Full description
Amongst the most visited sites in Italy, Pompeii was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997. The site is a perfect representation of everyday life in ancient Rome in the first century A.D, just before the city and its inhabitants was buried by the eruption of Vesuvius. Discover the buildings, private homes, the two theaters, the brothel, the spas, and a thermopolium that characterized the everyday life of the town. Walk down the so–called Street of Abundance, the most significant street in the city, with important homes and popular shops. Visit the huge amphitheatre, designed to accommodate up to 20,000 people, and admire the beautifully preserved frescoes and marble decorations. Follow your private guide to see the real traces of the inhabitants – and sometimes even their shapes – when they were surprised by the eruption and huddled up for protection.
