Full description
We’ll begin in Pompeii. First, you’ll visit the immense Forum, the centre of Pompeii’s political and commercial life. From here you can walk through a dense network of streets. Your guide will then take you to Herculaneum, often described as a jewel of archaeology. A once glamorous town that overlooked the sea, Herculaneum was the holiday retreat for the rich people of Rome. With your expert archaeologist guide, you’ll learn the differences and similarities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Although Vesuvius buried both cities in AD 79, the impact of the disaster wasn’t quite the same. Herculaneum is better preserved than Pompeii. Upper floors of elegant buildings remain standing, which you can see at the Casa del Salone Nero and the Casa Sannitica. You’ll love the beautiful mosaics and charred but extraordinarily intact furniture. At the thermal baths, you’ll learn of the recreational bathing culture and admire fine decorations perfectly preserved. You’ll won’t believe that you’re gazing at life dating back two millennia.
