The best local tour guides in Pompeii will take you through a fascinating journey back to the Roman Empire when Pompeii and the Volcano Vesuvius area were the most beautiful resort in Italy.
This 2.5 hours tour includes the highlights of Pompeii: the theatre, the thermal baths, the rich domus, the Gladiators’ Gym, the fountains, the Forum, the mills, and much more. In 79 AD this historic city fell victim to an eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, and the thriving metropolis was no more. To visit these world-renowned ruins is to experience life as it once was, on the shores of the Bay of Naples, in the early Empire.
First, we will visit the Theatre to imagine comedies and tragedies that played out upon the stage. Next, it’s on to the ornate Thermal Baths, with their dressing rooms, baths, toilets, and athletic fields. These early health clubs were truly ahead of their time. The streets of Pompeii were alive with purveyors of food, clothing and – slaves. We’ll visit wine cellars, restaurants and bars. We’ll compare prices and learn of rare vintage recipes as we imagine life in this bustling metropolis of old. We’ll admire the ancient barracks, domain of gladiators, and the infamous red-light district . . .
No trip to Pompeii would be complete without a stop in the Forum. The awe-inspiring domain of priests and temples, politicians and public buildings, this is where art, philosophy, theology, and economics of Pompeian culture meld.
