Pompeii and Herculaneum Shared Small Group tour with an Archaeologist
This tour consists of a pleasant walk around the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, buried by the ashes of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 a. D.
The tour is in English only for a small group of 15 people maximum and it will start at the main entrance of Pompeii (Porta Marina Superiore).
During the eruption Pompeii and its inhabitants were buried by tons of pumice and volcanic ash, which preserved many things and materials in amazing conditions. After the tour in Pompei you’ll have the time to grab some lunch or to stroll on the souvenirs shops outside the ruins.
Then we will take the Circumesuviana train leading to Ercolano (20 in trip) and will start our walk in the ruins.
While Pompeii had been covered in four meters of ashes, an avalanche of muds 20 meters thick had buried Herculaneum. The site gives a vivid impression of the opulent lifestyle enjoyed by the wealthier citizens of the Roman Empire. The tour ends in Herculaneum.
