Life carried on normally until 24 August 79 AD, when the eruption of Vesuvius destroyed both Pompeii and Herculaneum, two towns on the outskirts of Neapolis. Pompeii was pelted with falling pumice stones while Herculaneum was blanketed by thick pyroclastic flow.

With this great private tour combining Pompeii,. Herculaneum and Vesuvius you'll discover the full story of an event that changed our knowledge of old Roman habits and history.

Pompeii is the most popular tourist attraction in Italy. Ever since Pliny the Younger wrote his moving letters to Tacitus describing the eruption of Mt Vesuvius that buried Pompeii in 79 A.D., the town has been the perfect subject for books, scholarly and frivolous and a perfect matter for the big screen. Much of the site, the richest insight into the daily life of the Romans, is open to the public and requires at least two hours to visit.

Smaller but no less valuable of Pompeii, is the town of Herculaneum. Herculaneum was buried by mud that allowed a remarkable preservation of the buildings. In Roman times, Herculaneum was a town of medium importance with luxurious homes along the sides of the promontory, overlooking the Gulf of Naples. The refinement of the decoration suggests that Herculaneum was a residential town, chosen by a population who appreciated the healthy climate and the peaceful atmosphere.Our professional guide will take you for two hours to explore this ancient place founded by Hercules.

And then the logical conclusion of the great tour is the visit of Mt Vesuvius, responsible for the destruction of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

Although it may seems strange, the eruption of Vesuvius caught both towns unprepared. In fact the last eruption took place before the foundation of Pompeii. On August 24, 79 AD Mount Vesuvius suddenly erupted a huge amount of pumice stones and poisonous gases that forever destroyed Pompeii and Herculaneum. Vesuvius is today the most famous volcano in the world: it has produced its own literature, imagery, scientific and universal insight but most of all it has engendered a huge amount of sheer astonishment.
