Pompeii and Herculaneum Day Tour

Pompeii and Herculaneum are two of the world’s most famous archaeological sites, dating back to the Ancient Roman era.

Tour Description

Both destroyed by Vesuvius in 79 AD, they left behind a glimpse into the daily life of Ancient Romans living in the Empire’s cities. In Pompeii, you’ll visit the Roman Forum, baths, theatre, a brothel, and ancient shops. Peer into the lives of the ancient city’s inhabitants, as you visit their houses and the streets they walked along every day. You can also glimpse the famous ‘plaster cast’ bodies of its former citizens, frozen in the final moments of their lives as Vesuvius erupted.

At Herculaneum, you’ll get the chance to see the stunning mosaics of the House of Neptune and Amphitrite, the gymnasium, the college of the Augustales and many other interesting structures, including the boat houses where remains of the city’s inhabitants were found as they attempted to flee the eruption. This tour will help you gain a better understanding as to how the ancient Romans lived: their dwelling places, what they ate, how they worked and how they played. You’ll learn all about that fateful day in 79 AD when Vesuvius erupted, destroying cities but preserving for us a valuable means of learning about one of history’s most enduring civilisations.
