Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii – Private Full Day Tour

2 pax from 800

Mont Vesuvius and Pompeii since 79 AD have been tied forever. When the ashes of the Volcano crystallized the life of the Roman city the citizens of this harbor city had not even the time to recover and they were fixed forever in the position they died. Some of the bodies 2000 years later are still visible! You will hardly believe what you will see!

When Mount Vesuvius erupted in the year 79, the fallout from that volcanic explosion preserved much of the Roman towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum.
Pompeii gets most of the glory, described by Frommer’s as “Italy’s most famous archaeological site” and as “unique in the world”.
Nearby Herculaneum is smaller and gets less attention, but the ruins there are in an even better state of preservation.

The excavated area of Pompeii covers some 109 acres.
Although there are some large ruins, such as the amphitheater and the Temple of Vespasian, what sets Pompeii apart from so many ancient sites (aside from its scale) is that the common houses and streets remain well preserved.
What would be a mere foundation elsewhere is a two-story ruin in Pompeii.
That enables visitors to imagine what real life was in the Roman Empire, complete with its tiny apartments, carry-out eateries, public toilets and graffiti.

Herculaneum is less excavated than Pompeii due to the fact that it was buried in volcanic mud instead of ash, which hardened into a covering layer almost as hard as rock.
Also, much of the ancient town is situated underneath a modern town.
However, the same hardened mud that makes excavating Herculaneum so difficult created a set of ruins even better preserved than those of Pompeii.
Even artifacts such as an intact wooden Roman bed have been found there.
According to Frommer’s, the archaeological site leaves one with the feeling that “the town was abandoned only a short time ago”. Tour order may be reversed but all sites will be visited.
