Full description
Discover how the people of Pompeii and Herculaneum lived 2,000 years ago. A top-rated guide will lead you through the daily life of these two Roman cities, allowing you to imagine their lives through the well-preserved ruins. 

Visit the numerous buildings in which residents went about their everyday lives, including some temples, the theaters, the forum and baths, as well as some of the most lavish homes decorated with frescoes and mosaics. See how Roman citizens would cross the roads using very big stone crosswalks so that they wouldn’t get muddy. 

The town of Herculaneum was buried by the great eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. However, unlike Pompeii, Herculaneum was buried deep in hot ash which allowed a better preservation of the buildings, wooden items and food. The houses, baths, taverns, and temples are undamaged and objects like beds and doors remain perfectly-preserved.
