Wolfgang Goethe wrote : “Many catastrophes happened in the world but only few managed as much joy to the posterity”. It seems unreasonable but the archeological sites like those of Herculaneum and Pompeii owe its extraordinary importance to a terrible calamity like the Vesuvius eruption of 79 a.c. Visiting both sites is like to jump in the past!!!!
We will provide you a car with an english speaking driver who will meet you at the lobby of your hotel and then we drive you to Pompeii, where you will have the opportunity to visit the famous ruins. We begin our tour from the entrance of Ancient Pompeii: the Sea Gate, Porta Marina. The guide will take you to the main square (forum), the theatres, the villas (domus), the taverns( cauponae) and food courts ( thermopolia) of the town..
We will visit the Suburban Thermal Baths, profusely decorated with worthy plasters and pictures. We will spend more time in the Forum, the hearth of the economic, civil and religious life of Pompeii where the Temples of Jupiter and Apollo were located as well as the Basilicas where the justice was usually administered .
This tour will be a full immersion back to the Roman times. The visit of Pompeii will last 2 and half hours and then you will proceed with the second site of this engaging archelogical itinerary: Herculaneum, with the visit to the Deers’ House, one of the richest and noble dwellings of Herculaneum.
