ENTRANCE FEES ARE NOT INCLUDED
Meet with Your private local English-speaking guide in Pompeii in a prearranged place.
Welcome to the Roman Empire. This two-and-a-half hour private tour with a professional English-speaking guide will show you what a terrible effect the eruption of Mount Vesuvius had on Pompeii in 79AD. The ancient site of Pompeii is today one of the most popular tourist attractions in the world.
The volcano did not send melted lava tumbling towards the town; instead, a vast dark cloud rained ash and lumps of pumice stone. Heavier than volcanic debris, called lithics, may have been as big as 30cm. Floating pumice quickly clogged up and blocked roads, cutting off escape routes, so the remaining inhabitants were forced to find shelter. As the blanket of ash and stone built up around the town, they were trapped in their homes. This private guided tour will show you the roads, the houses, the shops of the ancient of Pompeii where this tragedy takes place leaving behind a vivid picture of the life in those times.
Take water, wear comfortable shoes, take camera & sun cream. In low season warmer clothing may be required.
