Visiting Pompeii is a unique experience: the city was submerged by the eruption of Vesuvius 79 AD and this made it remain intact at that time, giving us the opportunity to walk between domus with beautiful frescoes and mosaics, the shops of the time and the Amphitheater, and discover the moments of public and private life of the ancient Romans. We will then continue towards Vesuvius, the most known volcano in the world, dormant but still active. We will arrive at an altitude of 1000 meters by minibus and then continue on foot through a spectacular path that will show us from above the crater and on the outside the solidified flow of 1944. The tour is available every day in English and Italian.
