Since its discovery, Pompeii became a must for travelers more or less famous. It attracted kings, nobles, intellectuals, writers and artists who through their writing and their works determined its aesthetics consecration and spread its image around the world. Obviously this is due to the retention of a largely intact Roman city, including its inhabitants. Since 1997, Pompei is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, then it belongs to anyone who understands its value, uniqueness and exceptionality. This archaeological site, because of its incredible preservation and of the events that have permitted it, will not fail to impress also people who are not interested in history.
After the visit of Pompeii, 1 hour of free time and after that transfer to Herculaneum ruins for a 2-hour private visit with the same tour guide. Herculaneum was a smaller town close to the city of Pompeii but it is no less important and rich in treasures than Pompeii. In addition, the houses of Pompeii and Herculaneum are the most important source on the evolution of Roman painting from the second century BC to the 79 A.D. In fact nowhere else in the world there is such a large amount of wall paintings dated back to the Roman empire. These materials are very delicate and only because of the special circumstance such as the eruption of Vesuvius their preservation has been so good.
After that, back to the cruise ship or to the accommodation.
