Pompeii at the turn of time

Wonderful tour, guided with professionalism and full of historical, technical and curiosity information. The VR headset brought significant added value, giving us the opportunity to "see" in time and in a real place what could have been the city before the destruction. An experience that we can certainly recommend!

Awesome and impressive!

Our guides Alessia spoke good German, had a sense of humor and was very competent. The short films in the VR glasses made it possible to introduce yourself even more intensively to life in Pompeii at the time. A great thing, highly recommended!
