Full description

See dead people, or rather the petrified shapes they left behind during the eruption that rocked the city of Pompeii and its surroundings. Witness moments frozen in time as your archaeologist guide leads you through this Luna Park-like tour of the old Roman city on foot.

Listen to your guide and learn hidden secrets and fine details about life leading up to the famous eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. Get a glimpse of the daily life of Pompeii's ancient inhabitants, including the markets where they shopped. Learn about the construction of aqueducts. Look at the schools where their children studied, the amphitheaters and sporting facilities where they were entertained, and the spas where they bathed. Enter an ancient brothel where erotic murals adorn the walls. See aspects of every walk of life, including the preserved forms of animals.

Antonio war ein toller guide, er hat alles gut erklärt und sich auf das wesentlich beschränkt. Die Kommunikation mit dem Veranstalter war einfach und reibungslos via WhatsApp möglich. Die Führung ging 2/2,5 h. Für den Preis hätten wir uns volle 3 h gewünscht. Ansonsten ist die Tour sehr empfehlenswert.
