
