OverviewHide
Walk amid the ruins of one of the world’s truly epic wonders, the ancient Roman city of Pompeii. This archaeological discovery has fascinated the world for ages, becoming the subject of film and books alike. This tour travels inside the lost city for a guided exploration of its ancient temples and porticoes. Explore a world that bustled with activity until a fateful day in 79 AD when Mt. Vesuvius exploded in a cataclysm of fire and ash, burying the city in an instant. Lost for 1,700 years beneath 30 feet of cinder, it now stands resurrected and seemingly alive with ghosts of the past. Witness the famous casts of ancient citizens frozen in their volcanic tombs. See the ruins of grand mansions, once home to wealthy patricians. Experience the remains of a day when time stopped for an entire city on a tour that’s nothing less than legendary.
