After a comfortable transfer from Rome on an air-conditioned coach, we offer a very special visit of the Archeological Museum of Pompei which houses in impression collection of original artefacts, mosaics, statues and artwork taken out of Pompeii during excavations, making it a perfect complement to your visit to the Pompeii excavation site! Entrance tickets, a thorough intro to the museum and detailed map will be provided as you will be free to roam the museum on your own.
After our time at the museum we'll take a leisurely lunch break, where you can experience the world-famous pizza Naples is known for.
When you are ready to go, it's on to the highlight of the day: Pompeii. Sitting in the ominous shadow of Vesuvius, the now ruined city of Pompeii was a sprawling metropolis of shops and residences, restaurants, gyms and brothels. Walk Pompeii's main streets just as the ancient Romans did. The stones are still worn with tracks from the drawn carriages that tread them nearly 2000 years ago. We'll visit the forum, the center of Pompeii's political and social life, as well as view the startling plaster death casts of the victims of the catastrophic eruption that destroyed the city, freezing forever in time their last second of life.
Join us on this comprehensive and fascinating tour of Pompeii and the powerful volcano that destroyed it and discover why this UNESCO World Heritage Site continues to shock and fascinate the 2.6 million people who venture here each year.
